    [Rumor] Samsung's Galaxy S III May to Get Jelly Bean in the Fourth Quarter


    According to a new rumor, the new Samsung Flagship, the Galaxy S III may be one of the first non-Nexus-style devices to get Android 4.1/Jelly Bean, and it will likely happen as early as Q4 of this year. Of course, the device will likely still have TouchWiz as well, and that is the primary reason why it may take a few months. Earlier, we reported that the Nexus S will officially be getting the Jelly Bean update, and of course the other Nexus devices like the G-Nex will as well.

    It's not surprising, yet is still appreciated to see that Samsung may be moving quickly to bring Jelly Bean to the SGS3.

    Thanks for the tip, Astrix!

    I wonder if Motorola phones will get JB earlier, since ICS on their phones is so close to stock.

    Doubtful... Motorola runs motoblur instead of touchwiz, plus look how long it has taken them to get ics on the razor.

    Well with the Android pdk coming out for manufacturers, It should make getting the newest updates to Android faster.

    Actually, for a phone that isn't in consumer's hands yet for many people in the US, 4th quarter doesn't sound that impressive to me. Aren't new release phones (Incredible 4G) starting to ship with ICS now?

    Yes, and the S III is shipping with ICS. This is talking about Jelly Bean 4.1 if you had read the op.

    Dont take this the wrong way....but maybe you missed this part?

    Has stock ICS app drawer for the most part, stock launcher for the most part, lots of stock ICS shines thru on ICS for the RAZR.... I'm guessing thats why tjk629 made that statement.

    And...seeing as it has ICS officially before the Rezound and other phones with similar specs released around the same time on other carriers...I wouldnt just brush off Motorola and update quickness. If you look at it from all 4 carriers...Motorola isnt too bad with updates, support.
    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

    This may be accurate, but I have had the droid x for a long time now. It was always loaded with blur and bloat. I can't speak as to samsung's updates. However, I know the S3 will be unlockable and I will not have to rely on samsung for my updates. Unfortunately for motorola owner's, they will never have this luxury.

    See so far I see you based your comment on:

    The Droid X1, that has a totally different version of Blur.

    Boot loaders.

    Even with the boot loader situation with Motorola phones, many had an ICS ROM before the official OTA.
