Samsung, one of the most popular seller of Android Smartphone has released the source code for its latest flagship phone, Samsung Galaaxy S3 to the public. Samsung had earlier released the Galaxy S3 Phones to the market at a even in London. Samsung has released source code of 180MB for Samsung Galaxy S III phone which bears the model number GT-I9300 as well as its original source code release of a 1.2MB update to add support for GT-I9300 MEA, GT-I9300 SEA and GT-I9300 SWA models.

This move will help developers use the source code to create personalized ROMs for users without the extra apps and customization implemented by the carriers and the manufacturer. The developer teams like Cyanogen Mod will be able to create customized ROMs for its users of Samsung Galaxy S3 phones, while other developers may be able to implement features and better code to other phones increasing the performance of those phones.
Samsung will be most welcomed by the developers and the open source team for this release, and we can hope that other Android device manufacturers will also release their source code to the public as Open Source code is meant to be.
