We wanted to give Samsung’s Die-Hard fans a taste of Jelly Bean before it’s officially released.

OTA Firmware Details:

Samsung has severely ratcheted up the rhetoric with the iPhone5 trash talk..
The new JB firmware for the S3 Galaxy must be a performance speed demon because come the iPhone5 release benchmarks will decide a winner. It look real bad if the 1.02GHz dual core iPhone5 CPU unleashes a can of whup ass on the 1.4GHz Quad Core S3 Galaxy, especially after this smack talk.
Hope the programmers responsible for the S3 Galaxy JB update realize what they are up against…
