Verizon’s Galaxy S 4 Mini is receiving an update today that brings it up to Android 4.3, complete with Galaxy Gear support. This helps the Mini catch up to the bigger Galaxy S 4, which has been on 4.3 for a few weeks. Aside from the Galaxy Gear support, you’ll also get a few extra Verizon
bloat apps, improved LTE connectivity, and Verizon changed Driving Mode to Hands-Free Mode. Sometimes I’m pretty sure Verizon will change something just to say they changed something.
Aside from those changes, you’ll get the updates that come with a new version of Android, even though 4.3 was primarily an under-the-hood release. Considering some features, like auto-complete in the dialer, were already implemented by Samsung in TouchWiz, you probably won’t see much of a difference there.
Let us know if any of you have gotten the update.
