    Dear,
    yeah that is right.
    Of course you can update you S3 with the next Android os named as Jelly bean , when it will be launched.
    Definately s3 will support it becasue it comes with great hardwares
    .
    But still ICS is new in market. So no prediction about the releasing date of Jelly bean for the S3.
    We can expect it in near future, very soon.
    Thank you.!

    Hello friend,

    Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was released recently through the new Google Nexus tab.
    Jelly Bean is not only the latest version, but also the fastest and smoothest one so far.
    By looks, it is almost identical to ICS but performance-wise it is far more ahead.

    Galaxy S III is Samsung's flagship phone and the most anticipated phone of 2012.
    So it is but obvious that it would be one of the first devices to receive Jelly Bean update.
    Reports say that Samsung will release the update in the fourth quarter of 2012.
    But nothing as such is officially announced by Samsung.

    It is expected that un-official Jelly Bean ROM's are going to be released much earlier than that.
    Steve Kondik and his team, the developers of the most famous un-official ROM for Android: CyanogenMod, are already working on their latest project which might be named CyanogenMod 10, which will be based on Jelly Bean.
    But they also said that CM10 will only be released after they release a stable version of CM9 which is ICS.

    So you can wait for the official update, which is rumored to be released in the 4th quarter or you can root your device and install un-official ROM's like CyanogenMod.
    CyanogenMod ROM's have proved to be much superior than custom ROM's both in terms of looks and performance.

    Regards!

    hi friend,

    it is true that the the google anounced the new version of Icecream sandwich (ICS) as JELLY BEAN which is the codename of
    ANDROID 4.1....
    but yet google donot shed light on the question that all smartphones in which ICS is running able to run JELLY BEAN....

    the GALAXY S3 engineers are also not sure about the final requirements of JELLYBEAN so engineers are increasing the
    RAM of S3 from 1GB to 2GB in some models so that they will easily support JELLY BEAN...

    best of luck......

    Samsung did got give any direct comment on the Release date for the SIII instead they told that they will analyse the New OS on all the aspects and then only any update will be confirmed. It might be expected that the Samsung Galaxy S3 may have a update in Q4 of this year and it has to be taken with a pinch of salt.
    Hope this Helps.

    Hi there,

    Yes, SAMSUNG GALAXY SIII mobile is compatible with ANDROID 4.1 JELLY BEANS.

    Presently SAMSUNG GALAXY SIII is coming with ANDROID ICS 4.0 version but according to its configuration , it can support JELLYBEANS 4.1
    It will get an update for the same.

    ANDROID 4.1 JELLYBEAN has not been launched/released till now. But it is expected to be out at the last of OCTOBER.
    And the SAMSUNG GALAXY SIII update is also coming after that.



    Regards!!
