Jelly Bean coming to International Samsung Galaxy S III next week
The GT-i9300 is getting Jelly Bean next week. If you don't remember what phone that model number relates to, it's the International version of the Samsung Galaxy S III. This comes from sources for Android Central who are familiar with Samsung's plans. Once the August 29th Samsung Unpacked event is over (and presumably Sammy packs up), the Android 4.1 update will start rolling out across the globe, including the United Kingdom.

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.
