Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S III available now

Just yesterday, we told you that Verizon has approved an official update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for its Samsung Galaxy S III. And now the carrier is already rolling out the update (the same day when AT&T’s Motorola Atrix HD and Sprint’s HTC Evo 4G are also getting Jelly Bean).

The update has 400MB in size (not 62MB, as previously reported), and – among others – it brings: improved notifications system, Google Now, Google Maps with “voice typing”, S-Voice enhancements, support for Isis Mobile Wallet, resizable widgets, updated Visual Voicemail, new Photo Effect filters, and so on.

In case you need to read the Software Update Instructions, or want to see the benefits of the upgrade in detail, Verizon’s Support webpage is the place to visit.

Verizon is the last major US carrier to update its Galaxy S III to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. In case you’re wondering, the handset will obviously get the newer Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, too, but this should happen sometime early next year.
