At this moment in time the new Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the most popular smartphones on the market despite only being in circulation for four months. Although this phone is still relatively young users will soon be able to download an update that will upgrade the operating system on this phone to the latest Jelly Bean version of the Android platform.
It looks as though users of the Samsung Galaxy S3 may be able to download this new update as soon as August the 29th. The model will be one of the first to be given a Jelly Bean overhaul and numerous other handsets are expecting to get an update of their own over the coming months. Android fans will be delighted with this news although we are aware that many users do not know what software they are running or if an update is available. There are a host of changes present however that will benefit everybody from smartphone experts to the average phone user. One big change that will improve performance on the model is called Project Butter. This will be of great interest to quad core phone users as it allows both the CPU and Graphics to run side by side without one of them affecting the other. The result of this is that it will reduce lag that some users may experience when performing multiple tasks at the same time. The new interface will support up to 60 frames per second and all graphics delivered by the software will go through a triple buffer system to ensure that users really do receive the ultimate user experience.
The new Jelly Bean Update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 will also ensure that a number of new features will be implemented on the model. One of the most impressive new additions is the offline voice typing mode which will allow text messages and e mails to be dictated to the phone, even with no data connection present. Because the phone is doing the work and not the internet the response speeds are much faster than other software that relies on the internet. Having said that there is also a new version of the Google Voice Search feature which does rely on a data connection but this will offer enhanced results over previous versions of the software. The S3 will be able to play back a much wider range of audio and video files thanks to improved codec support which will delight multi media fans. Camera users will also benefit as the model will offer easier photo organisation and more in the way of editing features. Android software has always made good use of the notifications bar on the phone for performing a variety of tasks and checking alerts and now user will be able to perform more functions than ever before from this area of the phone. Text messages can be replied to and missed call phoned back without need to access other areas of the software.
The news of a Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 will delight users of this fantastic model. The new software will not only deliver more in the way of features but also improved performance thanks to new additions such as Project Butter.
