The jar has been opened and the jelly beans are spreading! I don’t really know if that makes a whole lot of sense, but I guess what I’m trying to say is that since Samsung has entered phase 2 of deploying the Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update, more and more regions and S3 units are now getting their fair share of Jelly Bean.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean (Android 4.1)
With that in mind, if you happen to own Samsung’s flagship smartphone (excluding the 5.5 inch phablet) then join us after the break and we’ll get to talk more about where the new update has recently popped-up.
After the Korean manufacturer has launched the latest update in multiple regions of Asia and Europe, the British carrier Three has taken SGS3 owners by surprise as it managed to launch Android 4.1 on its subsidized Galaxy S3s before the unlocked model had a chance to receive it (O2 and Vodafone UK then followed suit).
Now it seems that the highly-anticipated update has been made available on the unbranded SGS3 units in Germany and France, with the French operator Bouygues joining the party as well. All in all, things are looking good for Galaxy S3 owners all around the world, and if you reside in one of the aforementioned countries you may want to check for updates, or try your luck via the Samsung Kies Software.
As for the availability of Android 4.1 on the US Samsung Galaxy S3 models, the situation doesn’t seem to be as good, but perhaps Sprint will indeed deliver the update sooner rather than later, and the other carriers will follow.
Either way, we’ll keep you in the loop so stick around for more.
Thanks Android Police for the heads-up regarding the Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update.
