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!
