Canada is clearly the best country that borders the US to the north, and it got a little bit better for GS3 owners today. It seems Canadian Galaxy S3s have started receiving updates that bring the fabled Multi-Window mode, among other things.


The update to Android 4.1.2 has version MVLDMF1 and is coming to users via OTA and Samsung Kies. The carriers haven't offered official information, but the update is reported to make the following tweaks:

  • Improved download speeds when HSPA+ network coverage.
  • Proactively addresses instances where third party VoIP apps could interfere when dialing E911
  • Multi-Window Support
  • Gallery has been updated
  • Improvement in the Camera app

Firmware downloads are starting to pop up online for Telus, Bell, Rogers, MTS, Koodo, Fido, and SaskTel. Folks on the Rogers community forums are also confirming the update. Unbranded GS3s in the great white north look to be getting the update as well. Additionally, a reader reached out to let us know his Bell GS3 has received the update, so consider that confirmed. Hold on to that GS3 a little longer, my Canadian friends. Things are happening.
