Hello everybody,

The german device is just on Android 4.3 with ROM I9300XXUGMK6.
Now I get some devices with french text on Android 4.1.2 with ROM I9300XXEMG4.

Is there a difference between the german and the french SGS3? Something like provider rom?

Thanks

To make it short- if the device is region free / unlocked - there is no difference at all, except 3 minor things:

1- supported languages: for some reasons, suppliers prefer to hide the built-in support of 4.1 (and above) android of all languages.

2- different modems- some roms have a modem that works great in specific countries.

3- built in apps- suppliers sometimes love to integrate some apps in the system, some that are completely useless...

For the difference between the two you mentioned- if they don't belong to a specific supplier- just go with the newest one. Also, most of the custom roms solves the issues above, so if you're planning to install one, I strongly suggest that you'll try the one of them- especially the one in my signature
