Customers of O2 and Vodafone that own a Samsung Galaxy S3 handset should be able to start downloading the Android Jelly Bean 4.1 update from Monday.
The update will bring a wealth of new features including an improved browser, a faster interface thanks to the Project Butter technology and Google's active location recommendation feature, Google Now.
"Samsung UK can confirm that the roll out of Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) has begun for our Galaxy S3 customers and will be available across all networks over the coming weeks, pending software testing and approvals," a spokesperson for the firm confirmed.
Writing on a Vodafone forum a community manager confirmed that the update was now available for customers on the network but was being released in batches so not all users would receive it straightaway.
"The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will be made available for Samsung Galaxy S3 handsets purchased from Vodafone on Monday," he said.
"The update will be a staggered release, meaning customers will be notified in batches that it's available for over the air download over the course of several days. If you choose to download it over the air, we'd recommend using Wi-Fi as the file size is substantial."
O2 also confirmed the update was now available on a forum posting.
