Samsung Galaxy S III

Time to cross another carrier off of the Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean update wait list, as T-Mobile today announced that its S III is now getting bumped up to Android 4.1.1. A support page on T-Mobile's website has revealed that starting today, November 14, the Galaxy S III's Jelly Bean update will begin rolling out over the air and will also be available through Samsung's Kies software. The update will bring users to software version T999UVLJA and weighs in at 344MB. Along with the usual, butter-flavored Jelly Bean enhancements, this update also includes goodies like improvements to Wi-Fi calling and the camera. T-Mo's bulleted list of details about the update is at the bottom of this post (with typos about the Android version).

Samsung announced in mid-October that the U.S. Galaxy S III variants would be receiving their Jelly Bean updates "in the coming months," and Sprint's version was the first to be bumped up a little over a week later. There are still more models that are waiting for their own update, though, as the AT&T, MetroPCS, U.S. Cellular and Verizon S IIIs are all still on Ice Cream Sandwich. Considering Samsung's broad "coming months" update timeframe and the fact that some carriers are known for taking their time with releasing updates, it'll be interesting to see when those variants receive Jelly Bean.

As for you T-Mobile folk, you can head on into Settings > About device > Software update on your S III or fire up Kies to get your Jelly Bean on right now. Be sure to let us know once you get Android 4.1.1 up and running!
