South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics has already started to deliver the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean operating system upgrade to its international Samsung Galaxy S III LTE GT-I9305 models.Galaxy S III, the current flagship Android handset from Samsung, is also the best-selling phone in the company’s lineup at the moment, made available in a wide range of markets around the world, as well as in a variety of flavors.
The original Galaxy S III handset has started to receive the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean platform upgrade not too long ago, and the LTE version is also getting a taste of it now.
As usual, the update will be pushed to devices in phases, which means that not all users will get access to it right from the start.
Moreover, chances are that the update won’t arrive on carrier-specific models soon, so users will have to be patient on this one.
The international flavor of Galaxy S III LTE will receive a nice range of features in the new update, bringing its capabilities a bit closer to what Galaxy Note II has to offer at the moment.
Following the update to Android 4.1.2 (build JZO54K), the Multi-View (Multi-Windows Multitasking) feature present on Note II will be available on the LTE-enabled Galaxy S III units as well.
Furthermore, users will benefit from enhancements such as Page Buddy, Smart Rotation (with the display adjusting based on the angle of sightings), and a customizable Notification Panel, SamMobile explains in a recent post.
There is also the option to disable the Brightness slider in Notification Panel, and Continuous Input in Samsung keyboard (similar to the one available through Swipe or Android 4.2 keyboard).
Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean also brings along the Paper Artist and Group Cast applications on Galaxy S III LTE, as well as a new Gallery App (the same as on Note II).
