Samsung has begun rolling out the Android ‘Jelly Bean’ 4.1 update for its flagship Galaxy S III handset, beginning in eastern Europe. Early on Monday morning, the first forum reports emerged of the update becoming available in Poland, through Samsung’s Kies synchronisation software. Other eastern European countries such as Romania also seem to be getting the update, according to the SamMobile blog, which broke the news. The manufacturer had previously predicted the Jelly Bean update would come out in October, so the release is early. Read the full story at ZDNet.
