Samsung Galaxy S III Sapphire Black

Today, we have some great news regarding the international model of the Samsung Galaxy S III as well as some of the manufacturers’ other devices.  First, the international Galaxy S III is going to receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update starting today.  The first market to officially receive the update push is Poland.

Unfortunately, the Android 4.1 roll out is subject to market conditions and carrier requirements, which means the update for American Galaxy S III models could be further down the road.  Hopefully, the remaining carriers and Samsung are able to work closely together in order to get the updates out as soon as possible.  New features for the Galaxy S III in Android 4.1 includes improved Pop up play, blocking calls mode, and an easy mode.

In addition, Samsung announced another ten devices that are scheduled to receive Android Jelly Bean in the near future.  These devices include Samsung Galaxy S II, Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II LTE, Galaxy Ace 2, Galaxy Chat, Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, Galaxy Ace Plus, Galaxy S Advance, Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, Galaxy Beam, and Galaxy Mini 2.

Hopefully all of the devices mentioned above will receive the highly anticipated Android 4.1 update in the near future.
