Android Jellybean Update For Galaxy S3 Now Available To Vodafone Customers

Popular UK networks Three and O2 rolled out the Android 4.1 Jellybean update to the customers who own the ever popular Samsung Galaxy S3 last week.


These have now been joined by Vodafone, making it the first network to do so in a matter of days.  Using either a Wi-Fi connection for Samsung KIES, Vodafone customers who own the flagship Android smartphone from the South Korean manufacturer will be able to replace the current Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 operating system with the latest version.  If the rollout of the Android Jellybean update continues at this pace, then we are surely not far away from seeing all UK networks offering the upgrade to its customers who own the Galaxy S3.

It makes sense that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the first handsets to get the update to Android Jellybean in the UK on account of its popularity.  A number of other notable smartphones are also due to receive the update soon.  HTC has announced that its popular One X and One S models will get the upgrade next month, while Sony has announced that a number of models in its it XPERIA range will be getting the Jellybean treatment throughout the next few months.  Samsung has a couple of devices which have the new software already installed.  The recently launched Galaxy Note 2 comes with Android 4.1 Jellybean as its operating system, as will the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini which is due to be launched shortly.


Although the rollout of Android Jellybean is now ready gathering pace, Google is soon to announce its next instalment of its mobile operating system.  At an event which is set to take place at the end of the month, the new version of the software will be introduced, although it has not been confirmed whether the announcement will be regarding Jellybean 4.2 or the next major upgrade called Key Lime Pie 5.0.


Samsung Galaxy S3 Contract Deals are available from Vodafone and other major UK networks.  Pay as you go and SIM free options are also available.
