Official Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean update leaks, stamped September 3

Official Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean update leaks, stamped September 3
Official Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean update leaked, dated September 3, and carrying the number I9300XXDLI1. There was another official one leaked before, but it was dated July, and we can't help but think that the update should start rolling any day now, considering how fresh this last one is.

It is slated to be an OTA update, so you don't have to use the Kies software on your computer, and we can't wait to see what goodies Samsung has in store for TouchWiz on Jelly Bean, whether it will be the same experience as on the Note II, or something different.

Bear in mind that this September 3 Jelly Bean is for te quad-core international version, as getting through the US carrier hoops would require more time for Samsung, but people who already installed it say it has minimal issues as a daily driver. Hit the source link for more details on the installation, if you are interested to try it out.

And where are the people who used to trash on Samsung for "slow updates" now?

It's the carrier's problem, not Samsung.

Samsung does not look after old models. Is Galalxy s2 old enough that sammy doesn't want to update it's firmware. So, what Samsung expects us to buy a new model every time. Sammy sucks really

Sorry buddy, but it's all about business.... It's all about making money. U need to hold other features so people can buy your current product so you can make more money and show it off to your share holders and whoever, and brag to your competitors, and in term convinces the consumer that a lot of people buy your products, in turn convinces us that people must really like your product, and don't we all trust a product that a majority buys if we are not sure what to buy. Just take a look at Apple, they are not including Siri on any pre-iP4S models, so to attract consumers to buy the iPhone 4S. And a lot of people left their iPhone 4, for 4S, just to taste Siri. And that my friend is a good Marketing team afford, which works for Apple, cos their customers are so loyal, there is nothing you can say to them, that will change their mind. And Samsung haters don't just come from Apple fans but Moto, HTC and so on fans. So Samsung Marketers can use updates as a way to attract people to dump their old phones and buy the latest. This can work against them or actually work for Samsung. The truth is, we all know that by now. That if your phone is older than 12 month, well.... it is old.... technology grows fast these days, what was released yesterday, well feels like an antic. But Apple's court wins might change that. Technology might be going on some slooooooooooooooow motion. Just saying And just to make it clear to everyone. I'm a loyal Apple fans (just the iPhone, i hate iPad, feels like the bigger version of my iPhone) and I'm typing form my Windows 7 netbook, and I'm also a fan of Samsung, I bought Galaxy tab 10.1 instead of iPad 2. So there you go. I love both Apple and Sumsang. But if I have to chose btwen d 2, I will choose technology and innovation anyday, whether be it Apple or Samsung. Power to Innovation

I have ICS on my Epic 4G Touch. Jelly Bean should be coming soon.

well sure, this is quite an accomplishment for them but it's a complete 360 from how they used to be and their updates are still very oh how should i say...uninspired. i bet you'll barely tell the difference between a GB SII and a JB SII.

I don't think it's about telling the difference but added features that are available on JB. TouchWiz will ofcos look the same. I know what I'm talking about cos my iPhone UI looks the same, just some added features and some added apps. Just saying.

Google thinks it's about telling the difference. they've put more into the design philosophy of Android with ICS+ and Samsung won't get out of the past. that's the flip side to iOS, it has an uninspired design now, it's become old and stale but at the same time i realize that it's the brand familiarity that Apple is after, not the case with Samsung though as TW itself is evolving aesthetically but not for older devices, in fact Samsung devices rarely ever see a UI version bump.

ahh.. dont fall for it. Samsung has always regularly leaked updates. They have a 3rd party website that posts them www.samfirmwares.com There was even SGS1 updates there last month for bug fixes and such. You will never see them on a carrier though. The difference has always been the carriers who decide if they want to actually push the leaks.. That is why peeps like how easy samsung phones are to root and ROM.

Yes man we cant tell difference by looking at someone else's phone, we can when we have it. Touchwiz 4 came to s1 so why cant we expect nature on s2.

that's because there's minor differences. you can tell Motorola devices running GB and ICS from a mile away, it's even pretty easy to tell HTC devices running GB and ICS apart but it's trickier with an SII. if the SII didn't get UX with ICS there's no reason to believe it would get it with an update as incremental as JB.

I say a couple more months before it rolls out so I can get the ever so useful "Sprint Zone" added to the update...

I'd think you'd like the Galaxy Note. Huge screen to lick.

And with the iPhone, you may have an extremely heavy phone that feels like a brick, but the software can't do anything. Now go away.

When it comes to money Galaxy Note is selling way cheaper than iphone 4 in India.
