Jelly Bean Leaked for the International Galaxy S III
Just yesterday we posted about Android 4.1 Jelly Bean potentially making its way to the Samsung Galaxy S III by the 29th of this month and how it was strange that no test builds have yet leaked. As luck would have it, a leaked build of Jelly Bean for the device has now appeared for the device, which is great news for anyone looking forward to Google’s latest tasty treat.
Brought to us by SamMobile (the same guys who predicted the 29th as the OTA release date) and posted to XDA by Recognized Developer Faryaab, this is test build XXDLG4 targeted at the international version of the device.

There's also new information about more applications and system interface features revealed in the same thread: The alleged S6 statusbar and panel are ported to the...
