Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S III Gets Jelly Bean Update in U.K.

Samsung Galaxy S III software update

After first arriving on handsets locked to Three and Vodafone, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade is now making its way to unlocked Samsung Galaxy S III devices in the United Kingdom. The package weighs in at just over 284MB, and it’s being distributed over-the-air starting this morning.

It goes without saying that you’ll want to ensure your device is connected to a Wi-Fi network before you attempt to download the update, and you’ll probably need a fair bit of battery life, too. You can also upgrade your device using Samsung’s KIES app on Mac and PC if you’d prefer to do it there.

The Galaxy S III’s Jelly Bean upgrade has been unlike other Android upgrades here in Britain. Rather than arriving on unlocked handsets first, it first appeared on devices locked to the Three and Vodafone networks. The move left SIM-free customers scratching their heads, but today’s rollout should put those minds at rest.

Have you got Android 4.1 Jelly Bean installed on your Galaxy S III yet?
