Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean 4.2 update may release any day


The rolling out of later versions of the Android operating system can be a touchy subject among many users of the platform. While many users just wait patiently for the new software to arrive others want the various updates like yesterday. Now the Samsung Galaxy S3 Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update release date has been tipped again and could arrive any day.

Back at the end of May there were hopes raised that the latest version of the Android OS would be hitting the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 during the month of June. This obviously didn’t happen with news of a delay surfacing, but now the update is being tipped to arrive sometime this month, and considering we are almost half way through July if accurate it could arrive in a matter of days.

We recently saw the official software in a new leak that contained some improvements from the version that was seen before, so would have meant that any issues with the firmware were being ironed out with a release getting closer.

The new Android update will also bring some new Samsung features that are found on the Galaxy S4 such as Smart Pause and Smart Scroll, and this will come with all the new Android goodies that will be arriving with the full details of these can be found here.

Obviously once the software is pushed out by Samsung users will have to wait for the various carriers to get their acts together and do their own testing and adding features to the software, which could add a lot of time for its arrival for some.

My personal version of the smartphone is unlocked so hopefully it will be one of the first to receive Android 4.2.2. Jelly Bean, and when it does we will notify you of its presence and should also mean that the Galaxy Note 2 will be getting the update around the same time.

    You say “My personal version of the smartphone is unlocked so hopefully it will be one of the first to receive Android 4.2.2.”
    I doubt very much this will happen……. If you base the update on how Samsung have been delivering the S4 update it will be the carriers who will see any updates first.

      when we say “it’s up to carriers” we mean the locked versions around the world,because of their own bloatware..my s3 has nothing to do with my carrier…any update i will get i will get it from samsung,not my carrier..

        Exactly, it will be up to Samsung and at the moment Samsung are being extremely slow to certain countries (UK BTU SIM Free is still waiting for the S4 updates whilst countries such as Germany have already received 2 updates).
        Don’t forget, this time round Samsung appear to be pushing the S4 updates to the carriers first. This could also happen with the S3.

    Samsung are very poor in providing updates. There is no point in buying their flagship phones and keep on waiting for updates considering next android version 4.3 is out already on nexus devices…. 🙁
