The Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean update leaked out again, yet another sign that Samsung could actually be very close to rolling out the update as promised.
Over the past few weeks, ahead of Samsung’s IFA event in Berlin, several Jelly Bean test builds have leaked to the surface for international Galaxy S III owners.
T-Mobile’s Galaxy S III also saw a Jelly Bean leak as well though the other four variants on AT&T, Sprint, U.S. Cellular and Verizon have yet to see any software come up to the surface.
Over the weekend, another Jelly Bean test build leaked out, courtesy of SamMobile, and again this version is for owners of the I9300 model of the Galaxy S III. That’s the international version. The build is I9300XXDLI1 and it looks like the build is the most stable build yet.
Apparently, this build is almost perfect and that could be a sign that Samsung is indeed ready to roll this update out to customers.
At its IFA event where it announced the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Samsung promised Jelly Bean for the Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 10.1 “very soon.” It did not specify when it would roll out the updates but considering the Galaxy S III Jelly Bean update has leaked out numerous times, we have no reasons to doubt Samsung at this point as it’s clear that it’s hard at work.
Keep in mind, this leaked version is a test version of the software which means that it’s not the official version that Samsung is going to be rolling out to owners in the future. That means that only those who are knowledgeable about installing unofficial software will want to take the plunge.
Those who are not as skilled will want to wait for the official roll out which is likely to take place sometime in the next few weeks if everything goes according to plan at Samsung.
Of course, owners of the American variants of the device should expect the software much later as U.S. carriers aren’t especially quick to getting their devices updated with the latest Android software.
