A pre-release version of the hotly anticipated Android 4.2.2 update for the Samsung Galaxy S III has surfaced, showing us what to expect when the latest Android version hits the 2012 Samsung flagship. Even better, the ROM is available for download, so the most impatient Galaxy S III owners needn't wait any more to experience the latest and greatest from Google.

So far, the confirmed updates include a new lockscreen as well as new screen modes, the latter allowing you to tune the saturation and color accuracy of your Samsung Galaxy S III better. Daydream, driving mode and actionable notifications are also now available to the former Samsung flagship. The list of updates continues with updated S Voice, which is now integrated with more apps and supports more commands.

The guys from Sammobile, who were able to get their hands on the pre-release ROM created a brief video to show us the Android 4.2-powered Samsung Galaxy S III in action. Check it out.

If you are interested in trying the leaked ROM you can follow the source link to download the required files and see the tutorial for installation. Naturally, flashing a release not meant for public usage will void your warranty so only proceed if you know what you are doing. Also, keep in mind that this not being a final ROM, some bugs are to be expected.
