Samsung, however, will be rolling out the Android v4.1 update for the Galaxy S3 users after the issues are resolved; but those of you can’t/don’t want to wait, might head over to Settings>> About Device>> Software Update to grab the (OTA) update. I would rather suggest you to hold off to this upgrade until the South Korean giant confirm it officially. Stay tuned for more on the matter.
