T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S III starts receiving Android 4.1.2 update with multi-window feature
posted by Victor H. / May 13, 2013, 9:30 AM
T-Mobile is yet to update its support page for this particular update and device, but the first people receiving it have said they are noticing two new apps: Paper Artist and Group Play. The handset also shows the new T-Mobile “4G” logo.
You should definitely update over Wi-Fi, though, as the update comes at the pretty hefty 187MB. The first notifications have already started flying in, so make sure to double-check your device to see if the update is already there.
- Display 4.8" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.9 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus, Dual-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2100 mAh(10.00h talk time)

The S3 already had 4.1.2. This just adds more things to it.

The new 4G Logo means this is an update to enable LTE?

My phone downloaded it automatically while I was asleep and on 4G. Wasted 200MB out of my 500MB high speed data. Great.

I haven't gotten it yet, but I probably wouldn't use the new features it brought anyways. I don't see use in multi window on a screen smaller than that of the Note series. I wouldn't use Paper Artist much, as for Group Play, unless it would work on devices a cross carriers I wouldn't use it, I only know 2 other people with a GS3, one on AT&T and the other Verizon.

Really? About 60% of the people I know have a S3 and 30% have an iPhone 5 or 4S.
