It doesn’t get any fresher than this, Galaxy S3 owners! A Galaxy S3 Android 4.1 Jelly Bean over-the-air (OTA) build dated September 3 has been leaked – version I9300XXDLI1 – which means the official ROM must be on its way.
Samsung announced last week at its Berlin-based IFA 2012 Unpacked event that the Galaxy S3, the Galaxy Note 10.1 and Galaxy Note will be updated soon to Jelly Bean, without revealing any release dates. Moreover, the Black Galaxy S3 LTE version coming to Vodafone Germany in the following weeks/months, has been spotted running Jelly Bean at the German trade show.
xda-developers, via Samsung-Updates, now offers interested users the latest Jelly Bean build for the Galaxy S3 – and we already showed you a variety of Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean leaks in the recent weeks that were dated back to July and August. Unfortunately, and just like its predecessors, this Jelly Bean update is only available to international Galaxy S3 owners, so don’t get all too excited.
That doesn’t mean we’re encouraging you to install the unofficial Android 4.1.1 build on your Galaxy S3 if you rock an international version, especially considering the official thing is days away. But since you’re free to do whatever you want with your device, at least make sure you backup you data before going forward with upgrade plans, and follow the available instructions over on the forums.
