AT&T Samsung Galaxy S III Getting Android 4.1 Update via Kies

Posted on Dec 3 2012 - 9:54pm by Brad Ward

Users here in the United States upset about Canada receiving the update to Android 4.1 for the Galaxy S III will be ecstatic to here that some users have been receiving the update via Samsung Kies for the AT&T Galaxy S III. There’s no hints or indication as to whether this would be an OTA package in the near future, but users that can not wait any longer can go with the Kies software.

Now that AT&T is releasing the update, it’s only a matter of time before Verizon Wireless starts releasing theirs as well. Although, who knows how much longer Big Red could take on releasing Jelly Bean. We all know how long it took them to release the update for the Google Nexus device, which was terrible as it was a nexus device.

Are any of you spotting the Android 4.1 update for the Samsung Galaxy S III? Are you seeing any reports of the same update for Verizon Galaxy S III’s? Make sure to let us know in the comments below!

    I switched to the Iphone so I would no longer have to deal with the ridiculous crap. Every android phone has its own quirks and bloatware that delays releases and had people scrambling to figure out how to get and early update… Every carrier turns it into a different phone.

    Update keeps closing my internet browser. Doesn’t matter what browser I use. Surfing the net four about four minutes before it closes, very frustrating. Verizon user.

  • Johnny

    On Verizon. Internet browser keeps closing unexpectedly, since the update. Not happy.

    LOL “switched to the Iphone”… yep, we believe you.

  • Joel

    Thats why you root. You could have had this update about 2 months ago without the browser bug. Cheers

    I can confirm this is true. It took quite a while, but it was very hands-free. Upgraded to 4.1.1., and I just finished setting up Google Now on my S3. Sweet!

    I hear ya. That’s one of the nice things about iOS and (usually) stock Android.

    Verizon and AT&T have been the worse with their updates as of late.

    I’m happy to have all of the great choice of ROMs that I have with Android. With iOS, you’re stuck with one flavor and a boatload of restrictions on how what you can do with your phone. With Android, the sky’s the limit. Of course, there are always those who want to be baby-fed and iOS is fine for them.
