Check Out Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Running On The Samsung Galaxy S III [Video]
On Thursday, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ROM for the Samsung Galaxy S III was leaked online, much to the delight of Galaxy S III owners the world over. If you’re understandably cautious about installing it on your new handset prior to its official launch, then check out the 10-minute video below that shows the software in action on Samsung’s flagship Android handset.
The video is in Spanish, unfortunately, so you may not be able to understand a word of it. But you don’t really need to: You can still see what Jelly Bean setup looks like on the Galaxy S III, and get a feel for how it functions without having to hear the commentator.
As you can see, it runs wonderfully on the handset’s quad-core Exynos processor. It’s super snappy, with apps and menus loading almost instantly after being tapped. It also appears to be very smooth, with no noticeable crashes or bugs.
Samsung has clearly stuck closely to its TouchWiz UI, so this may not be the Jelly Bean experience you’re used to seeing at this point. However, there are plenty of new Jelly Bean features to enjoy, baked within the OS.
Samsung hasn’t announced when Jelly Bean will rollout for the Galaxy S III, but recent rumors have claimed it will appear on August 29. But of course, if you don’t want to wait, the ROM can be found online now.
