Jelly Bean Rollout Beginning For Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S III (GT-I9300) Smartphone


Fresh off other variants getting some Jelly Bean lovin’, Sammy has begun to push the coveted Android 4.1.2 update to the international variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone. It is confirmed that the official rollout has begun worldwide, though it’s currently being pushed out in phases— so it’s unclear which GT-I9300 models will get the update first for now. The update will bring the Jelly Bean build to JZO54K and will bring the usual goodies like Google Now, Multi-View capabilities, Smart Rotation and a customizable Notification Panel among other things.

Owners of the unlocked model can check for the update through Kies Desktop software or OTA through their device’s Settings. If it’s not available don’t fret— the update will certainly be here before you know it.

    I love America, where all our Android updates are extensively delayed so our carriers can dog phone performance with their bullshit apps.

      I’m really not sure why they extensively delay updates. I’d think that carriers would want to make their customers happy, not pissed off.

    It’s great to hear that the S III is receiving Jelly Bean. I read somewhere that it would receive Android 4.2 as well, but not before the Note II unfortunately. That could be quite a few months out though.

    Again, not sure where I read it, but I definitely wouldn’t discount the thought.
