SGS3 4.1.2 upgrade rolling out with Samsung ‘Premium Suite’

Samsung’s Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean upgrade for Galaxy S3 brings some new Premium features to TouchWiz

The Samsung Galaxy S3 has been incredibly popular and a much wanted upgrade to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean has been in the pipeline for some time. The upgrade has been rolling out for the unlocked international SGS3 in territories across the world –  if you have a carrier locked version it may take a little longer to become available.

As well as the standard Android updates in 4.1.2, Samsung have also included some extra features designed specifically for the SGS3 in this update, which they are calling their ‘Premium Suite’ and includes:

  1. Page Buddy: Predictive actions e.g. plugging in headphones activates music player
  2. Contextual Menu: Frequently used apps are first in the app list
  3. Contextual Tag: Weather / Date / Location can be immediately tagged on pictures
  4. Multi Window: Two open apps in two windows on the mobile screen
  5. Auto Share Shot: Use NFC to share pictures/videos by tapping devices together
  6. Reader Mode: Better control of web browser text size and instant page sharing
  7. Facebook Ticker: Convenient Facebook update ticker, viewable on lock screen

If you are yet to receive a 4.1.2 update for your Galaxy S3 then hold tight, it is likely to be with you soon, and remember connecting to Kies may search and force the upgrade if the OTA is taking too long for your liking! Also anyone with Premium Suite let us know how you’re getting along with the new features in the comments

    The only ones I’ve really noticed are Reader Mode and Multi-window.

    Reader Mode is quite handy when reading a non-mobile-optimised site, although other mobile browsers have had this functionality for a while now.

    Multi-window is extremely cool. Can’t say it’s been of use to me but I don’t use my phone for work or productivity; I can see how it’d be extremely useful to some people. My gf finds it handy on her Note II.
