The Verizon Galaxy S3 Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, which was yesterday approved by Verizon for roll out, will officially start rolling out in phases starting tomorrow, December 14th.
Verizon confirmed today that the Verizon Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update will start rolling out to owners starting tomorrow though it did not specify exactly what time the roll out would begin. Per usual, Verizon says that the update will be rolling out in phases which means that it will roll out slowly over the course of a few days and then roll out to all Galaxy S3 owners shortly thereafter.
Those who own the Galaxy S3 who don’t see the update roll out tomorrow should remain patient as it often takes a week or more for the update to roll out in its entirety. Obviously, it’s not the most optimal way of rolling out, but rest assured, the update is coming.
The confirmation comes a day after Verizon approved the Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update for roll out and it comes awhile after Sprint became the first major U.S. carrier to offer the update to Galaxy S3 owners. AT&T and T-Mobile also rolled out the Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update to their customers as well. Verizon did however beat U.S. Cellular to the Jelly Bean punch.
Verizon’s Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update will bring all the sweets expected of a Jelly Bean update. That includes Google Now, a new smooth user interface, expanded Notifications, a much better Camera application, and in addition, Verizon will make the Galaxy S3 the next ISIS-supported smartphone which means that it will be able to take advantage of the mobile payment service in areas where it’s available.
Currently, Salt Lake City, Utah and Austin, Texas are the only places where the ISIS platform is live.
Those who own a Galaxy S3 should be on the look out for a prompt tomorrow in regards to the Jelly Bean update and Verizon Galaxy S3 owners who don’t see it arrive tomorrow will want to check for it later in the week.
