There have been a few rumors, a few leaks, and a lot of speculation as to when Samsung would release the Android 4.1 update for the Samsung Galaxy S III. Samsung has disclosed that it will have the update available for the European version of the handset some time in October. Specifics about the rollout were not given, but the assumption is that unlocked devices will be the first to receive the update with carrier branded devices following several weeks later due to time restraints and additional testing.

For now, Samsung has not released any information regarding the Jelly Bean update for carrier branded versions of the Samsung Galaxy S III in the US market. In the past, US customers have had to wait an additional 4-6 months from the time the first updates were released in Europe. We’re hoping things will be a bit different this time around. A November time frame would be nice, but don’t be surprised if Samsung delivers the Android 4.1 update for your Galaxy S III just in time for the holidays.
