Samsung Galaxy S3 to get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean this year?

The Galaxy S3, Samsung’s flagship device, has been going down a storm since its release earlier this year, and now the innovative smartphone is due to get even better.

The device currently runs the operating system Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but is rumoured to be upgraded to run the next Android installment before the end of the year.

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, announced by Google at its I/O event last week, is the latest version of the widely used and hugely popular mobile operating system.

The latest version brings a number of improvements to Ice Cream Sandwich, and is due to be rolled out to various devices in the next couple of months.

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

Not a completely new OS, rather a very decent upgrade to ICS, Jelly Bean has several features to improve smoothness and usability.

At the heart of the upgrade is Project Butter, which is designed to make navigating around the system easier and smoother.

Keyboard functionality has also been improved, and the updated version of voice search and voice controls should give Siri a run for its money.

Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean upgrade

In the tech world, we love anything new. So it’s little wonder that manufacturers are keen to get the new OS to their devices as quickly as possible.

Samsung has confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S will both get the OS update before the end of the year.

“Samsung has delivered the most Nexus-branded lead OS devices,” the South Korean tech giant said in a statement.

“We are pleased that Google will be bringing Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S customers the first experiences of Jelly Bean on a handheld device.”

But reports have suggested that the Galaxy S3 will not be far behind, claiming Samsung has already confirmed that the device will get the update in the fourth quarter of this year. So watch this space!
