Sprint has beaten its rivals AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile to the punch, by rolling out the Android 4.1.1 aka Jelly Bean, update to the Samsung Galaxy S III. A few weeks ago, Samsung made the announcement that they were going to rollout the update in the coming months, but it looks like Sprint was the quickest to the draw, having their update ready within weeks, not months. It appears the update is rolling out slowly, with not many people reporting the update as showing up on their phones, when manually trying to retrieve the update from the system settings menu.
With Android 4.1.1, Sprint Galaxy S III customers will finally get to experience Google Now, new camera enhancements, the expandable notifications, automatic widget re-sizing and of course, project butter, for super smooth performance. On top of Jelly Bean, Samsung will of course cover it with TouchWiz, which will also be updated with new features.
