If you own an international version of the Samsung Galaxy S3, you’re in luck. The Android 4.3 update has finally begun rolling out for the former flagship device.

To be specific, Galaxy S3 handsets that have the model number GT-I9300 are eligible for the Android 4.3 over-the-air upgrade. Once installed, the device can enjoy not only all the new features of the last Jelly Bean version, but also Galaxy Gear support, TRIM support for faster performance, and other improvements in Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.

Many features that the newer Galaxy S4 came with are also now available for the S3.These include the move-to-SD feature, controlling the phone through voice commands, new screen modes, and the tabbed interface for the phone settings. GPU drivers have also been updated, resulting to better benchmark scores.

Galaxy S3 users in Ireland are reportedly the first to receive the Android 4.3 update, with other regions expected to follow suit.
