Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update leaks out: See it here!
We heard last week that a Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update was in the pipeline, and it appears to be right on schedule. As always happens as we near the release of a big upgrade, Samsung’s Android 4.1 ROM for the hit phone has leaked out online, and inevitably popped up on YouTube for all to see. So what can we expect?
YouTube user Triforce2k8 has uploaded a video of his Samsung Galaxy S3 running a leaked version of the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update Samsung has in the works, rumoured to be announced on 29 August. While there are no drastic changes to Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface, you can clearly see the improvements, including the new tray with smart notifications, which you can carry out actions from without diving into the app.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly bean update also brings Google Now, the flagship new feature in Android 4.1, which offers advanced voice control, and intelligent search suggestions based on your locale, calendar and other data: glance at your phone, and you’ll find it’s popped up train timetables as you arrive at the station.
Is this the real dea? It looks almost certainly legitimate, and would be an impressively swift roll out on Samsung’s part. Expect more details on the upgrade as we move closer to the launch, and check out the full video here.
Will this make you pick a Samsung Galaxy S3 over the iPhone 5? Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments.
