Sprint is the first U.S. carrier to deliver an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S3. Available starting this morning as an over-the-air update, the handset will benefit from features such as Google Now, enhanced and expanded notifications, and Android Beam.
Samsung has taken steps to enrich the user experience on its end, giving little extra touches to the camera aspect. Once users download the Jelly Bean update they will discover new live filters for still images and video as well as the power to pause and resume while recording.
What's more, the Galaxy S3 will pick up a new Easy Mode that will help new smartphone users learn their way around the handset. Rounding things out, the version 4.1 update adds additional support for accessories with NFC One Touch Pairing for Bluetooth devices and wireless mirroring through AllShare.
Sprint advises that the Samsung Galaxy S3 will automatically download the Jelly Bean update, prompting users once it's ready to install.
