Here is a custom ROM namely crDroid v3.8.3 that comes with Android 7.1.2 Nougat that can be flashed on Samsung Galaxy S3 I9300 device.

Some who have tested the custom ROM say the ROM is stable enough and work nearly good on Samsung Galaxy S3 I9300. If you have the smartphone on your hand, then you probably want to give the Android 7.1.2 crDroid v3.8.3 Nougat ROM a try. And of course to flash this ROM you need to have a custom recovery installed, I recommend TWRP recovery.  Since this is a custom ROM then your device will no longer be detected by Samsung KIES and there is a chance you might brick your device so all the risks are yours to bear if you decide to proceed. And please to follow the guides entirely without skipping any steps.
