Samsung Galaxy S3 owners in Korea are finally getting a taste of Jelly Bean.

The rollout of Android 4.1 for the S3 starts today in Korea, a Samsung representative confirmed to CNET.

Reaching the 3G and LTE editions of the S3, the Jelly Bean update adds such features as Google Now and new widgets for the home screen.

Samsung has posted a page for Korean users on how to update their S3 phones to the latest Android version.

Android 4.1 landed in Europe late last month for Galaxy S3 owners. Samsung has so far been mum as to when the U.S. and other countries may see the update.

Updated 8:25 a.m. PT with confirmation from Samsung.
