Patient Verizon Galaxy S3 Users See Jelly Bean Hit Smaller Carriers First

By  | 

Verizon and AT&T customers are still waiting for the rollout of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for their Samsung Galaxy S3. Earlier this week the Android 4.1 update for Verizon customers leaked online thanks to XDA Developers. However at the moment there is still no word on when the official release may be. The third and fourth largest carriers in the US, Sprint and T-Mobile, have both offered the Jelly Bean update to their customers already.

AT&T & Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update still not here

With T-Mobile you can get your hands on the Jelly Bean update through Kies or OTA. Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3 customers have had the update for some time now. This has left those with the two top carriers in the US seething as they will be the last to get the update for their S3 in the US now.

It was said that the Verizon update would come out on the 16th of November, however that passed a long time back. The leaked Verizon update is VRBLK1 and many are saying that this could be the final version. At this moment however there is no word of it being official.

Of course you do have to be careful when considering leaked ROMs and use them with some caution. Verizon should be releasing the Jelly Bean update very soon and so it could be worth waiting just a little while longer to get your hands on the real deal.

Meanwhile those with an AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3 are also still waiting for Jelly Bean and the carrier did say that it would be out at some point during this month. However don’t hold your breath as they don’t have the best track record when it comes to Androids. If anything it could be December before the update comes out.

At the moment more than 30 countries are enjoying the Jelly Bean update which has rolled out with different carriers.
