Santa brings Jelly Bean to Telstra's Galaxy S3 and One X on Vodafone and Optus

Two smartphones in Australia are getting upgraded to Jelly Bean today; the Samsung Galaxy S3 on Telstra and the HTC One X on Vodafone and Optus. Have you gotten yours?
December 19, 2012

Close to a month after the arrival of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on Samsung Galaxy S3 on Vodafone, customers of Telstra who sport the flagship phone can now join the buttery smooth party, with the carrier confirming that the OTA update is being gradually rolled out “over a two-week period” starting today.

The Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S3 comes in at 295MB in size. Hence, it has been advised to download the new firmware via WiFi to save your precious data allowance. The software package will also be available to download via Kies.

Meanwhile, those who own the Vodafone-branded HTC One X will also get to flaunt JB before the New Year. Vodafone has started rolling out the software update that will bring Android 4.1 and several bug fixes today. Unlike Telstra, the operator will not charge customers for downloading the package via mobile network – as long as you’re in the country and use the Vodafone Live! APN.

We’ve also heard that Optus One X users can also expect to see the Jelly Bean update notification today.

We’d love to hear whether you’ve seen the Jelly Bean updates or not on your Galaxy S3 and One X. Any problems upgrading the phone? Thoughts after installing JB? Don’t be shy to leave some comments below.
