Samsung Galaxy S3 Android 4.2 Update

Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S3 have had superb news about the update to Jelly Bean 4.2. Screenshots have been posted of the handset running the updated OS and this shows that it does exists and that it will be rolled out for the international version of the device.
If this happens to be the real thing then owners of the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be treated to the new features such as Smart Scroll. Owners will be able to scroll through pages on their device just by using their eyes. This was one of the biggest selling points of the Samsung Galaxy S4 when it was revealed.
We thought that the screen shot was of the new device, but then found out that it was its predecessor, this was shown in the About screen.
Smart Pause will also feature on the device and this allows users to pause the video by looking away from the display. The feature makes use of the front camera of the handset.
It is thought that Smart Scroll may only work with certain apps as we can see this on the screenshot, which shows the control screen. This is where the user can set up the apps to use with the software.
Samsung Galaxy S3 owners will welcome the handset, there has also been news that Sprint will get a new colour, purple.
