Verizon Samsung Galaxy S III Now Receiving Jelly Bean Update

Android Jelly Bean

A report surfaced the other day claiming that Verizon would be pushing out the update to Jelly Bean for Samsung Galaxy S III owners. Good news folks, it’s been pushed out as we speak. The update is a whopping 400MB. After the install, you’ll be sitting at Android 4.1.1 build JRO03L.I535VRBLK3.

We’re almost sure we don’t need to remind you of what Jelly Bean has to offer. But for those who still don’t know, Android 4.1.1 brings features like Google Now, improvements to the notification panel, Project Butter, which improves the hardware under the hood. There are a plethora of improvements, but those are just some of the most notable ones.The update on Verizon’s network will also ready the Galaxy S III for the ISIS mobile payment system, which is a competitor to Google Wallet. Albeit, it’s pretty much worthless unless you live in Austin, Texas or Salt Lake City, Utah.

The Galaxy S III’s camera also got a few modifications as well, including the addition of filters — something you probably don’t care about if you’re an avid Instagram user (or have any sort of Instagram-like app on your smartphone).
