The U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy S III already received an update to disable local search — in order to avoid future possible Apple litigation — and now it is time for the international/unlocked variant of the phone to get a “stability update” which seems to kill the feature.

While our international Galaxy S III didn’t receive the notification yet (and KIES reports that everything is up to date), reports talk about a specific XXBLG6 build which is being pushed and labeled as a “stability update”. In reality, it appears to remove the ability to do local searches for contact and such). The date is July 20 (weighing 27MB) on the refresh and it also appears to bring a new baseband: XXLG6. If you’ve got the update, shoot us a comment below!
