Galaxy S III SGH-i747 OTA Available for Telus, Bell, and Rogers
For those who love to receive updates to their mobile devices, the Telus, Bell and Rogers versions of the Samsung Galaxy S III (SGS-I747M) are currently getting a maintenance OTA update from Samsung.
The update purportedly brings improved stability, bug fixes, better battery life, and screen brightness adjustments available via the notification bar. The baseband is I747MVLLH1 with the OS Build being IMM76D.I747MVLALH1 (Android 4.0.4). There is currently no word on if the AT&T version will be receiving an OTA or not.
For those currently running a stock, unrooted ROM you should be receiving an OTA notification, but if not you can always check manually via Settings > About Device > Software Update. If you are running a rooted ROM then you will need to wait for a developer to package the update for you.
Head on over to the discussion thread to chime in or follow for the latest notifications.
