Owners of a Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone on the network of Canadian wireless carrier TELUS should be looking for the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update on their devices towards the end of next month, new reports suggest.
In fact, the info comes from the wireless services provider itself, which has published an update roll-out schedule
on its website, pointing at the availability of the upgrade in late November.
TELUS is currently waiting for the update to arrive from Samsung for testing purposes, and only after this process has been completed it will be able to offer more info on when the OS will arrive on devices.
In addition to Galaxy S III
, TELUS’ Galaxy S II x and Galaxy Note are also set to receive the software update, with both of them currently slated for upgrade in late December.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 tablet PCs on the company’s network are receiving a platform upgrade, though it is the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
notes, Samsung actually promised the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS for its Galaxy S III devices in Canada before holidays, and it appears that it is moving closer to pushing it out to users.
Unfortunately, no specific info on when Jelly Bean
will be delivered to TELUS’ customers owning a Samsung device has emerged so far, but it might not be too long before these details are made official.
The Android 4.1 operating system is already being deployed on Galaxy S III devices around the world, including South Korea, where it arrived at the beginning of this month, and Europe, where users in various countries are currently seeing it land on their smartphones.
Owners of this device in the United States
won’t receive the update for a few months more, Samsung has announced officially last week. Some suggest that the OS has been pushed to 2013 for them.
