The Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone will soon receive the Google Android ‘Jelly Bean’ update in the United States. The Android 4.1 update was confirmed on Wednesday by Samsung; however, the company noted that the update is ultimately dependent on carrier support. What that means is that certain providers will push out the upgrade faster than others.
Samsung did not give an exactly release date, only noting that it will be rolling out “in the coming months.”
The US roll out follows this months international update, which starts with Poland and then spreads throughout Europe.
Samsung notes that the 4G model of the device, which will roll out in the UK on Everything Everywhere, will come already equipped with the Jelly Bean OS pre-installed.
Given the availability of the OS upgrade at the time of the 4G model roll out, there is a good chance that other UK Galaxy S III handsets will receive the software upgrade at the same time.
Samsung has recently announced system upgrades for various smartphones manufactured by the handset provider. Among devices receive Android updates are Tab 2 7.0 and 10.1, S II, Note, Tab 7.0 Plus, S Advance, S II LTE, Music, Chat, Ace 2, Beam, Ace Plus, Mini II, and S Duos.
Also bringing the power of Google Android 4.1 into the mix is the Galaxy S III Mini, which was announced just several weeks ago.
