Jelly Bean Only Two Weeks Away For Galaxy S III

By Jon Partridge on at

Jelly Bean for Samsung's lovely Galaxy S III is on the way soon, but it may actually just be round the corner. You now only have to wait a couple of weeks to get your Jelly Bean fix, or you could try out this pre-release now...

SamMobile posted the first pre-release version of the software yesterday, and says that the official update will be rolling its way to handsets at the end of this month and the beginning of next month via KIES and over-the-air. The site also says that the test build has a few new features, such as "Dormant mode", a new clock in the notification bar and a couple of new (snazzy) Live Wallpapers.

If you're installing an unofficial version of the software, you can kiss your warranty goodbye, and you best be careful playing around with the update as SamMobile states that they had a few issues with the pre-release. If you can't wait a couple of weeks for the update to drop officially, then feel free to try out the pre-release -- just remember, you're living on the edge.
