And now Samsung has released a video that showcases some of the features in this Premium Suite upgrade. It’s a multi-part series of videos and the first of the lot has been uploaded on YouTube.
Among the galaxy s3 premium suite upgrade features demonstrated in the video are the Page Buddy feature, which opens a new homescreen with the respective widgets when you connect an accessory, contextual image tagging, multi-view app mode, auto share shot, reader mode and Facebook lock ticker. And this is just part 1 of the series, so there’s going to be lot more to come.

Galaxy S3 Premium Suite upgrade Video 2
One of the new features in galaxy s3 premium suite upgrade is the Paper Artist app, which is now built-into the software. Another new feature is the low light mode in the camera, something that I really liked on the Galaxy Note II. This takes multiple shots and combines them to form a bright, noise-free image in low light situations and the results are often fantastic. Then there is a Best Face mode, which takes multiple shots of people and then lets you choose the perfect facial expression from among the shots taken. Other than that there is the new Easy Mode for the homescreen and several accessibility features for the disabled.
The galaxy s3 premium suite upgrade started rolling out in certain areas so it’s only a matter of time before it is available to everyone.
