Handsets that have been updated to the latest version of Jelly Bean will have features that were seen first on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 as well. These include a multi-view function which allows users to have two apps open at once in separate windows and which gives multi-tasking a whole new meaning.

Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S3 will also be able to access Page Buddy, this consists of home screen panes that can be called upon when needed. An example of this is that an option menu would pop up providing quick links to media players on the connection of a headset.

Other features to come to the Samsung Galaxy S3 alongside Jelly Bean include an updated gallery app, notification panel that can be customised and a keyboard that has swipe input and smart rotation.

Poland is said to be receiving the latest Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update OTA, while it is thought that other countries in Europe will get the update at some point in the near future.
