Samsung has already told us to expect the update to Jelly Bean to take place over the coming months, but subscribers on UK’s Three network are receiving a very early Christmas present. Users are reporting that the carrier is now pushing out an update to Android 4.1.1, making it the first carrier-branded device to receive the highly anticipated firmware upgrade.

If you haven’t already been prompted for the update, you can head into settings > about phone > system updates to check for it manually. The file measures a whopping 286MB, so unless you’ve got loads of data you’ll want to connect to your local WI-Fi network. After you’ve completed the upgrade, be sure to let us know how the new software fares in the comments below.
