Samsung confirmed to deliver Android 4.1 to Galaxy S III in October

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.”

While we don’t have a hard date at this time, we like that the window is not so large any longer.  Look for an official announcement out of Samsung in the next few weeks.  Here’s to hoping the U.S. versions are right behind… or at the same time.

    Is this when it will really be ready for us to download though? Or is this when our carriers get a hold of it, and take months putting bloatware on it before finally giving us the update? I REALLY hope we get this in October :/
