Samsung Galaxy S3 gets Premium Suite Upgrade

In a two-part blog entry in Samsung’s official global blog , the South Korean manufacturer detailed the new features included in the Premium Suite Upgrade that will hit Galaxy S3 users in the next coming weeks. Get to know these features included in this upgrade after the break.

Ever since Google released the latest iteration of their open-source platform, manufacturers have been busy porting the Jelly bean upgrade for their devices. Wanting to differentiate itself from the rest, Samsung has also included a ton of new features to the update, which they coined Premium Suite Upgrade, instead of just boringly updating their current flagship device’s OS.

Contextual Awareness

• Page Buddy: Your phone will smartly predict what you intend to do according to your actions. For example, when you plug in your earphones, the device automatically opens up a page with the music player.

• Contextual Menu: When you list up apps, you can now choose to see the most frequently used ones first. Especially convenient when you’re looking through apps to find files to attach.

• Contextual Tag: When you take a picture on the phone, you can tag the weather, date, and place immediately.

Enhanced Features

• Multi-Window: You can open two different apps at the same time into two different windows on the mobile screen.

• Auto Share Shot Pairing using NFC: By setting the camera to ‘Auto Share Shot’ mode, you can quickly share your photos and videos by simply tapping their GALAXY S III with other NFC and S-Beam enabled devices.

• Reader Mode: You can easily control the size of the text on your browser! Also, you can just click the webpage to share it!

• Facebook Lock Ticker: The easiest way to see your Facebook News Feeds – set your phone to show it on your lock screen.

Here’s a short video clip that showcases the aforementioned features:

Powerful Multimedia
• Paper Artist: You can make a picture like a pop artist! Change the moods of your pictures whenever you want!

• Camera, Low Light Shot: It’s always tough to take pictures in dark places. So the GALAXY S III with Premium Suite has a Low-Light-Shot function. Get your hands on one and check out the difference!

• Camera, Best Face: The problem with group pictures? Somebody always, ALWAYS blinks. Well, Best Face is your solution to that. Best Face takes 5 consecutive pictures and lets you choose the best face for each person among those shots.
New Features & Better Accessibility

• Easy Mode: For first-time smartphone users and/or those who are really really, well, lazy. This function helps you set up the most five frequently used widgets on the home screen, so you don’t have to be tired of looking everywhere to find those apps.

• Sound Balance: You can adjust the balance of volume one each side of earphones.

• Setup Wizard: After turning on your cell phone, you can see the accessibility menu right away on the screen.

• Camera Easy Snap: With ‘talk back’ and ‘face detection’ on your settings menu, the GALAXY S III tells you how many faces it can detect on the camera preview.

Unfortunately, Samsung didn’t mention when they plan to start seeding this awesome update. All they disclosed was that the update is dependent on location and network carrier. It’s a bummer no doubt, but we feel that the Premium Suite Upgrade should be worth the wait.

    Sadly the NFC is still useless when you don’t have a second Samsung device.

  13. Howdy fantastic website! Does running a blog similar to

    blog in the near future. Anyways, if you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off topic but I just wanted to ask.
    Thank you!
