Speaking to CNET UK, Samsung confirmed that the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) update for the Galaxy S3 would be rolling out to all networks “over the coming weeks”.
In a statement, the Korean tech giant said, “Samsung UK can confirm that the roll out of Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) has begun for our Galaxy S3 customers,” which is news all Galaxy S3 owners have been waiting to hear for quite some time now.
The Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S3 has now started to roll out for customers on Three, which makes it the first UK network operator to push out the update for their S3 customers.
If you’re with another phone network other than Three, you may have wait a little longer, but don’t expect too long for Jelly Bean to roll out to your S3. After all, Samsung did say that it would be pushing out the update to other networks in the coming weeks. So keep it here for further updates.
If you’ve signed up with Three for the successor of the Galaxy S2, here’s how you can get the update. First of all, make sure you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network and your batteries are fully charged. Connecting via 3G will just eat up your monthly data allotment since the file is huge. Furthermore, installing the update with not enough charge will make you do the update process all over again. One you’re all set up, hit ‘Settings’, then ‘About Device’, and then hit ‘Software Update’. This will allow you to see if the update is available for your smartphone.
