The browser is said to be smoother than before, the status bar has been changed from grey to black, there is a new ink effect on the lockscreen along with a new group cast application, and various bug fixes.

The update brings many new features and bug fixes. It is available through Samsung KIES and OTA (over-the-air) as well.

Samsung also released a status page for this Android 4.1.2 roll out, which shows what countries it is currently available in.
