It looks like December has a lot of surprises for all the android lovers. After keeping their customers waiting for months, AT&T has finally started rolling out android 4.1.1 jelly bean update for their Samsung Galaxy S3 devices. T-Mobile and Sprint have already offered their customers 4.1.1 update weeks back.
Those with AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3 can receive their update by connecting their device to their system, loading Samsung Kies and then completing the process. At the moment, the company has not made it clear whether the update will be available over the air or not and if yes, by when it would be available. It’s been a very long since when Samsung has actually pushed an upgrade through Kies instead of OTA forcing the owners to use it. The update file sizes 738 MB which is a little bigger compared to the updates from other carriers.
The new update will definitely introduce the usual expected features incorporated in jelly bean but AT&T hasn’t made it clear what else it has in its kitty. Some of the exciting features include availability of larger widgets making it easy for the people trying smartphones for the very first time. Apart from that, one is also now capable of blocking their incoming calls, notifications, LED indicator and alarm for a desired period. NFC support, Swipe keyboard, Google Now, AllShare Cast Wireless Hub support also makes the update alluring.
The new update also add new features to your camera that includes low light mode using HDR, a number of new filters like sepia, black and white, warm vintage, cold vintage, highlights etc. One can now, pause their recordings and resume from the same point.
One may argue that this update is a little outdated because the world has already moved to android version 4.2 but then one can be happy that one at least get a chance to use jelly bean. As far as the owners of Verizon S3 are concerned they will have to wait a little longer since there have been no announcement made by the company about its availability.
