Although Samsung is still a long way from completing the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S3 around the world, those of you that have gotten a taste of JB might be already thinking about what’s next.
One possible answer would be Android 4.2, expected to be launched next week, but let’s just be real for a moment. Sammy had it so tough with 4.1 that, even if the next iteration of our favorite mobile OS were to come out tomorrow, it’s pretty obvious that the S3 would not get it by, say, February or March 2013. And that’s the best case scenario.
To keep Galaxy S3 users stuck on the same software version by then is also highly improbable, even with Jelly Bean being so darn cool. Ergo, it seems only logical for a maintenance Android 4.1.2 upgrade to be in store, a possibility now confirmed by the guys at SamMobile.
