Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update release date imminent

Sammy's latest 4G-capable S3 is set to launch with Jelly Bean out of the box, with an update for existing owners right around the corner

The Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE model is one of the newly announced UK 4G launch handsets that will be compatible with EE’s new 4G network – and it looks like it’ll be arriving with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.

EE’s spec sheet for Sammy’s 4G-capable Galaxy S3 reveals that it will be running the latest version of Android on launch, packed within an exclusive Titanium Grey body.

If you’re currently rocking a non-4G Samsung Galaxy S3 then there’s no need to get too worked up as a Jelly Bean update seems to be right around the corner.

A German TechRadar reader has reported that his Galaxy S3 is already chowing down on a Jelly Bean update, so it shouldn’t be too long before Galaxy S3 users get a taste of the latest Android operating system.
