Samsung Galaxy S3

Three months after Android 4.1 came to Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S3, the carrier is now rolling out a newer version of Jelly Bean to the phone, a different build than the one that leaked in early February.

You should be getting an OTA update soon — if you’re lucky — that will bring your Galaxy S3 to Android 4.1.2. The VRBMB1 build is about 150MB in file size, and for those who are wondering, here’s the full change log:

  • Keyboard Predictive Text has been improved
  • Users can take picture while on a call
  • Manual refresh button has been added to lock screen ticker
  • E-mail syncing has been improved
  • Enhanced Bluetooth performance
  • VZ Navigator and Amazon added to stub applications

Granted, it’s not the major update that you’ve probably been waiting for. Think of it as a starter meal before Verizon takes you to the grand feast that is Android 4.2 and beyond.

Let us know below if you’ve received the Android 4.1.2 update on your device.
