There has been a lot of news online about which devices are going to get the Jelly Bean update. One of the most asked about handsets is the Samsung Galaxy S3. The update to Jelly Bean for the S3 has started to roll out in the US, but it has been very slow with only Sprint users getting the honors. So who is next on the list? Could it be heading to AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile or one of the smaller US carriers next?
Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 may not be last to Jelly Bean update (prediction)
Samsung said that the update would be out in September. However it has been the carriers who have been slow to deliver. Some people in the US thought that it could be 2013 before they would see the update. Sprint was the optimistic one and true to form they got the update and were the first among the major carriers to offer it.
Since then the update has continued to roll out and now owners of the device on AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and US Cellular are waiting to find out which of these carriers will get it next. With Sprint already releasing it, surely it can’t be long until they all get it?
Popherald for is not sure about this as on the website of Samsung it says that the update is coming and tells you which of the devices will get it in what order, supposedly. It shows that Sprint is at the top of the list and they have it of course. For the rest of the US carriers it still says that the update is coming soon. The names of carriers have then been listed. These are AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and then US Cellular.
The names are not in alphabetical order though, hinting that Verizon may not be the last to get the update despite its disappointing track record when it comes to updating Galaxy devices. If the update is pushed out in the order of names then AT&T are next, followed by Verizon. T-Mobile would follow and then US Cellular would be the last carrier to get the update.
Of course at the moment there is nothing definite. However wouldn’t Samsung have put the names in alphabetical order? For now all owners of the Samsung Galaxy S3 can do is wait patiently for Jelly Bean to come their way. At least you know that your handset will get it at some point.
