Samsung is slowly rolling out a software update for the Galaxy S3.
Forum posters over at XDA Developers reported today they’ve started receiving an update to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). Based on the posts, it sounds as if that the replace is slowly making its approach across Europe.
If Jelly Bean is, in fact, coming to the Galaxy S3, it’s a bit ahead of schedule. Earlier this month, Samsung confirmed to CNET UK that the device would get Jelly Bean as early as October. The corporate didn’t say while the device could be rolled out to united states-based homeowners.
Samsung’s Galaxy S3 is widely viewed as one of the top Android-based smartphones on the market. The device boasts a dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera, and shipped with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). A big draw for consumers is its massive, 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display.
The Galaxy S3 has found itself within the highlight in recent years as the iPhone 5’s leader competitor. After Apple’s handset used to be announced earlier this month, Samsung launched an ad describing all of the options that its flagship handset has that Apple’s selection doesn’t. As one might be expecting, a debate briefly erupted with Samsung and Apple lovers keeping fierce battles in forums and comments around the internet.
