It’s been a leaky road to release for Jelly Bean on the Galaxy S III. A number of builds are out in the wild and at the Everything Everywhere (EE) 4G event in the UK yesterday Samsung reps were quoted as advising the update would be ready for release in October although with all software that could be subject to change.
This date of course would be a release to carriers for testing unless you have the unlocked international GSM version which would skip that phase of testing. Currently Vodafone and Telstra both list the status of the Jelly Bean update as waiting for submission from vendor, although I’m sure that Optus are waiting on exactly the same thing.
Of course if you are after a Galaxy S III running Jelly Bean you could always just jump onto the 4G variant that both Optus and Telstra will be selling which comes with the latest version of Android already installed but for those of you waiting for the update it’s good to see some sort of timeline. Anyone NOT excited for Jelly Bean on their SGS III?
