Here is one more bit of evidence that Samsung Galaxy S III owners don’t have much longer until an official Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) update is made available for their phones. As we posted early this morning, the rumored date for the update to roll out is August 29th, but it looks like at least one lucky S3 owner has already gotten a leaked version of the new stock TouchWiz-based ROM.
Sorry, U.S. owners, as this is the international Galaxy S III (I9300), but that doesn’t mean you should completely disregard this video. I’d imagine it won’t be long before our carrier-branded devices get the same treatment, and I’ll be making a similar video myself.
Take a look at the 10-minute video spotted by GSMArena below:
As you can see, the UI looks pretty much the same as Ice Cream Sandwich, but the notification bar has been improved, as well as a ton of other Jelly Bean-specific features.
Unfortunately, we don’t have a link for anything that you can flash for yourself just yet, but I’d imagine it won’t be long before something pops up on one of your favorite Android development forums. As always, we’ll keep our eyes peeled, so be sure to check back often.
