London: Samsung has reportedly suspended software update to its Galaxy S3 handsets in the UK after users who updated to the latest Jelly Bean OS complained of multiple issues.

The download to the Android 4.3 was made available about a fortnight ago, but users started reporting issues related to higher battery drain, failure with some apps.

According to the BBC, the South Korean mobile manufacturer said that it was now investigating the matter and would resume the upgrading service after fixing the issue.

The Galaxy S3 was first released in May 2012 operating on Android 4.0, and the company issued a 4.1 update but never offered the 4.2 update, making the latest release the first for the handset since the start of the year.
