Jelly Bean coming to Samsung Galaxy Beam?
But on Monday, a published report said that the model was being tested ahead of an update to Android 4.1.2. Yes, that's right. This phone with the built in projector is too cool for school, so it apparently is being skipped ahead to Jelly Bean without even spending a day powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Those who have tested the firmware update say that the phone runs smoother than ever and battery life is extended.
The report has the update occurring at the end of this month (we are now in July in case you've forgotten) and will bring the responsiveness of Project Butter, the information you need when you need it with Google Now, and the time saving actionable notifications.

this is praise worthy. jelly bean for a phone that has not reportedly sold much. samsung's recent record in software updates has been surprisingly good

actually, the model was slated for jelly bean update, a long time ago.
but never came.
imo, the galaxy beam doesn't lag at all on GB (dunno how that's possible, but i guess its the dual-core novathor should be appreciated here). one can only imagine how good the phone will become after JB update.
