Android 4.1.2 starts to roll out for the GT-i9300

Starting with unbranded Samsung Galaxy S III units in Poland and then working through other countries, Samsung has started pushing through the next OS update for its flagship model. No, it is not Android 4.2, but is Android 4.1.2 which includes a number of cool features like Multi-Window, the same Gallery app as on the Samsung GALAXY Note II, Smart Rotation, a customized notification panel, Paper Artist and Group Cast apps and SwiftKey Flow to name a few. The update is rolling out in phases, so if it hasn't hit your country or carrier yet, there is no need to jump. The update, a version of which was leaked a couple of weeks ago, will be available via OTA or Kies.

Meanwhile, Verizon customers are the only ones left belonging to the major four U.S. carriers, that have yet to update their handsets to Android 4.1.1 by either OTA or Kies. Verizon customers are now two updates behind those with the GT-i9300 getting updated overseas. AT&T customers just received their update, but it must be installed manually using Kies. Samsung Galaxy S III users on Sprint were the first in the U.S. to receive the new OS build followed by T-Mobile. Those two updates were done OTA.

Shocking that Verizon would be the last! Lets hope they release it before the end of the month.

Verizon has the best coverage in the states but hates updating their phones, thats why I chose Att&t and I like HSPA over CDMA any day not to mention the rest of the world is on HSPA

I was already running the leaked FW but just flashed this official one and so far so damn good :)

Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note2 at this point are the best smartphones at multitasking thanks to multi-view, i can now have a document editor and web browser in the same screen like on a PC. :)
