Sprint is the first US carrier to roll out Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean to Samsung's Galaxy S III, with the over the air update available starting today. In addition to the usual upgrades that come along with Jelly Bean, the device has received enhancements to its camera and the Pop Up Play feature. Also included in the update is a new Easy Mode for simplifying the home screens, Blocking Mode so users can disable calls and notifications for a designated period of time, and more keyboard options, including Swype. Additionally, owners will have access to One Touch NFC Pairing and the AllShare Cast Wireless Hub for mirroring to HDTVs or HDMI displays.

Last week, Samsung stated that the US versions of its flagship will be getting Android 4.1 "in the coming months," and it looks like the company is keeping to its promise — hopefully this means that the remaining carriers will be delivering Jelly Bean in the near future as well.
