Verizon Samsung Galaxy S III Amber Brown SGH-I535

Heads up, Verizon Galaxy S III owners, because there's a big update that'll soon be coming your way. Verizon today revealed a new update for its flavor of the Samsung Galaxy S III that weighs in at 129.1MB and will bump the device up to software version JZO54K.I535VRBMD3. The update is chock full of new feature goodness, packing in things like Multi-Window support, the ability to sync two devices and share content using S Beam Auto Share Shot and the Best Shot camera mode. Also included are a handful of bug fixes and a couple of preloaded apps.

Verizon hasn't issued a formal announcement for this update yet, so it's not yet clear exactly when it'll begin rolling out. This definitely looks like a meaty bundle of software, though, and all of the new features and fixes may even help Galaxy S III owners feel a little less jealous of their Galaxy S 4-toting friends. Stay tuned and I'll give you a shout once the update has started going out to users. Until then, you can find its full changelog below.
