galaxys3 s3 cm10 jb41 src34About a week ago, we reported that according to the rumor mill, it was suggested that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean could be making its way onto the Samsung Galaxy S3 next week, specifically the 29th of August which coincidentally is when Samsung will be unveiling the Galaxy Note 2. If you were still doubting that 29th of August date, the folks at Android Central are now claiming that according to their sources, they can “confirm” that international Samsung Galaxy S3 models will indeed receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update next week. It’s not a surprise that the update will only be pushed to international models first as carrier-tied models, specifically those in the US, will require carrier approval before the updates have been pushed out. In any case this “confirmation” is still unofficial as far as we’re concerned, but might be worth noting especially if you’re an owner of an international Samsung Galaxy S3 model. Take this with a grain of salt and check back with us on the 29th of the details.
