Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update confirmed by Samsung for October

Next month will see the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone featuring the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.

Which was about time. Too many smartphones released recently are still using the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS version. Which may be good, but not as good as the Jelly Bean one. But since October is still 2 weeks away, many Galaxy S3 owners will want it faster. Fear not: this phone will arrive as a 4G version which will use the Android 4.1.

People over at Everything Everywhere were the first to announce that this smartphone would be going to make an appearance as a 4G version in the UK while also sport the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. That is great news for UK smartphone users who are on a 4G network with their Galaxy S3. Because this means that they will be offered all sorts of pros that come with such a network. Which means data that is characterized by high-speed. In other words: no more long waiting hours to look for something online, read content, download stuff and so on. This offer is available in a total of 16 cities in the UK. So you will be able to play with what the Jelly Bean has to offer only in those cities.Galaxy-S3-Jelly-Bean-update

However, it may happen that this release may encounter issues with the networks. That is why specialists announced that they are going to go through some tests before release time of this update. What does that mean for the owner of a Galaxy S3 4G? A delayed upgrade to the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean if your phone is locked. Or you can perform the update. But Samsung will let everyone know that before.

Even if the upgrade will be launched next month, the manufacturer did not offer yet a specific date. But as usual, the owners of models that are SIM-free are the ones to enjoy the benefits before everybody else. And that translates into Google Now and every kind of offering that the Android 4.1 has in store for consumers.

Speaking of which, people who had the chance to play around with the Android 4.0 on their Galaxy S2 phones were the ones using the T-Mobile and the Orange networks. So it’s completely ironic that the same people will not be able to get the Jelly Bean first. But alas, that is the way network carriers, manufacturers and so on think nowadays.

As for us, we are eagerly anticipating the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update in October.
