From the looks of it, Samsung’s (005930) flagship Galaxy S III smartphone may be among the first non-Nexus Android devices to be updated to Jelly Bean. According to a YouTube video from AndroidMX, the South Korean manufacturer’s Jelly Bean update is rather far along and could be arriving sooner than we once thought. The video walk-through reveals that Samsung’s update will have almost no visual changes thanks to the TouchWiz user interface, but it will include enhanced notifications and Google Now. The company previously promised that a Jelly Bean update would be available by the end of August, although it did not indicate which markets would receive the update first. The video showing Jelly Bean running on A Galaxy S III can be seen below.
