Android 4.3 (M919UVUEMK2) Rolling out to the T-Mobile Galaxy S 4
No, it’s not Android 4.4 KitKat, but at least it’s a small step in the right direction. We’ve gotten word that the Android 4.3 update is now rolling out to the T-Mobile variant of the Galaxy S 4. This comes nearly an entire month after we saw the same update roll out to the Verizon model.
The rollout was first discovered by XDA Senior Member macaumen, who shared shared screenshots and installation details for the new update. Not too long after, the update was then pulled and mirrored by the fine folks over at Sammobile. Thankfully, XDA Senior Member omnifarious located and shared the link for others to jump into the update party a bit early. Alternatively, the update can be downloaded manually through Kies. Instructions on how to do that can be found in the T-Mobile link below.
As seen in previous Android 4.3 builds for most modern Samsung devices, this M919UVUEMK2 build features KNOX, as well as various other updates and tweaks. More information on the update can be found on T-Mobile’s Update Support Page.
What are your thoughts on the timing of this update? Are you upset that Verizon’s update 4.3 update came nearly a month earlier? Let us know in the comments below, and get in on the discussion over at the T-Mobile Galaxy S 4 forums.

Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
