Surprise surprise! Samsung and Sprint have started rolling out the official Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S III in the United States. It was only recently that Samsung started rolling out the Jelly Bean update for the international Galaxy S3, so such a quick JB update for the Sprint Galaxy S3 is quite surprising.
The Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update for the U.S Galaxy S3 will bring it with an enhanced notification bar, Project Butter for a buttery UI navigating experience, offline text-to-speech support, Google Now with enhanced Voice Search, Android Beam, updated keyboard with next-word predictions and much more.
The update is being rolled out via OTA, and users will be automatically notified once the update is available for their phone.
U.S carriers are known for delaying OS or software updates to Android devices through their internal carrier testing, but it looks like Sprint decided it would be nice to give some priority treatment to its Galaxy S3 owners for the Jelly Bean update.
