[Updated] The tipster that sent us the report has informed us that the Galaxy S3 that received the Jelly Bean update has actually been shipped from Romania (one of the markets that received the update already). We apologize for the confusion and we’ll keep you posted with any developments.
There is no shortage of Jelly Bean-related Samsung Galaxy S3 news today. Earlier we received word that Jelly Bean on the Galaxy S3 has started rolling out to France, Spain, Romania and Austria. We even reported that Canadian Galaxy S3 owners will get Jelly Bean before the holidays, though the United States may have to wait until 2013.
As you can see, there is a lot going on. Amid all of this, Android Authority has now received a tip – and several photos - from a New Zealand user that has received a Jelly Bean update for the international Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300.
There is a lot to be excited for with Jelly Bean. For starters, Google Now adds a voice-powered search experience that can even predict what you need before you ask it, such as weather information. The more you use Google Now, the better it gets. There is also a predictive keyboard, an improved camera and speed improvements thanks to Project Butter.
It is at least a little surprising that it has taken this long to push Jelly Bean out to the Galaxy S3 owners across the globe. On the other hand, better late than never. Anyone else receive an update of their international GT-I9300?

My samsung s3 just downloaded the 4.1 system and asked me to update!
Just this morning received update on Samsung Galaxy S3 4.1.1 (I9300XXDLIF) the phone works really well.
I’m in New Zealand, heard that one of my mates had gotten the update but mine is still telling me there is no update :( looks like I’ll have to be a bit more patient
My update downloaded but ever since my Microsoft exchange email for work won’t stop syncing. Reloaded the account and still doing it? Anyone else
I brought my phone recently and it has done its first update to jelly bean. Nothing but issues. Experiencing lag during basic tasks even motion sensing to flip the screen sideways is slower than it used to be.
The new filters on the camera are a nice suprise as I’m no longer using instagram. Not sure its worth all my other hassles though.
Guess I have to hold out for another update.
i just updated mine to the jelly bean one and i live in NZ
I live in new zealand and im running 4.1.2 on my s3 mini runs beautifully
