Samsung Galaxy S3 owners across the world have been waiting for the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for a long time. And the wait has become really painful since the launch of Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone that was launched running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
However, there is some good news for the Galaxy S3 owners that the thing they were waiting for so long, has finally come out and is available for download.
The Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 has been leaked and the available firmware is not fully developed. According to SamMobile, the 'leaked' firmware has been checked completely and works completely fine as any other official firmware.
However, this new firmware has arrived, leaving behind some updates such as Modem. As the firmware has been re-packaged from dumped files, the Modem you will be using will be the earlier one only.
The new firmware comes with some Galaxy S4 features but it is not known whether the camera features of the Galaxy S4 have been included in the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S3, or not.
