Galaxy S III owners can now expect the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to arrive on their smartphones in the not too distant future, as the South Korean mobile phone maker has started to roll it out once again.Initially spotted on Galaxy S III units in Poland at the end of last month, the update has already arrived on devices in South Korea last week, and is now up for download for models in Sweden as well.
Samsung did not offer specific info on what determined it to delay the update last month, but it seems that it might have managed to sort out any issues that affected users’ experience with it and that the OS is up for download once again.
According to SamMobile, the initial platform release came along with a series of interface bugs, as well as with some problems that resulted in the phone’s battery being drained fast.
With Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean now available in Sweden as well, following its deployment in South Korea in the beginning of the month, users in more countries should also start receiving notifications on its availability.
Some of the improvements that users will receive along with Jelly Bean include enhanced performance, courtesy of the included Project Butter that has been further optimized, along with a new Notifications bar.
Moreover, the update will bring along Google Now and a Sizable Pop-up play screen, as well as two homescreen modes, and a reorganized settings menu.
The new platform upgrade is available for download through the Samsung Kies desktop software, and all those interested in giving it a try should fire up the application on their PCs, connect the smartphone and hit the search for updates button.
Samsung did not offer specific info on additional countries set to taste the update this month, but it should not be too long before such details are made available, so stay tuned to learn the news.
