Various Canadian carriers recently started rolling out Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean to their Samsung Galaxy S3 and now WIND Mobile has also joined the bandwagon.
"An update has been pushed through to Samsung Galaxy S3 users (I747) OTA and Kies - so far we've heard it's available to Rogers, Bell, MTS, Koodo, Fido and TELUS users. This update brings it to OS 4.1.2, version MVLDMF1. A number of readers have noted improvements to the gallery, multi-window feature," MobileSyrup previously reported.
The WIND Mobile Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update brings along several new additions, mainly Premium Suites features. The Samsung Galaxy S3 comes packed with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) and users of the handset have been eagerly awaiting to get a taste of Jelly Bean.
The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean software update brings a number of notable enhancements and new features to the Galaxy S3. The software update brings the highly-touted Multi-Window View feature, which allows users to simultaneously open and use two applications side by side. The Multi-Window View feature is also available in the Galaxy Note 2 and the recently launched Galaxy S4.
Following the software update, Galaxy S3 users will also get the Best Shot feature, which picks the best group picture from five burst shots. The firmware update further brings Page Buddy, which gives pop-up suggestion when users connect their Galaxy S3 to a headphone or wireless speaker.
Other new features with the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update include Project Butter and better hotspot functionality. After updating, users will be able to access the home screen without unlocking the smartphone when a Bluetooth headset is connected, enjoy Auto Share Shot in S Beam, use Samsung Smart Switch support to aid file transfer and more.
Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is already on its way to various smartphones and rumors also suggest that Android 4.3 Jelly Bean has been spotted running on the Google edition of the Galaxy S4. We don't know if and when Galaxy S3 will get Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean or higher, but for now Galaxy S3 users in Canada will have to settle for the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update.
