Samsung’s 2012 flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S3 and Note 2, are both set to make the jump directly to Android 4.3, bypassing Android 4.2 in the process.

The news comes via Deutsche Telekom, with a rep on its customer forum telling users that the Galaxy S3 would be making the move to Google’s latest version of Android.

Recent rumours have also suggested that the Note 2, which is set to be superseded by the Note 3 next month, will also be getting the same treatment.

The Galaxy S3 currently uses Android version 4.1.2. While the update won’t revolutionise the device, it will keep hardcore Google fanatics happy.

Samsung appears to be getting better at updating its older devices to newer software, with the Galaxy S2 also getting Android Jelly Bean.

This is in contrast to rival manufacturers, including HTC, which have struggled to roll out new versions of Google’s OS.
