Samsung Galaxy S III Get Its First Software Update – Improves RAM Management, Updates Kernel and More!

Samsung has started rolling out a new software update for its recently released flagship handset, the Galaxy S III. The new update bumps the firmware version to LF2, but does not bring any major or noticeable changes along with it.

The official change-log from Samsung only states that the update brings about some stability and performance improvements. Users who have already got the update are reporting that the OTA update also includes a new updated kernel. The update also fixes the slow response time of the Home button, making it much more usable.

The update is around 9MB in size, and also improves the RAM management and the Cell standby battery drain issue as reported by many Galaxy S III owners over at XDA.

At the moment, the update is being rolled out only to the unlocked/unbranded variants of the Galaxy S III in United Kingdom. Galaxy S III owners can update their handset either via OTA or by using Samsung’s KIES software.
