Samsung announced some time back that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S III and S II are in the pipeline and it’ll be released pretty soon. The expected release date for this update was being considered to be the 29th of this month but this was not going to stop all the ‘leaky’ developers out there who love to publish ‘pre-release’ versions.
The good news for the Android fans and particularly for the Samsung Galaxy S III users is that Sam Mobile has leaked a pre-built firmware based on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the S III. The even better news is that the pre-release update is compatible with all the Samsung Galaxy S III GT-I9300 version irrespective of which firmware or carrier they are on.
The news of the leaked Android 4.1 Jelly bean update for Galaxy S III came through one of the members of the XDA-developers. Android 4.1 gets your device moving again. The ‘buttery’ software by Samsung is the latest update and was released originally for only Galaxy Nexus and some other devices and tablets. While Samsung did announce the incoming release of Jelly Bean for S II and S III, things seemed to be on the hold and fans were getting frustrated.
Finally, the wait is over for those who are willing to risk their devices with the test Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. If you ask me I would suggest give your nerves a bit more rest as the official update is round the corner but if you are way anxious to get moving with Jelly Bean.
