Three first to offer Galaxy S III update to its customers
The Samsung Galaxy S III has finally started to roll out in the UK. National carrier Three released the update earlier today, and is the first network in the country to offer the update, with other carriers likely to offer it over the next few days. Aside from checking through Samsung Kies and the handset itself, Three confirmed the update through its own Twitter-based support team.
Customers on Three can update from the handset itself after receiving an on-screen prompt, though with the update measuring in at just under 300 megabytes, it's suggested to do so over Wi-Fi instead of the phone network. It can also be updated through the Samsung Kies desktop software.
Samsung confirmed that the Galaxy S III would receive the update to Jelly Bean in October last month, and rolled out the update to Poland first. Although the update will be available to most markets by the end of this month, the manufacturer yesterday confirmed the update will be with released by individual carriers in the US "in the coming months."
