On the heels of rolling out the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the international version of its Galaxy S3 smartphone, Samsung has added a number of other improvements to the device. The company has named the improvements, all having to do with the new features and the app inside TouchWiz, the 'Premium Suit upgrade' for Galaxy S3.
In a bid to show off the new features included in the Premium Suit upgrade, the South Korean tech giant Thursday posted the first video (part one) of a series of demo videos highlighting the enhancements making their way to Galaxy S3.
As noted by Android Central, the Premium Suit upgrade is a blend of stuff from two other popular devices from Samsung – the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy Note 10.1.
Here’s what the upgrade has to offer:
Page Buddy: Your phone will smartly predict what you intend to do according to your actions. For example, when you plug in your earphones, the device automatically opens up a page with the music player.
Contextual Menu: When you list up apps, you can now choose to see the most frequently used ones first. It is especially convenient when you’re looking through apps to find files to attach.
Contextual Tag: When you take a picture on the phone, you can tag the weather, date and place immediately.
Multi Window: You can open two different apps at the same time into two different windows on the mobile screen.
Auto Share Shot Pairing using NFC: By setting the camera to the Auto Share Shot mode, you can quickly share your photos and videos by simply tapping their GALAXY S III with other NFC and S-Beam enabled devices
Reader Mode: You can easily control the size of the text on your browser. Also, you can just click the webpage to share it.
Facebook Lock Ticker: The easiest way to see your Facebook News Feeds – set your phone to show it on your lock screen.
According to Samsung, the availability and timing of the Premium Suit for the Galaxy S3 will vary depending on the country and mobile carriers.
