Report: Android 4.1 Jelly Bean coming to the international Galaxy S III next week

The wait for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean might soon be over for some Galaxy S III owners. According to the folks over at Android Central, Samsung is planning on releasing the Jelly Bean for the international Galaxy S III next week, after its Samsung Unpacked event that is taking place in Berlin. Although there’s no visible proof of this, the guys at Android Central say that they’ve received the information from a reliable source that knows about Samsung’s plan.

According to the source, Jelly Bean for the Galaxy S III will be available shortly after the unpacked event (where Samsung will be revealing the Galaxy Note 2). After the event, the update will roll out to a number of countries including the UK.

Jelly Bean on the Galaxy S III will introduce features such as Google Now, redesigned notifications, and also new Touchwiz features such as easy mode for simplified home screen management.

Unfortunately, there’s no information on when the update will be available for consumers in the United States and Canada, where the Galaxy S III variant runs on a dual-core SnapDragon S4 processor instead of Samsung’s quad-core Exynos processor. Hopefully Samsung won’t keep us waiting too long after unleashing the update on the international model of the phone.
