Samsung Confirms Galaxy S III Jelly Bean Update for October

Ever since Google released the source code for its Android 4.1 operating system, Android fanatics have waited anxiously for updates to their smartphones. Now it looks like owners of one of today's hottest selling Android devices won't have to wait much longer.

Last month, Samsung announced its completion of the internal testing phase for its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update on the Samsung Galaxy S III. During IFA 2012, the company said the update was coming "very soon".

Now, Samsung has finally spilled the beans and announced the update will come in October. Additionally, Galaxy S II owners will receive the Android 4.1 update sometime in November.

Though no specific release date was given, we can probably expect the Galaxy S III update earlier on in the month. Several leaks of test builds have already made their rounds on the internet, showcasing Samsung's hard work. The latest of which is described as "very much near perfect".

If you can't wait for October to roll around, or if you'd like to check out the latest test build, head on over to SamMobile to download the leaked build.
