Samsung’s IFA 2012 keynote, confirmed that Jelly Bean or Android 4.1 would finally be released for the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note tablet 10.1. According to Engadget Samsung said a Jelly Bean update is coming to both the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note 10.1 “very soon.”

Samsung didn’t mention if the original Galaxy Note was also getting the Jelly Bean update. For now many are assuming that this device too will get the update. Earlier this month, a video showing a Galaxy S III with Jelly Bean loaded on it, was leaked online. You can watch the video at the end of this post.

So what should Galaxy S III users hope for with Jelly Bean?
