If you are an owner of the Samsung Galaxy S3 in the US you may have to wait until 2013 to get your hands on the Jelly Bean update reports TheExaminer.
US Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) pushed to 2013?
Examiner suggests that Samsung have said that through their Facebook page that the UK version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be updated to the latest OS by the end of October. However for those with the five carriers in the US, except Sprint, the update to Android may not arrive until next year.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 has gained more than 20 million users since May 29th and many of these users had their hopes set on getting Jelly Bean. However with each passing day they are still left waiting, while other countries get their hands on it they are left holding devices running ICS.
There have been leaked versions of the ROM for Jelly Bean, however if you install one of these then you will void your warranty. This means that most Samsung Galaxy S3 owners will not risk rooting their devices and installing a custom ROM.
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has received the update to the Jelly Bean and this was released back in 2011 with its 4.65 inch screen and beefy specs. Anyone wanting the best from Google and who do not care about the iPhone 5 can enjoy the Nexus, but they have to make sacrifices by way of the specs of the Galaxy S3.
So if you have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and you live in the US, for now all you can do is wait and hope that the Jelly Bean update appears sooner rather than later. Jelly Bean is available for Samsung Galaxy S3 users in parts of Europe and South Korea already.
