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.

Sprint is rolling out the JB update to the Galaxy S III starting today, so if it still hasn’t appeared on your device feel free to just tap on Settings and manually check if you can update.

The Jelly Bean update is an incremental one, but still it’s hugely important for the fact that it smoothens out the slight lag in the animations on Google’s platform. With Jelly Bean, Android becomes nearly perfectly smooth, and that’s due to the introduction of triple buffering. The update also brings features like Google Now, and many others.

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