Samsung have now released a firmware update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 here in the UK (see bootnote). It’s a 1MB XXLH1 firmware update via Over The Air (OTA). Which means you cannot update using Wi-Fi. 🙁 Samsung are referring to this update for the S3 as a stability update.
I’ve looked for an official change log but couldn’t find one, but some of my colleagues suspect that this update improves the wireless performance. The Galaxy S3 XXLH1 firmware update may also be preparing the S3 for Android 4.1, also known as Jelly Bean. Jelly Bean, Google’s latest Android mobile operating system is rumoured to be rolled out on the S3 later this month (August).
If you are not seeing this update then you can always do the following:
- Pull down the notification bar
- Click the ‘Settings’ sprocket
- Scroll down and click ‘About device’
- Click ‘Software update’
Safe surfing folks!
Bootnote: Samsung expect to roll out this firmware update to other countries in due course.
