Any updates for the S3 mini

Hi all.
I am sure this may have been asked many times but I cannot find a clear answer.
Is there any updates for the android OS on the s3 mini either in the pipeline or ever planned.
I love my phone but have never had a update. All other Galaxy S series phones have recieved a updated OS but nothing for the poor little brother.
Any help would be appreciated. I am considering a upgrade depending on the response and am even considering the dreaded iphone as they all recieve updates.
Fot the record I choose the mini Galaxy phones due to size....
Thanks in advance.

In order to answer I need to know what you've got now.
Can you dial *#1234# and tell me what CSC you are running please?

Probably one for @Chris_K to answer.


If it's an O2 branded phone he would be the best bet.....

I thought O2 had released 4.3 but to be honest I  wouldn't bother with it.

4.1.2 is the latest released by Samsung for the S3 Mini and they do not have any plans to update it any further. The phone is now 2 years old which is the end of the life cycle for Samsung updates.

2 years is about standard (Apple might offer you longer depending on the hardware capability of the device), but you have the chioce of installing a Custom Rom on your phone.

There are three 4.4.4 ROM's on XDA to choose from and countless other levels - It's entirely up to you Smiley Happy
