While the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S3 is still awaited by the owners of the device, the company hasn’t mentioned anything about when it’s going to be released. Nevertheless, we have good news. No, we don’t now when the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean firmware upgrade is going to be pushed out, but we found out that it will include some surprises.
After the Samsung Galaxy S4 presentation, which fortunately didn’t take too long because it was rather odd and all kinds of thoughts were crossing my mind, none of them were good, we know everything about the new flagship. You must be familiar with the specs of the Galaxy S4 too, so I won’t go in too much details. The handset is supposed to bring a lot of cash for the South Korean company, but its release might be a good think for the users of the Galaxy S3, as well, and I don’t mean the individuals who will go for an upgrade.
There are over 40 million Galaxy S3 users all over the world, is some of them might be wondering if the new features included on the Galaxy S4 will be available for its predecessor. It’s a good question and if you are one of the Galaxy S3 owners you will be happy to hear that the answer is “yes” and they will be included in the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update.
Samsung VP of Product Planning Nick DiCarlo has been kind enough to make all things clear by saying that all the cool new features will be available for all the flagship smartphones, as long as the functions don’t depend on the hardware sported only by the Galaxy S4.
However, if you hope that you’ll be getting the Air View feature on the Samsung Galaxy S3, I’m very sorry to tell you that you’re not that lucky. Also, there chances are small for you to receive applications like the TV remote and the S Health because they require an Infra Red port and a pedometer in order for them to work.
We don’t know exactly what features of the Galaxy S4 will be available for the Galaxy S3, but we can guess that the camera functions will be included in the update as they look like they don’t need complex software to work.
Also, the owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 should be pretty excited as well because since the phablet is a high-end device, it will most likely receive the features via the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update.
That’s it for now, but as soon we’ll have additional information about the matter we’ll let you know. Samsung has been busy preparing the Galaxy S4 Unpacked event, but now that it’s over, it will probably focus on other matters like the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update.
So, are you waiting for the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for your Galaxy S3, or you’ve already considering buying the S4?
