The much awaited Android 4.2 jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 is finally over though it’s a pre-release version of the update that is now available for the past few days. So those who have been impatient for it now have something to look forward to. It is also expected that the update will introduce many of the features of the Galaxy S4 when it is launched, which is most likely to happen in July or August. Various sources has earlier pin pointed the update to be made available to the S3 as well as the Note 2 device during quarter 3 of this year. Even earlier estimates has predicted the months of May to June as most likely for the update for the erstwhile Samsung flagship devices to be released. That seems to have been postponed to allow Samsung to further fine tune TouchWiz UI.
For those who wish to try out the new Android 4.2 update for the S3 can do so well before its official launch in July or in August. SamMobile has confirmed that this version is only a pre-release version which means there are every possibility of it being buggy. It appears as if the released version has the features of Galaxy S4 as was announced by Samsung, which includes the latest camera feature, lockscreen, latest voice control as also latest S voice feature. The update is surely going to bring a change among the older version that one is using since its release in June 2012.
U.S. based carrier is expected to be lagging behind when it is about the releasing date. However, Sprint could be the exception here as it has proved to be ahead of the pack when it’s about launching updates for its devices.
