Samsung Galaxy S3 Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Update Continues Making Its Way across Europe
According to sources, Austria, France, Romania and Spain are the latest countries whose Galaxy S3 users can now update their phones to Jelly Bean. Three weeks ago, Polish users got their updates, but after a three-week snag, the European rollout continued in Sweden earlier in the week.
But even then, many agree that the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to Jelly Bean updates are moving at a glacial pace, especially since Samsung promised that the Galaxy S3 would be one of the first devices to receive those updates.
There’s even a good chance that users in the United States may have to wait until early 2013 before Jelly Bean is rolled out for the Galaxy S3. Samsung has always prioritized the Southeast Asian and European markets, but many believe the updating process for international users should have gone a lot faster.
Just like the Swedish update, Jelly Bean is available only for subscribers of specific carriers from the countries mentioned above. In Romania, the update is only available for Orange and Vodafone users.
SFR is the only French carrier whose Jelly Bean update is ready to roll out. Users from the above countries can check the settings of their phone for an over-the-air update notification or install it themselves through the Samsung Kies software.
