Official Jellybean update for Galaxy S3 rolling out

Samsung had already started releasing the OS update for their current flagship device earlier than their target roll-out date with Polish users getting it first while its neighboring countries are next in line which is due to get the update in the coming days.

Some of the things that this update brings to the quad-core smartphone are listed below:

Snappier performance
UI enhancements
Resizable Pop-Up video
Revamped Notification bar
2 home screen modes
Google Now
Offline Voice Typing
S-Memo replaced by S-Note app
Enhanced browsing experience

Here’s a quick look at Jelly bean on SGS3 in action courtesy of SamMobile:

With the prompt release of this firmware update, it seems that the Samsung is starting to commit to their promises. As for their previous handsets, (SGN, SGSII and the like) we’ll just have to silently weep and hope that the South Korean company hasn’t forgotten our beloved devices.
