We have some excellent news for the millions and millions of Galaxy S III owners here in the US. It looks like Samsung’s extremely popular and powerful Galaxy S III smartphone could actually start seeing the update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean starting tomorrow. While this is doubtful, a few leaks from the Now Network have reportedly confirmed the rollout.
According to some leaked internal screenshots from the Now Network, the Galaxy S III is set to start receiving the update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as of tomorrow the 25th, and roll out from there. The folks from Phandroid received a screenshot confirming the update, so now it’s only a matter of time.
Earlier this month Samsung confirmed (again) that the US version of their Galaxy S III would see the update “in the coming months” but wasn’t to specific. We’ve heard that before, and hopefully this is the real deal. Get ready to enjoy that Project Butter and Google Now guys.
The leaked document indeed reveals the Galaxy S III will start getting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as of tomorrow, and will reach all device owners within one week. Users can also expect bug fixes, and 4G LTE improvements for said device. This is only one carrier out of many, but it’s safe to say T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon and the rest should be rolling out the update in a similar fashion, and soon. Stay tuned for more details folks!
