Jelly Bean coming to Galaxy SIII on Verizon
Looks like Verizon is going to be one of the first to open the gates to Jelly Bean for the Samsung Galaxy SIII. Starting today, December 14, Galaxy SIII owners will be able to upgrade to what most of the international Galaxy mobile phones have already been enjoying, Android 4.1. This will bring the most anticipated feature to the Galaxy SIII, "Google Now". The roll out will be in phases for Verizon customers but you an hit up your settings menu and have it look for the update.
Part of the new update will also bring the Samsung Galaxy SIII to be Global Ready. This will be great for those that travel abroad or travel on business.
This update will bring many new features and improved performance to the Galaxy SIII and will be a must for those that own the Galaxy SIII to download and enjoy Jelly Bean features. Part of the update will be Google Now, enhanced camera features and a new notification panel. I have been running Jelly Bean on my current Galaxy Note II and using Google Now which has been great to use! By holding the menu button on the phone, you will be able to access Google Now for quick searches or look up weather, etc...
The camera new features will include new filters to give your photos you have taken some nice effects. Some of the filters included black and white, cold vintage and sepia. Also you will be able to pause video recordings and resume as if you have taken the video in one recording.
Those on AT&T, looks like you will have to wait just a bit longer. Rumor has it AT&T will be pushing the Jelly Bean update for its customers sometime in January.
