Jelly Bean 4.3 Update Samsung Galaxy Nexus has been released already. I installed Jelly Bean 4.3 Update Samsung Galaxy Nexus on my device about two weeks ago and found some distinct features compared to Jelly Bean 4.2.2.

You probably want to know what new features Jelly Bean 4.3 Update Samsung Galaxy Nexus brings. The followings are the complete list of new features of Jelly Bean 4.3 Update Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Restricted Profiles on tablet

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Restricted Profiles are similar to Kids Corner on Windows Phone. The feature of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Restricted Profiles lets you manage the apps and content which is accessible on a certain user account.

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Restricted Profiles enable parental controls, so certain family members are prevented from accessing mature content. 

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Bluetooth Smart support (Bluetooth Low-Energy)

As expected, version 4.3 brings low-energy Blutooth which has been dubbed Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Bluetooth Smart. Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Bluetooth Smart support minimises the amount of power used when connecting Bluetooth accessories and also measures the data being transmitted.

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OpenGL ES 3.0 support

4.3 Jelly Bean adds support for OpenGL ES 3.0, the latest standard for accelerated 3D graphics. Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OpenGL ES 3.0 brings photorealism to a whole new level in the games you're playing: blades of grass on the soccer field come alive, asphalt on the street looks real as you screech by, stubble on a villains' face almost pokes out of the screen.

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Dial pad autocomplete

If you start typing numbers, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Dial pad autocomplete will suggest contacts or numbers to call.

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Languages

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Language has improved its support – namely Hebrew, Arabic and Hindi. Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Languages enable right-to-left layouts across the platform user interface: dialer, home and lock screens, settings, and more. There's also added support for Afrikaans, Amharic, Swahili, and Zulu in Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Languages.
