Looks like the Jelly Bean is rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy SIII and it will most likely to be the first non-Nexus Android smartphone to don the Android 4.1 running in its systems.
Samsung has recently approved the news with SIII users in Poland as the first to be upgraded with the latest OS hinting the update will be “gradually introduced to other markets”. Samsung also added that Jelly Bean will be dependent on market and carrier’s requirements. The Google Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, Nexus 7 and the Motorola Xoom were among the first devices scheduled to have the Jelly Bean update in mid-July but wasn’t able to until two days ago, as suggested by a very reliable source.
Donning the Android 4.1, the Samsung Galaxy SIII will be blessed by a handful of nifty features including Google Now real-time reminders and recommendations, triple buffering via its graphics pipeline will render quick responses and the Jelly Bean will take a hint on where your fingers are heading as you navigate the device. Software updates for the Galaxy SIII will have the users to resize the Pop Up Play video window, an Easy Mode sequence wherein users can locate 5 Easy widgets on their home screen, a Blocking Mode to shield against unwanted calls, notifications and indicators and a pause feature on video mode, among others. The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will be heading to Europe in October while Americans should receive it by November.
Other Samsung devices will also have the tasty and sweet offerings of the new OS “soon” and it will include the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0 and 10.1), Galaxy Note (10.1), Galaxy SII, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, Galaxy S Advance, Galaxy SII LTE, Galaxy Music, Galaxy Ace 2, Galaxy Chat, Galaxy Ace Plus, Galaxy Beam, Galaxy S DUOS and last but certainly not the least, the Galaxy Mini II.
