Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update (Premium Suite) for Samsung Galaxy S III i9300 rolls out in Europe today
Samsung has started rolling out a new software update to its Galaxy S III i9300. The update brings Android 4.1.2 to the handset, and includes features detailed by Samsung not long ago in its Premium Suite videos.
SamMobile is reporting that the 4.1.2 JB update is available now for Galaxy S III Ii9300 units in the UK, Germany, Poland, Switzerland, and Romania.
To recap, here is what you’re getting with the new update:
- Multi-Window multitasking (a feature already available on Galaxy Note II units)
- Camera enhancements (low light mode, Best Face, expanded Panorama mode)
- New Gallery app
- Customizable Notification Panel
- Smart Rotation
- Improved touch response
- AllShare Cast
- Smart Dock
- Paper Artist app
- Group Cast app
In the US, the Galaxy S III has only recently received Android 4.1.1 from Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile (US Cellular will start pushing the upgrade tomorrow, December 21). The update to 4.1.2 will probably arrive sometime early next year. We will obviously let you know if it does.
Samsung has sold more than 30 million Galaxy S III smartphones around the world – since May, when the handset was initially launched. The company hopes that the total number of units sold until the end of the year will reach 40 million. We should find out next month if that happens.
