Sprint is the first U.S. carrier to roll out Jelly Bean to the Samsung Galaxy S III: update starts today
The Samsung Galaxy S III is the top Android phone on all U.S. carriers, but it has been lacking one thing for a while - Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The world has gotten it for the most part, and now Sprint officially becomes the first U.S. carrier to bring the latest of Android to the S III.

It’s an OTA update and here is Sprint’s official statement about this:
