About calendar closely maintains know: it’s October – the month when the Samsung Galaxy S3 will update to Android 4.1 Jellybean, the latest version of the Android operating system. And so we already peaking around the corner, how’s it going?

Almost two weeks ago came the news that Samsung already rolling out the update was started in a number of Eastern European countries. This was in fact a dress rehearsal – an update to roll out in a number of markets, let’s say, not directly of primary importance, carries a manufacturer basically just a big test. This test seems to have been satisfactorily completed. The result: from 9 October the real update process starts with the top of the list South Korea – Samsung’s homeland. When Netherlands turn will we notice only when the time is up.

In any case, we look forward to some nice novelties that the update reportedly will bring, such as a flexible deal with its entirely new way Android 4.1 on the screen brings (‘Butter Project “). Also get the Galaxy S3 ‘Smart Rotation’ – a function that adjusts the screen orientation to the state of your face. Pop-Up Play gets a window whose size is customizable, and where you can pause the video. Also record video with the camera, you will soon pause. And who the TouchWiz / Nature UX interface sometimes a bit complicated, will soon also include a so-called ‘Easy Mode’.

Furthermore, new features like Google Now also present, as well as a new extensive ‘Help’ application. And last but certainly not least, we are very nice improvements in the battery life of the Galaxy S3.
So. And now we are silent about the update until it actually happens.
