As we get close to the official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S3 – scheduled for May 3 in London at the Samsung Unpacked event – it looks like not a day goes by without…
Only yesterday, wickedly skilled developer Chainfire rooted the S3 before it is released. Today, the Samsung obsessed boys over at SamMobile received a leaked ROM containing all the goodies packed into the upcoming Galaxy S3. Yes, you read it right, a full Android 4.0.4 ROM with the latest iteration of TouchWiz featured on the Galaxy S3 is here!
So, if you’re looking for a way to test or simply use the S3′s TouchWiz interface even before the device itself is released, this is your chance.
Note: this ROM will only work if your device has Android 4.0 ICS, initial reports say
The leaked ROM of the Galaxy S3 that has trickled its way onto XDA’s forum gives you the experience of having Samsung’s latest flagship phone in your hand – way earlier than those 9 million (possibly more now) people who have pre-ordered the much anticipated Android device.
S-Voice, Smart Stay and Pop Up Play are only some of the pretty amazing features of the S III. S-Voice is a Siri-style virtual assistant on your Android phone. With your voice, you can control your device by saying commands like launching the camera, controlling songs, adjusting volumes and you can even yell ‘snooze’ to your S III’s alarm if you want it to go away for a while.
Other features baked into the latest version of TouchWiz is ‘Pop Up Play’, which is a brand new feature from Samsung. It lets you watch HD videos while checking your email or simply chatting with your friends via SMS.
So, if you’re feeling adventurous, and want to grab a taste of the Galaxy S3′s full ROM, you can download the ridiculously large file (768MB) here. But, if you’re only looking for the APK of the S-Voice feature, you can download it below. Initial reports are indicating that Samsung’s cloud is quite selective, and will only work with Samsung devices. Still – worth a try though! Let us know how it goes. We’ve got the downloads coming in one of our team members Galaxy Nexus, so stay tuned for the full ROM review soon!
S Voice APK
It’s great to see the S3′s features leaked to other Android smartphone with this leaked ROM. The Galaxy Unpacked event in London marked Samsung’s first foray into focusing on the more human elements of technology. Most of their announcements have been full on spec hype-fests, but this time around, it was different.
Soon though friend soon – we will have a Galaxy S3 of our own to play with and love, but for now, this ROM is just an appetizer to the feast that is to come in 10 days from now!
Are you going to be giving the S3 ROM a try? How about S Voice? Let us know down below!
