If you have been sitting in the wings watching the GSIII and GS4 come and go, you are probably feeling a little “left behind”. If you are still stuck in your two year contract and have fallen a bit behind the power curve of late, fear not, a refreshing new update to your old trusty handset should be just what the Doctor ordered.
Sprint announced yesterday that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is on its way! I know this has been a long wait for those of you who have had your GSII since its release in 2011, but your wait is finally over. As you probably know, and have severely drooled over time-and-time again, the new update will bring with it:
- Google Now
- Project Butter Animations
- Lock Screen Widgets
- Numerous stability and battery saving enhancements
But get this, the new update will also bring with it numerous GS3 GUI enhancements, to include Smart Stay eye tracking for keeping the phone awake, and Pop Up Play for watching videos in a window hovering over simultaneously running applications.
The Android update is currently available to download and install. Check out Samsung’s help site for more information on the update and specific installation procedures.
