Samsung rolls out Android Jelly Bean for the Galaxy S3, soon on other devices

Samsung started rolling out the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for their flagship phone, the Galaxy S3. Poland gets first dibs but before you start jumping for joy, it will gradually roll out in other markets in no specific timeframe.

With this news, the Samsung Galaxy S3 becomes the first non-Nexus handset to get Android Jelly Bean. Samsung also announced that after the Galaxy S3, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 & 10.1, Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy SII, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, Galaxy S Advance, Galaxy SII LTE, Galaxy Music, Galaxy Chat, Galaxy Ace 2, Galaxy Beam, Galaxy Ace Plus, Galaxy mini II and Galaxy S DUOS will also be getting their respective update.

Aside from the new features the Jelly Bean update will bring, Samsung Galaxy S3 owners will also get a few Samsung-software updates. The pop-up play video can now be resized and positioned anywhere in the screen like in the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. Pause and resume is now possible while video recording so you don’t have to take multiple videos. There’s also Blocking Mode where you can block notifications, incoming calls, alarms and LED indicators for a period of time.

We’ll keep you posted once we got word when the Jelly Bean update reaches the Philippines.

    • Tim

    i got this in my s3 OTA ” Access to the software update service is provided to users in the order in which they request it.Try later” . what this means?

    • zoidian

      Just try it again and again..I also encountered that error also and succesfully updated mine after several attempts..You may restart also your s3..It seems that many users are trying to connect to servers for the update that’s why we have that message..

      • Denver

        so meron na talaga? and the message “no update available” is just an error?

  • chad

    how come that my s3 doesnt have the update while my friend’s s3 already updated earlier. always shows that theres no available update.

    • maybe you got your S3 from a different country.

      • chad

        how will i know the country origin of my s3?

      • dan ortega

        updated na s3 ko kgabi lng mas smooth ganda

  • mags

    sa mga nakapag update na ng S3 nila sa pinas please check kung may mga issues kayo. Like usually charging the phone will only take 2-3 hours. After JB update over OTA charging time will take 4-5 hours…. Had mine updated to JB but went to Samsung service center to bring it back to ICS.

  • jcl

    I am having the same problem too.. charging takes to long and i thingbatt drains a lot too. Hope this problem will be solved.

  • TOYOTA_BOY

    mga pare patulong naman pano mag update ng version fro ICS to JB. bago lang po kasi ako sa android.. salamat!

    • sinneD

      punta ka sa service center ng brand ng CP mo (ex. Samsung if samsung CP mo). libre, hassle free pa.

  • Gelou

    any update on when jellybean OS will be available for galaxy tab 2 7.0?
