Samsung Galaxy S III Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update rolls out in South Korea

Samsung Galaxy S III Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update rolls out in South Korea
Samsung’s Android flagship, the Galaxy S III, is selling well all across the globe, but one thing that we’re still looking forward to on it is the arrival of the 4.1 Jelly Bean update. And now, Samsung is rolling it out to the Korean version of the Galaxy S III carrying a model number SHW-M440S.

If we take this as any indication, the update to the Galaxy S III for other countries should be even closer to reality now.

The update in Korea is rolling out through Samsung’s Kies desktop software but it should also be available over the air.

The US won't see it until late Nov. Verizon is going to roll it out in 2014.

I suspect that the fastest way to get a JB-packing Sammy phone from VZW will be to get the Note II. Or, wait for the GS IV to ship in 2013.

(Groaning) watching articles about the JB upgrade roll-out to different regions is going to be as painful as waiting for the GS III to release on VZW in the U.S. At least the GS III had a simultaneous release in the U.S. Unfortunately, I suspect JB will come to VZW GS IIIs last. :-(

I;m enjoying the the custom ROM of JB, and and it's faster than the standard of JB, cause it's clocked at 1.8Ghz.

If you run the benchmark you will get a score close to optimus G. I got 7765 on quadrant on 1.7ghz on s3 :)

Closer to reality, sure, except for Verizon. Come on, be 1st to get an update instead of last. Here's your chance.
