Vodafone U.K. Begins Rolling Out Samsung Galaxy S III’s Jelly Bean Update

Samsung Galaxy S III software update

Vodafone has become the second carrier in the United Kingdom (with Three the first) to begin rolling out the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade for the Samsung Galaxy S III. It will be a staggered release that will happen over the next few days, and customers will receive a notification to let them know when it’s ready to download over-the-air to their device.

If you don’t want to wait for it, however, Pocket-lint reports that you can connect your device to your PC and download the Jelly Bean upgrade straight away using Samsung’s Kies application.

The Jelly Bean upgrade for the Galaxy S III is unlike other Android updates, because it’s arriving on carrier-locked devices before it arrives on unlocked ones. Traditionally, unlocked and SIM-free handsets receive the software first — as soon as it’s released by the handset manufacturer.

It seems to be the other way around in this case, with Samsung keeping unlocked Galaxy S III owners waiting.

Has your Galaxy S III received Jelly Bean yet?
