Wondering if your brand new Galaxy S III will get Google’s brand new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade? So are we. We reached out to Samsung for official comment and it sounds like the company is planning to bring the update to the Galaxy S III and other high-end products, such as the Galaxy Note. We’re speculating here, folks, but the company’s wording seems to suggest it. It makes sense, considering the Galaxy S III outspecs the Galaxy Nexus in nearly every way. In any case, here’s the official word:
Samsung will soon announce which additional devices are eligible for the Jelly Bean update. As the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer, Samsung leads the Android community with best-in-class devices like the Galaxy S III, and is creating new device categories with products like the Galaxy Note. Samsung has delivered the most Nexus-branded lead OS devices and we are pleased that Google will be bringing Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S customers the first experiences of Jelly Bean on a handheld device.
