Not long after Apple released the latest version of iOS, Samsung is also starting to roll out the latest version of the Android OS, version 4.1 (Jelly Bean) to its flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S III.
Android Central is reporting that the first to get the update are the unbranded handsets from Poland (“XEO” region). Currently, the update is being pushed through Samsung’s Kies software instead of over the air.
The Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S III will not only bring in new Google features such as Google Now to the smartphone, it will also introduce new TouchWiz features as well. New TouchWiz features include Dormant Mode (similar to Do Not Disturb on iOS) and better notification and alert management, according to the site.
Since the Android 4.1 update has already started, it won’t be long for unlocked Galaxy S III from other regions to get the update as well. As for those with locked phones, it might take some time for the Carriers to approve the update and roll out the update to their subscribers.
