EE (formerly known as Everything Everywhere), the new British mobile operator which launched its 4G LTE network today, might become the first to start selling the Samsung Galaxy S III with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean – as you should already know, the S III is currently running Android 4.0 ICS.
Pocket-lint has received a document which confirms that the Galaxy S III will be released by EE with Jelly Bean on board. And while it’s not exactly clear when the handset will be available, it should happen pretty soon. Which means that those 20 million S III units sold around the world until now should be updated to Jelly Bean soon, too (but it’s not like we didn’t know this would happen).
EE also said it’s going to offer the S III in titanium grey, and Pocket-lint managed to photograph this version, which is already running Android Jelly Bean:
The titanium grey Samsung Galaxy S III will be exclusive to EE for the UK market.
