Over the past few weeks, the Verizon Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update has leaked out numerous times. We’ve also seen the update roll out to Galaxy S3 models on AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, Verizon’s biggest competitors. And now, there are two more signs that the Verizon Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update release date could be extremely close to rolling out to owners across the United States.
Two new little tidbits of information in regards to the Verizon Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update have cropped up today courtesy of Droid-Life. The first, is a rumor that states that the Galaxy S3 update has been approved internally by Verizon and that it could start rolling out on December 14th. That is this Friday. This far, Verizon has not communicated anything to owners about the update and that means that the December 14th date is up in the air.
However, given everything that has taken place in the last couple of weeks with the leaks and the roll outs by Verizon’s competition, it’s a date that certainly remains a possible roll out date.
What’s more is that Verizon seems to already think the Galaxy S3 has its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, judging by the landing page for the device on its website. Under the Android tab on its product page, the Galaxy S3 is seemingly running Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, an operating system that it has yet to acquire.
On the page, we see that Verizon thinks that the Galaxy S3 has Expanded Notifications, Google Now, and improved Voice Search. Problem is, these are features that come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
This could definitely be a sign that something is on the way, or it could be that Verizon was just careless with their website and is now advertising something that doesn’t exist yet on its version of the phone. It’s entirely unclear. Hopefully, it’s a sign of good things to come though as Verizon definitely has some catching up to do in terms of the Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update.
