Of course, this Android 4.1 Jelly Bean path for the Galaxy S III could become more windy as time goes on. However, as of right now, it appears as though Verizon is working hard to get this update out to its device.

This news comes shortly after we heard that the Samsung Galaxy S III Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update was in the works and that we could see a roll out take place in either August or September.
