Samsung today confirmed that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will be coming to the Galaxy S III in October.  Speaking today at the UK launch of the Everything Everywhere (now just ‘EE’) 4G LTE network, Samsung advised that the flagship handset will pick up the latest version of Android in just a few weeks.

“…the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system will be available on the Galaxy S3 from October.”

  4. […] While Siri has been updated for the new handset, it’s still something that users will have to “ask” to get to work.  Google Now, on the other hand, delivers relevant details without prompt, and learns over time, what the user is like and where they go.  Here’s to hoping for Android 4.1 in the near future.
