Samsung started the Android 4.1 upgrading process for its most popular device, the Galaxy S3 since October, but the circle is still not closed. Most S3 versions across Europe and Asia are rocking Jelly Bean for weeks or even months, though the US roll-out has been much more sluggish.

AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile have all been slow in releasing the upgrade, while Verizon is yet to join the fun altogether. However, according to a fresh new report, Big Red is finally ready to issue its own software “patch”, possibly starting tomorrow, on December 14.

The biggest carrier stateside has already posted a document detailing the upgrade on its support page, so it definitely shouldn’t be long, though for some reason Verizon officials are still very quiet on the matter.

Oddly, the new software package is said to be weighing in at 62 MB, which sounds a bit on the light side. Hopefully, that doesn’t mean the upgrade will lack any of the usual JB buttery treats and that Verizon is thinking ahead towards Android 4.2.
