The new Android 4.3 Jelly Bean build has been spotted on a Samsung Galaxy S4 and looks to be fully functioning on both the standard model as well as the Google Play version. Thanks to a bit of porting from the SamMobile team, the build appears to be a slightly modified take on the Jelly Bean experience that we’re already familiar with.

Details in the 4.3 release include a refreshed camera interface, more obvious sharing options and button, and a general design tweak.

Still no official word from Google or Samsung on the Android 4.3 business so it’s a matter of waiting until it’s rolled out to devices. Presumably, Nexus models get this first, followed by the Google Editions of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4. After that, however, it’s anyone’s guess. Let’s hope that the early access indicates quick deployment across handsets and tablets!
