Samsung Not Playing, Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean Update Arrived With Note 2 At IFA After All

By  | 

Anyone waiting for the Jelly Bean update to the Samsung Galaxy S3 will find this news interesting as it did make an official appearance alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 at IFA in Berlin. The Samsung Galaxy S3 with Jelly Bean was seen in a booth of Vodafone at the IFA, which means that it should already be bug-free and not too far away from being released to the general public.

Engadget said that there wasn’t a lot of difference between handsets running ICS and Jelly Bean, despite Project Butter. This of course is the third Samsung device we saw with Jelly Bean, counting the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which was at the event and of course the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 has been one of the must have Android devices so far this year and the update to Jelly Bean brings many new features. Users will be able to enjoy improvements to notifications. When an email or text message appears users can drag it open to preview the contents. This means you no longer have to open the email app to read the message.

Google Now is another feature which provides users with information based on where they are, allowing them to keep up to date with weather and sports scores for instance.
