The relentless success of the Samsung Galaxy S3 has been hugely impressive, exceeding already lofty expectations by selling 10 million units in its first two months of release. Naturally, such a seminal phone is well worthy of receiving the latest operating system updates as quickly as possible, and SamMobile have now dropped the hint that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will be coming to the device soon.
According to the site’s insiders, Samsung have already undertaken the first tests of the OS on their phones, and they have been successful. While the update is expected to come out on all high-end devices, it’s not entirely certain whether it will come to the now-mid-range Galaxy SII.
SamMobile are optimistic however. Due to the enduring popularity of the SII, it’s highly likely that Samsung will keep supporting the device with the latest updates. They singled out the Galaxy SII, the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Tab 7.7 as the most likely devices to receive Jelly Bean after the S3.
All this remains unofficial for now, but what the sources are saying is largely in line with what the mobile community is expecting.
The Jelly Bean update is likely to come out for the Galaxy S3 in August or September.
