Looks like Samsung didnt want to be caught up in the discussion of whether they are prompt in getting updates for their devices. Looks like they learnt and are on their way to delivering on their promise of getting Android Jelly Bean for the 2012 flagship device quite early. Users in Europe are now able to get the newest Android version from Google via KIES or over the air (OTA) naturally depending on location. Users in Poland and Romania have already started receiving notifications to update ROMs with these codes:
I9300BVBLH2/I9300OROBLI1 for Romania on the Orange network and I9300XXDLIB/I9300OXFDLI1 in Poland for the unlocked version.
- Features that come with the update include:
- Enhanced performance with a smoother and faster feel
- Settings Menu reorganized
- Google Now feature
- A different Notifications bar
- Two modes for Homescreen
- Resizable Pop-up play(means you can now stretch that floating video)
Usually one gets updates in the phone notifications, so once you get that, which might require a restart for some phones to be realized, you will require to have atleast 50% charge on the phone and a stable Wi-Fi connection for the upgrade process to be smooth. Be sure to tell us if and when you do receive the update, and how you feel about it.
