The upgrade was previously available for users in Poland and Sweden
We already reported a few days ago that Samsung has started the global rollout of the hotly-anticipated Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S III.Android enthusiasts in Poland and Sweden were among the first to get the update in Europe, after Samsung officially introduced Jelly Bean for Galaxy S III in South Korea earlier this month.
Today, the folks over at AndroidPolice report the Jelly Bean update has reached more Samsung Galaxy S III owners in Romania, Spain, France and Austria.
We can only confirm that in Romania, at least for unlocked Samsung Galaxy S III devices, the update is not available yet.
SamMobile’s list of available Jelly Bean ROMs suggests that the update is only pushed through Vodafone Galaxy S III device for the moment.
Samsung Galaxy S III owners living in Spain should know that Jelly Bean is now available for both unlocked devices as well as those purchased from Vodafone.
In France, only SFR Galaxy S III units are currently receiving the update, which in Austria, major carrier A1 is the only one that offers the Jelly Bean update.
However, once started, it’s just a matter of days until Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will go live in all European countries.
It’s a bit weird that unlock Galaxy S III devices are not among the first to get this update in the countries targeted by Samsung until now, but we expect this will be corrected soon and we will get Jelly Bean as well.
The update has around 320MB in size and is pushed OTA (over the air), so not all Galaxy S III owners will get it at the same time.
Jelly Bean brings new features and performance improvements. Make sure you back your any sensitive data stored on the phone before upgrading to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
