The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 has begun rolling out to handsets in Eastern Europe, signalling a possible arrival to other regions very soon.
According to SamMobile, Galaxy S3 handsets in Poland can now get Jelly Bean via the Kies desktop software or through an over the air (OTA) update.
Apparently Android 4.1 will hit other countries later this month, which means we could see if before the week is out, as October starts on Monday.
SamMobile reports improved battery performance and a smoother operation thanks to Project Butter on its updated Samsung Galaxy S3, as well as a tweaked settings menu, new notifications bar, resizable pop-up-play window and the addition of Google Now.
Over at German site AllAboutSamsung, Galaxy S3 owners in Serbia, Croatia and Macedonia can also apparently take advantage of the Jelly Bean update.
There’s yet to be any official word from Samsung on exact timings of its Jelly Bean roll-out plans. We’ve contacted Samsung about these latest reports and we’ll update this article once we hear back.
