Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean 60MB (updated)

By Daniel Chubb - Sep 11, 2012

We just had an email in the last hour from one of our readers, and they claim the Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update is live and they are downloading right now. We cannot confirm this and they asked not to be named, but we can tell you it is for a Galaxy S3 handset in Germany and the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update weighs in at around 60MB.

It is interesting this firmware update is coming today considering we thought Samsung might want the focus on Galaxy S3 during Apple’s iPhone event tomorrow, although the rollout might take a few days to reach users in different countries, so it is likely to include the Apple event day.

Check your Samsung Galaxy S3 for a Jelly Bean update; do you see the new Android 4.1 firmware? If you have the update then please share a comment with the country your in, location, and what time it first appeared. Currently we have only heard from this one email, so it could be one user having some fun by emailing us and other technology websites. We’ll update you if we hear from any other sources later today.

Yesterday we reported that the Jelly Bean leaks for Samsung Galaxy S3 were some of the most stable yet, and this had been a sign towards Android 4.1 releasing anytime soon, so with this in mind it seems like our source might be right and we could be seeing a rollout across Europe at least.

We have also heard from a few people on other Android devices like the Galaxy Nexus, and Verizon customers want Jelly Bean launched on their device before it comes to Galaxy S3 users in the United States. At the time of writing we haven’t heard anything from our US readers in relation to Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean being live.

Update: We’ve seen a couple of other blogs reporting a similar story, so this is either the same user sending emails to different tech blogs, or we are in fact seeing the rollout of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update. Keep connected to PR as we keep you updated on the update process.

Update 2: It seems our initial guess had been right, and this is a tip from a user that is sending the same thing to different tech blogs, which now looks to be fake. Unless we see a number of other S3 users stating Jelly Bean is rolling out, then it looks like this is fake and we won’t see the update until much later this month or more likely in OCT.

    My S3 just performed an update yesterday, however, it wasn’t the Jelly Bean update. It simply said that the update would increase stability. So i’m still running ICS. Todays date is October 8…..still no update:/ I’m starting to lose hope. From U.S.

    Had a 60MB update come directly through on my S3 this morning… It uploaded, installed, rebooted… And no change. So I’m guessing perhaps it was Samsung’s update in direct preparation for an imminent Jelly Bean rollout??? I hope so anyway.
