Jelly Bean coming to the Nexus S, Samsung confirms
Android 4.1 runs on the Google Nexus 7, and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the next device in line for some of that Jelly Bean goodness. This is all stuff that we already know. Yet what Samsung just made official is that the Nexus S will get the JB update as well. Note that this is not a rumor as the statement comes straight from the horse's mouth.
The folks at PocketNow sent an inquiry to the Korean tech giant regarding Jelly Bean updates for its devices, and here is the response that they received:
Samsung will soon announce which additional devices are eligible for the Jelly Bean update. As the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer, Samsung leads the Android community with best-in-class devices like the Galaxy S III, and is creating new device categories with products like the Galaxy Note. Samsung has delivered the most Nexus-branded lead OS devices and we are pleased that Google will be bringing Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S customers the first experiences of Jelly Bean on a handheld device.
That is about it for now, but more info on the matter is to be announced in the near future. When all those Google Nexus S owners can expect getting an update is still unknown.
