Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean Update Now In Overdrive; AT&T, Verizon, Sprint & T-Mobile Yet To Join

South Korea has seen the update to Jelly Bean for the Samsung Galaxy S3 start to roll out from this week, joining the long list of European countries to already receive it.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update rollout goes into overdrive, lands in Asia!

While owners in the US will get the update to Jelly Bean for their Samsung Galaxy S3 (Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile), it seems that they will have to wait their turn, as other countries are getting it first.

SammyHub said that Jelly Bean was available for users in South Korea who own the Galaxy S3 and updates for the LTE Galaxy S3 and original Note are set to be making their way there soon as well.

Jelly Bean is of course the latest and best Android OS to date and many have said it is the most reliable and polished update to come from Google ever. One of the many Jelly Bean features include Project Butter which pretty much eliminates lag. Another is Google Now and improvements have been made to the voice search of Google.

The Galaxy Note 2 meanwhile runs on Jelly Bean and is available from retailers. The device comes with a price tag of between $750 and $800 unlocked. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon will also offer the phablet from next month with the 16GB version expected to be around $199.99.

The latest reports hint to the AT&T, Sprint & T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 getting the Jelly Bean update sometime in November. No word on when Verizon will join the party.
