The Samsung Galaxy S3 or SIII as it’s also known is readying for the Jelly Bean upgrade. Ever since its launch in June and the Google Android update from Ice Cream Sandwich to Jelly Bean, we’ve been waiting to hear when the Galaxy SIII will receive it. The news cannot come any sooner for those that have the popular Samsung Galaxy S3, not that ICS isn’t good enough but the fact that they have a premium smartphone on a mobile phone contract they expect the very best and when upgrades haven’t been announced yet then it smarts a little.

This month, September, will see the upgrade. We’re not sure on the date yet but it will be in the next 30 days. This is fantastic news for S3 owners who will want to reaffirm their purchase of their cheap mobile phone contract as the iPhone 5 is due out at the end of September too. Android users will most-likely have other devices such as a Galaxy Note or Tab and as the S3 is up there with the premium handsets it deserves the very best and latest operating system that’s out there, and for Google Android devices that’s the Jelly Bean 4.1.

With Windows 8 and iOS6 on its way the need to have a new smartphone is ever present. We have been waiting for the new iPhone for 12 months and for Android lovers, the S3 is still the number handset out there. Ten million handset shipments backs that up in just the first few months of it being on sale so as you can see, if you want the very best you expect the best OS.

There is a raft of Samsung Ativ handsets and devices coming up for sale soon which includes tablet and pocket PC-sized devices. With Windows coming along strongly and Apple winning court cases, the Samsung/Google connection might be dented slightly but as the Jelly Bean is such an awaited upgrade it seems to be a defining moment for Samsung and Android at the moment.

Once the iPhone 5 is launched the smartphone industry will be turned on its head but the faithful Android phone followers will still love their Samsung Galaxy SIII.
