Samsung Galaxy SIII Getting Android Jelly Bean In 4th Quarter ?

 

Samsung Galaxy SIII

The Samsung Galaxy SIII launched on Android Ice Cream Sandwich at a time when Android Jelly Bean was just about to make its debut. However, the good news for those who've bought Samsung's smartphone is that Samsung have already confirmed it'll be upgraded to the latest version of Android.

 

New information , posted over at SamMobile, suggests that the Galaxy SIII will be upgraded to Android 4.1 at the end of the 3rd quarter of 2012 or the start of the 4th quarter. That means we can expect the update to hit in either September or October.

 

As always with these Android updates you'll have to wait till your operator issues the update if you have a monthly contract. 3G widely expects the UK operators to take a couple of weeks to release the update so we think it'll be available in October at the earliest.

 

The update to Android Jelly Bean will bring a number of new features and improvements to the already amazing smartphone. That includes Google Now which is Google's answer to Apple's voice assistant software Siri , as well a notification bar which includes support for actions.
