The upcoming Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S III comes with extra surprises. It is reported that the new update will bring the welcomed Multi-View feature that offers split-screen functionality which was first introduced on the Samsung Galaxy Note II.
This was spotted on the Japan version of Galaxy S III α which runs on the latest OS version. According to Sammobile, multi-view will be available with Android 4.1.2 update but so far no availability dates for Malaysian units. Once this is available, it will definitely boost multi-tasking and make full use of the Galaxy S III’s 4.8″ display.

The Samsung Galaxy S III might have a funny “designed for humans” tagline but Samsung insists that there’s a lot of thought process involved when designing its current flagship smart phone. They have just released a design story video which explain its key inspirations behind the design and how they integrated nature elements on the Galaxy S III.
It shares how they got inspiration of creating a natural curved body where the back cover mimics a pebble with water flowing over it.
