Samsung has begun rolling out the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update for its flagship Galaxy S III. Starting in Poland, the software is being delivered via Samsung’s Kies application for Mac and PC, but it could be several weeks before it arrives in other territories.
The update was first spotted by XDA Developers forum member “victorator,” who has published screenshots of Jelly Bean running on the Galaxy S III (above). In addition to performance improvements, the software also introduces Google Now to the handset, as well as contextual search, new notifications, and updates to Samsung’s built-in apps.
The update is rolling out a little earlier than anticipated, with Samsung stating that it would actually make its public debut in October. If you’re not located in Poland, it’s likely it will still take a little time to make its way to you, but at least you now know it’s finally on its way.
Those with an unlocked device — which will not require carrier approval — will, of course, see the update before anyone else.
Has Jelly Bean arrived on your Galaxy S III yet?
