SamMobile has been known as one of the more developer and unofficial software leak-friendly tech blogs on the Internet, and the site’s video suggests that some, but not all of the Galaxy S4’s software features would make it to the S3. The Galaxy S3’s lockscreen, for one, would get additional effects, including the “J.J. Abrams effect” and a ripple effect.
Widgets can now be viewed on the lockscreen, though one may notice that’s supposed to be an Android 4.2.2 feature anyway. Several TouchWiz toggles introduced on the Galaxy S4 will make their way to the Galaxy S3, as facilitated by the device’s notification tray, which can be pulled open with two fingers.
Additionally, Samsung could have even more Galaxy S4 improvements and new features imbued in the Galaxy S3 through the upcoming Android 4.2.2 update. Some of these include enhancements to S Voice and the new driving mode, the latter of which makes it easier for users to operate their handsets while driving a vehicle.
Adapt Display and Professional Photo screen modes may make their debut, and the Gallery app is also slated to receive a white 3D background.
Unfortunately, there don’t appear to be any new or special camera features, but anything may change between now and the expected June rollout date for unlocked Galaxy S3 units. After all, we’re talking about a leaked version of Android 4.2.2, rather than official firmware.
