Finally, Canadians that own a Galaxy S3 device have something to be happy about. Samsung finally decided to release the Android 4.1.2 update. This comes with lots of goodies, such as Multi Window, a feature that we were able to see almost a year ago with the Note 2, and of course many other features. What we know by now that the update brings new to the Galaxy S3 are the following: download speeds on the HSPA+ have improved. Multi Window support was introduced, new Gallery and Camera app. You can find the update on Samsung Kies but it should also pop up on the screen as an OTA update. We know about carriers such as Telus, Rogers, MTS, Bell, Fido, Koodo and SaskTel that have pushed the update. It's a good thing that Canada finally got in line with the rest of the world with the Galaxy S3. We are already expecting the 4.2.2 update, but knowing it took them so long to push this one, who knows how much we'll have to wait for the next one.
