Samsung Galaxy S3 Android 4.2.2 update leaks [video]

A new Android iteration has leaked for the Samsung Galaxy S3, adding some neat enhancements to Samung’s last-gen flagship smartphone.

Available to download now from SamMobile, the upgrade is a test version of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. But for all that, and if the video is anything to go by, it looks pretty comprehensive to us.

Features it adds to the handset include a revamped version of the Siri-aping S Voice digital assistant-cum-voice commands app and a range of new options for the lockscreen.

A redesigned take on the menus and settings page is also ushered in, giving the Galaxy S3 a look that's closer to its current top-end smartphone, the Galaxy S4.

Samsung is apparently set to roll out the update officially in June, when it'll be available via its download solution, Kies.

We’re assuming that the very newest features of Samsung’s Nature UX that were introduced with the Galaxy S4 will be reserved solely for that kit for the foreseeable future.

However, we still wouldn’t rule out the likes of Smart Scroll (that’s the tilt to scroll function) and the eyeball tracking-enabled intelligent pause mode Smart Pause appearing on a future software bump. Possibly when the next major iteration of Android (aka Key Lime Pie) lands towards the end of the year.
