Samsung has officially unleashed Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean to the international variant of the Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300. The said upgrade, which is for software version XXDLIB, is primarily intended for the Poland region (which also covers Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom), but it reportedly works for any GT-I9300. The firmware update is for unbranded, non-carrier-locked devices.
Official updates will expectedly start rolling out for the other regions and carriers in the next few days.
Not that the Galaxy S3 is performing poorly on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich — it does! — but the upgrade to Jelly Bean will make the quad-core beast become more beastly in its performance. The official Jelly Bean upgrade for the GT-I9300 brings Project Butter (read: crazy-smooth display and performance) to the phone, plus a modified Settings menu, a new and more functional Notifications bar, Google Now, and several other goodies that will make you lick your lips.
