Samsung has announced that its flagship Galaxy S3 smartphone will receive the company's Premium Suite upgrade pack.

- Page Buddy
- Contexual Menu
- Contexual Tag
- Multi Window
- Auto Share Shot Paring using NFC
- Reader Mode
- Facebook Lock Ticker
A release date has yet to be confirmed by Samsung, but it did say "availability and timing" of the update will "vary depending on country and mobile carrier."
