U.S. Cellular rolled out the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S3 users in March. The update was also made available for Verizon users that same month.

As for an Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 (GT-i19300), the update has become available via custom ROM. The CM10.1 ROM is only for the international variant of the Samsung Galaxy S3, which runs on the Exynos processor. Among the improvements are lock screen gadgets, a new camera app, Google Now and more.
