Ever since its official release, Samsung Galaxy S III has been very popular among the world, even though it only comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The absence of the latest Android Jelly Bean system and its advantages have made people so eagle to get Jelly Bean updates for their Galaxy S III smartphones. By now, the east European users have got the Jelly Bean update on Galaxy S III in late September, while other regions of the world also get Jelly Bean update in September, except users in US. According to Samsung Mobile’s latest official press-release, the Jelly Bean update for the U.S. versions of the Galaxy S III will arrive "in the coming months." It also mentions that the specific time of release for each update will be revealed by each respective carrier.
According to the Examiner reports, Samsung spokesmen have informed that the U.S. versions of the Galaxy S III will be the last to receive a software update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Though the exact reasons have not been specified, there might have something to do with carrier testing processes or the slightly different hardware found in those versions of the phone.
So, what all of this means in this case is that the U.S. versions of the Samsung Galaxy S III may not receive their Android 4.1 updates until 2013! But, if you are an Android user, haven’t you yet been used to waiting for the update of OS for all these years?
