After Google unveiled its latest flavor of Android during Google I/O 2012, everyone was anxious to know when their device would get the update, or IF? Samsung has been open about updating the Galaxy SIII to Jelly Bean, and reports are coming in from SamMobille and GSMArena that Samsung are working on the update and are expecting to release it on August 29. This date may ring a bell, as its the day that Samsung will be unveiling its Note 2 during the Unpacked event for IFA in Berlin. Looks like Samsung may have other announcements besides the Note’s successor.
Skeptics may say that this rumour may be just that, – a rumour – , as test builds of future OTA updates always end up leaking on XDA, with devs releasing the leaked updates to users. However, don’t take this with a grain of salt just yet, Samsung have certainly tightened up security on their part and are avoiding any leaks as far as possible. We haven’t even gotten a glimpse of the Note 2 yet, which clearly shows Sammy’s efforts.
The rollout is expected to hit international versions of the Galaxy S3 first, as carrier branded models have to go through their strict checks and “optimisation” process. Users in Malaysia can expect a brisk update as our models are part of the International rollout.
