Samsung isn’t wasting any time in working to deliver Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to its latest flagship devices. Android 4.1 has been “confirmed” by SamMobile to be in testing for both the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note, and the Galaxy S III has not only been caught on film running Jelly Bean, but files are available to give it a go for yourself.

Thanks to a combination of SamMobile and Samsung-Updates.com, Android 4.1.1 and an incremental update for the Galaxy S III are both available now for your flashing pleasure.

Yesterday, SamMobile leaked a test build of Android 4.1.1 for the SGS3 that featured everything you’d expect to see in a Samsung manufactured Jelly Bean update. The new updated includes expanded notifications, quick settings toggles, new live wallpapers and Google Now is fully functional.

Today, an incremental OTA update has also been released. The OTA is meant to be flashed over the original update to Jelly Bean. According to those who have tested this latest build, there’s nothing different between the two builds. Both are based on Android 4.1.1.

As for the Galaxy S II and Note, neither device have been spotted running Android 4.1, but their updates shouldn’t be far behind the SIII.

To get a look at Jelly Bean for the Samsung Galaxy S III, check out the video below. You can probably expect most of the same changes to hit the SII and Note as well.
