Samsung has started to roll out the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the international version of Samsung Galaxy S3. The Samsung flagship is one of the best-selling smartphones of the year, therefore I am expecting it to receive the latest Android versions pretty quick.
You should keep in mind that the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S3 will roll out gradually, therefore it won’t be available all on the markets in the same time.
As soon as you will be able to update your Samsung Galaxy S3 to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean you will receive some of the features that made Galaxy Note 2 a special smartphone. The build number of the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S3 is “JZOO54K,” and it packs the highly-anticipated Multi View multitasking system, the famous method to run applications simultaneously on the same screen.
The toggles in the notifications area can now be customizes, while the brightens slider that appears under the toggles can be disabled.
The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S3 also brings the Smart Rotation function, which rotates the display depending on the viewing angle of the user. Least, but not last you will receive applications like Paper Artist or Group Cast, plus continuous input on Samsung’s default keyboard, reminiscent of the Sywipe in Android 4.2 AOSP keyboard.
If the software update didn’t popped up in the notifications area, you can update your Samsung Galaxy S3 to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean JZOO54K by connecting the terminal to Kies or OTA, by manually checking for the update for the latter method. Just go to Settings > About Device > Software Update > Check for Updates and see whether the new firmware has rolled out for your device.
You should know that the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update will first hit the unlocked international variants of the Samsung Galaxy S3, therefore if you purchased a carrier-branded terminal, you will still have to wait for the firmware update, but it can’t be too far away.
