Samsung Galaxy S III Ready to Get Multi Windows Mode With Android 4.1.2 Update
One of the most appreciated feature on Samsung Galaxy Note II is the multi window mode, a innovative multitasking method that involves a special task bar and dividing the screen into two sections. When they saw this feature, Galaxy S III owners instantly started craving it and now they’ll get it.
The multi window mode will come to the Galaxy S III with the Android 4.1.2 update and the images confirm it. The idea is to run two apps at the same time on the same screen and we certainly have the diagonal to do it, on the 4.8 inch screen of the S III. You can watch a video on YouTube in the upper screen area, for example and write an email in the lower area, for example.
I’m not sure how efficient this idea is, applied to a screen that’s 0.7 inches smaller than the one of the Galaxy Note II. The leaked screenshots from here come from a trial update to the Galaxy S III on an Israeli carrier. The split screen mode is coming to the gallery as well, with the albums/folders on the left and the content on the right. The update is coming before the year end, according to insiders.
