Jelly Bean coming to International Samsung Galaxy S III next week
posted by Alan F. / Aug 21, 2012, 9:51 PM
Besides getting the usual Jelly Bean features like Google Now, the update will also bring new features to the International Samsung Galaxy S III through TouchWiz. These include the new "dormant mode" that improves notifications and alerts, and an "easy mode" for, well, easy home screen functionality.
So where does this leave those sporting the Qualcomm S4 powered version of the sizzling hot Android smartphone? Besides being a little envious, it leaves them just a bit closer to getting Android 4.1 on their device.
- Display 4.8" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.9 MP front
- Processor Samsung Exynos 4 Quad, Quad-core, 1400 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2100 mAh(11.60h 3G talk time)

you can update the third leaks which I believe the final leak from XDA. I updated mine with Odin and every run super smooth, google voice is fast! and whole thing is butter smooth. There are changes but i'm not gonna list here so have fun

They better not do the same thing that they did with my S2. I love my ICS update, but it took a long time. It wasn't the fact that it took a long time that bugged me, it's that they kept promising a release date and kept postponing it. For months. Ugh.

What? The GS3 is getting the update before the US Nexus? Verizon and Sprint, what's wrong? Google should really step in at this point. Jelly Bean has been out for more than a month, and it still isn't available for the Nexus in the US. It's ready, just for some reason they don't want to roll it out yet.
