Galaxy S3 Jelly bean Android 4.1.1 is a disappointment in term of release schedule and the JB performance, to me. We hope the next Jelly Bean Android 4.1.2 update will be far better than what we got lately after a long long wait. The Android JB 4.1.2 firmware for Galaxy S3 was leaked out which brings Galaxy Note 2 goodies to SGS3. Samsung has declared that they are preparing firmware upgrade for SGS3 to Android 4.1.2 which could be rolling out by December. The leaked firmware is still under testing and not official. Test it on your own risk!!
