T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3

The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 is getting updated to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, with users already downloading the update as we speak.

The good news has been reported by Tmo News, with users on the XDA-Developers forums confirming it. The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 had received its updated to Jelly Bean 4.1.1 in November last year.

The new update is coming over the air, and it’s a rather large one, at no less than 186.72MB. But there were also users saying that you can also get it through the Kies software if checking for the update on your phone doesn’t do the trick for you. It must be mentioned that the build number for the new update is JZO54K.T999UVDMD5.

A list of changes and details for the update has just been published on the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 support page. New features include multi-window, auto-pairing using NFC, enhanced options for the camera, Sound Balance, Samsung Gallery, Blocking Mode (a feature the Galaxy S4 has introduced, allowing you to control your communication easier), as well as the Easy Mode (which has been shown in one of the Samsung Galaxy S4 ads recently). Also included is the Paper Artist app (which has been previously part of Jelly Bean tablet updates).

Users are also mentioning Group Play as being part of the update, as well as a new T-Mobile 4G logo. The most appreciated feature seems to be the multi-window one, allowing you to run two apps on your screen, at the same time.

If you are a T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 user, have you received the update? Have you noticed any other new features? If so, make sure you let us know in a comment.
