Samsung's latest and greatest smartphone ought to receive its update to Google's newest version of its mobile OS from next week, with sources claiming Samsung has the "Jelly Bean" code for the S III ready to roll after an event it has scheduled for next week.

According to Android Central, Samsung will reveal the update during the Unpacked event it's hosting in Berlin on August 29th, with the code ready to be pushed out to users, including us here in the UK, very shortly after the announcement.

Meanwhile, a test version of the "Jelly Bean" code has already been uncovered, installed and tested, revealing plenty of new features from Samsung's side, like an updated Notifications bar, a Dormant Mode for managing alerts, the ability to take a screenshot by swiping your palm across the screen and more.
