Samsung Galaxy S III getting Android 4.1 in South Korea

Samsung Galaxy S III getting Android 4.1 in South Korea

Samsung has started updating the Galaxy S III with Jelly Bean in its own backyard. Initially, the new software is released for the 3G model but the 4G one (with LTE connectivity support) should follow shortly. Moreover, the Galaxy Note will also be included in the update soon.

According to the Korean company, the updated firmware comes with improved graphics performance, faster web browsing, Google Now, Free Style Widget, expandable and actionable notification panel, and more.

At the moment, interested Koreans can’t get Jelly Bean over-the-air — rather they’ll either have to connect their Galaxy S III to a computer and flash it with Kies, or bring the device to Samsung Digital Plaza or Samsung Mobile Shop and let professionals handle the process.

Now that its own backyard has been served, we hope that the rest of the world will follow…
