If you’ve signed up with network operator Three for a Samsung Galaxy S3, we have good news for you. Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) has just rolled out to the Korean tech giant’s flagship sold by Three. The network confirmed that the S3 would be getting the latest version of Android on its Twitter account.
Unfortunately, only S3 owners who got their hands on the smartphone via Three will be getting the update. For those who have purchased an unlocked S3, regardless of whether you use a Three SIM or not, you’re going to have to wait a little longer for Samsung to roll out the update.
Sadly, neither Samsung nor other network operators have announced when they will be rolling out Jelly Bean for the Galaxy S3. However, since Samsung did say that it would be rolling out Jelly Bean to the successor of the S2 this October, we’re sure you won’t have to wait very long for the update to be pushed out to your S3.
If you’re with Three and you’re looking to download the Jelly Bean update for your S3, make sure you’re downloading the update via a Wi-Fi network since it is a huge file. In addition, make sure your phone is fully charged. After making sure you’re connected via Wi-Fi and that your phone is fully charged, go to ‘Settings’, then go to ‘About device’, and then hit ‘Software update’. This will allow you to download and install the update.
We haven’t heard from other networks when they plan to roll out Jelly Bean for their customers who own galaxy S3s. Once they start pushing out the update or release announcements, we’ll be sure to let you know.
