Samsung's line of flagship devices will be getting Android 4.3 Jelly Bean soon enough.

According to Android Community, which obtained a copy of French carrier SFR's update cycle, the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, and Galaxy Note 2 will be getting Android 4.3 in the coming months. The Galaxy S4 will be first up with an update in October. The Galaxy S3 and Note 2 will get the updates in November or December.

Samsung updating to Android 4.3, which debuted in July, might prove a little disappointing to those who are eagerly anticipating Android 4.4 KitKat . It is unclear at this point when Android 4.4 will be released.

According to SFR, the HTC One will also get its Android 4.3 upgrade in October.
