You know how we told you that the U.S. Jelly Bean update for the local Galaxy S3 versions may be less exciting for some carriers? And that Sprint’s Galaxy S3 version will be updated at some point this year? Well it turns out that Sprint is indeed ready to let its Galaxy S3 buyers upgrade their handsets to Android 4.1.


Compared to other regions, Samsung Galaxy S3 owners in the UK are enjoying a relatively swift and pain-free software upgrade to Jelly Bean. Starting with Three, the Android 4.1 update then made its way to O2 and Vodafone subscribers. If you own an unbranded version of the handset, the time to make that jump to the latest and greatest Android OS is here.


Owners of the Galaxy Note will soon have a taste of Android 4.1 on their device, as the Jelly Bean dump for the original phablet has made its way online. While it contains most things you expect to get from the new software, the kernel isn’t 100% safe, and there are several things missing from the system.
