If you are the proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy S3, no doubt you have been eagerly awaiting its next software update. Well, there is good news as the update to Android Jellybean will begin rolling out across the UK by the end of the month.
The update sees the South Korean manufacturer’s popular Android flagship handset update from its current Android Ice Cream Sandwich platform to the new version also known as Jellybean. Those who make the update will notice a number of changes, but will not see the same level of change that we did when Android went from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich.

However, there will be a number of noticeable improvements. Firstly, the interface will be much more fluid, and optimised to be more responsive and much quicker to take advantage of the ample processing power provided by the handset. The notification menu and onscreen Qwerty keyboard will be improved, and you will now be able to manually resize widgets as well as the Pop-Up Play window.
The Android Jellybean update was temporarily available in Poland back in September, but rolling it out across the board was cancelled as a number of bugs were detected, which have now been fixed. According to Sammobile, Galaxy S3 users in Sweden also now have access to the updates via KIES or as an over the air update.
As of this week, customers with UK network Three also now have access to the update, with others to follow shortly. The Galaxy S3 is not the only Samsung handset to get the Jellybean software. The previous flagship handset, the Galaxy S2 will also be receiving the update in the near future. The new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has the software pre-installed, and when the Galaxy S3 Mini hits the market it will also Jellybean as standard. Other notable handsets to get the update in the near future include the HTC One X and One S, along with Samsung’s Galaxy S3 LTE compatible handset.
