The highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III is expected to arrive on the market at the end of the month. However, those who managed to grab one long ahead of official launch have already leaked its Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM.
The folks over at SamMobile have been given the official ROM of the smartphone, which includes all those exclusive apps and services that make the Galaxy S III a unique device. Android tech-savvy who are into creating custom ROMs rejoice as Galaxy S III's ROM is now available for download, although it requires quite a long time to acquire it due it is large size. It appears that the ROM is about 785MB in size, so make sure you have a fast Internet connection, otherwise you're in for a very long waiting time.
However, those who only want to try out the S-Voice application can download it separately, though it's Samsung's cloud compute servers are reportedly acting rather erratically and only responds to whomever it wants. Still, there seems to be a general consensus that those who own Samsung devices will not have any troubles in getting the application working. Until those in the know rip the ROM apart and post download links for more apps and services within the Galaxy S III software, everyone is free welcome to play with S-Voice. Keep in mind that some of these apps are only fully functional with Samsung devices, so those who own other branded smartphones might encounter some issues.
We're expecting that more apps will be extracted from this leaked ROM, including Smart Stay, Pop-up Play, Direct Call and other, so stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
