Another security update for Sprint's Samsung Galaxy S III as Verizon pre-orders now ship July 19th
At the end of last month, Sprint downloaded a security update for owners of the Sprint branded Samsung Galaxy S III. The update apparently didn't stop the device from being vulnerable as Sprint has once again pushed out another security update for the phone. The OTA update will not result in any changes that you will be able to notice. We will repeat the same question we asked last time. You didn't expect Android 4.1 so soon, did you?

Sprint suggests that you have your battery at the 50% full (or is that 50% empty?) mark before embarking on loading the OTA update. The new software version being installed on the phone is L710VPLG2.  And while Sprint customers are getting their new handset updated to be more secure, Verizon customers have just been on the receiving end of pre-ordered Samsung Galaxy S III units. On Sunday evening came word that Verizon's own web site was promoting a July 12th launch of the device in Big Red's retail locations. Now, another look at Verizon's web site shows that those pre-ordering the phone now won't have it shipped until July 19th.
