Samsung: Jelly Bean Update Coming to the Galaxy S3 “Very Soon”

During Samsung’s keynote today at IFA, they confirmed that the Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) update for the Galaxy S3 will be arriving “very soon.” Since they announced the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Camera as running Jelly Bean out of the box, we would assume that they have basically finalized it for the GS3 as well. “Soon” certainly makes a lot of sense.

The thing to remember, is that the update may be finished, but there are carriers involved that will need to give their final approval. I hate to be a downer, but Verizon’s will likely be last to the party. As a carrier known for being incredibly slow to take their time on updates, it wouldn’t surprise me to see the international variant receive the update first, followed by T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint before Verizon customers can enjoy the fun that is Jelly Bean. After all, the Galaxy Nexus LTE¬†still doesn’t have the update, and it’s a damn Nexus.
