Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Update For Samsung Galaxy S3 Is Due October

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S3

The South Korea-based company have officially announced that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S3 will roll out as of October, writes CNet.

The Samsung officials have also announced that the new Samsung Galaxy S3 terminals that will be sold over the next few months will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.

Even though the South Korea-based company hasn’t revealed which variants will receive the update in October, we are anticipating that the owners of the factory unlocked Samsung Galaxy S3 will be the first to receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean firmware update.

Samsung have recently announced that its new flagship device, the Galaxy S3, has become the best-selling smartphone in the company’s history, after over 20 million units have been shipped in less than 100 days after the launch.

The previous record belonged to Samsung Galaxy S2, a terminal that reached the 20 million shipped units milestone 10 months after the launch.

The most Samsung Galaxy S3 were slot in Europe – 6 million units. 4.5 million Galaxy S3 units were shipped in Asia, 4 million in North America, while the South Korean market received 2.5 million copies.

Samsung Galaxy S3 was launched in early May and it comes with a profile of only 8.6 mm, a 4.7-inch HD Super AMOLED display with 1,280 x 720 pixels and weighs in 133 grams. The glossy case hides an extremely powerful quad-core 1.4 GHz CPU, backed-up by 1 GB of RAM. Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with three internal storage options: 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB.

The smartphone sports an 8 megapixel camera capable of recording 1080p videos. The Camera app has “zero” shutter lag and allows up to 20 shots being taken in burst mode.

We’ve told you earlier this month that some of our users have reported that their global Galaxy S3 models already received the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, thus we’d recommend you to go check whether the firmware update is available for your terminal, as well.

    The Jelly Bean update for my Samsung S3 was horrible. I couldn’t even open my Gallery easily. It lags a lot and I really dont know what’s wrong or what I can do about it. My friend encountered the same problem when she bought a brand new S3 with Jelly Bean installed. I miss my ICS. ICS was fine.
