  • Compatibility with Galaxy Gear
  • S Pen enhancements
  • Improved performance (Graphics, Multimedia, Bluetooth, etc)
  • Improved the user interface and stability
  • User interface adjustment (Icon change, etc)
  • Security Enhancements

Check your GS3 or Note 2 and let us know if you’ve received it.
