Samsung Releases Jelly Bean Source Code For International Galaxy S3 LTE (i9305)


October is fixin’ to be a big month for Android. We have loads of device releases (and rumored releases), not to mention Samsung announcing that Jelly Bean would be soon making its way over to their Galaxy S3 flagship in the form of an over-the-air update. If you had any doubt Samsung’s software engineers were on top of things, they’ve recently released the kernel source for the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE GT-i9305 (not to be confused with the HSPA+ version). While that may mean little to most of you, those with rooted versions of the quad-core international Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE can look forward to more stable custom ROMs and kernels from the developer community.

What’s more, the Galaxy S3 will launch this month in Singapore, pre-loaded with Jelly Bean right out of the box. When it comes to the US version of the Galaxy S3, which of the “big 4” carriers will be able to claim firsties to a Jelly Bean rollout remains to be seen, but the race is most certainly on.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
