The Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean source code was released by Samsung earlier today.
The company released it for the unlocked international version of the Galaxy S3, as the official update to the software is expected to roll out sometime next month.
The source code was found in Samsung's OpenSource website. The code's release does not mean that the Galaxy S3 will be able to run a stable version of the software.
However, it does mean that Samsung is giving developers a chance to create a Jelly Bean ROM of the highest quality for the smartphone. This would mean that is more stable and better than what has already surfaced on the internet.
New Samsung Galaxy S3 colors should be arriving in the near future as Samsung released new photos showing them off.
The smartphone will now come in Garnet Red, Titanium Grey, Amber Brown, and Sapphire Black in addition to the models that are currently available.
The Galaxy S3 launched in White and Pebble Blue, so the addition of the four new colors should boost the company's sales significantly. And with the unveiling of the iPhone 5, Samsung will need something to keep fans interested in what has been the most popular smartphone to be released this year.
"By expanding the color range of the Samsung Galaxy S3, we are continuing to evolve the minimal organic design theme of the handset," said Minhyouk Lee, Vice-President and lead designer of Samsung Galaxy S3.
These new photos feature a front and back shot of the additional colors. The Sapphire Black model resembles the Galaxy S2 and Galaxy S.
The Galaxy S3 was released earlier this year and the smartphone has gone on to sell over 20 million units, according to Samsung which had high hopes for the device at launch.
