Note: Our listing maybe in advance or otherwise outdated, if you'll try to update on Kies and couldn't find any of the latest firmware as written on the above list; Hopefully, that firmware will be available and to be released sooner on Kies or via OTA (Over the Air).

Some of the firmware updates have the same  build number but only varies on the CSC file for each specific country. The much easier way to check the latest firmware of your Samsung Android devices is to install Kies on your PC and let Kies do the job to find any firmware update available for your device.

We will try to keep this list updated from time to time, so that anyone who got a Samsung Galaxy R GT-I9103 in hand can get a little info to upgrade their devices firmware via OTA (over the air) or Kies server.
