Samsung Galaxy S III users have been waiting patiently for Jelly Bean updates depending on the carrier you may have the update or waiting for the update. I know Verizon owners are still waiting for their update, the wait it over, the company has released the date for the latest upgraded Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. The software upgrade, which will be pushed to customers in phases starting Dec. 14, also makes the smartphone Global Ready. Customers who would like to manually download the upgrade through the settings menu will be able to within the next week.
Jelly Bean includes enhancements and new features like Google Now, which can be accessed by holding down on the home button, and a new notification panel that displays missed calls and emails, allowing customers return the call or email right from the notification.
Customers will also notice enhanced camera capabilities. The camera now includes, new live camera filters to add an artistic flair to their pictures. Users can choose filters such as warm vintage, cold vintage, black and white, sepia, color highlights (blue, green, red/yellow). Another new camera feature allows users to pause and resume while recording video so they can record it all in one take.
Additionally, the new software will make the Samsung Galaxy S III the next ISIS-ready smartphone. Austin, Texas, and Salt Lake City are the first cities to take advantage of ISIS and customers in those areas will be able to turn their phones into mobile wallets to make payments wirelessly at various retailers.
I know Verizon customers are finally relieved they have a date for the upgrade.
