Rogers' update schedule

The Samsung Galaxy S III and the Samsung GALAXY Note are a pair of heavyweights that would be the focus of any lineup like the one offered by Canadian carrier Rogers. So it would be natural for customers of the mobile operator to know when they could expect the Android 4.1 update that would bring Android 4.1 to the pair. As it turns out, Rogers passed along the word directly from the hourse's mouth and Mr. Ed had a lot to say.

According to Samsung Canada, the Samsung Galaxy S III LTE (SGH-I747M) will be receiving Jelly Bean sometime late this month. The Samsung GALAXY Note (SGH-I717R) will be Jelly Bean'ed in late December along with the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE (SGH-I727R). It's another reason for Canadians to look forward to the holiday season.

Samsung already said they released it for the US. Its up to the carriers to distribute it to phones now. I'm waiting for it on my GSIII on At&t :(

even on a nexus you have to wait for the carrier to push the update. I'm glad i have sprint and i already have the jelly bean update. I have had it for over a week now. and I still like my sgs3.

The Google branded Nexus (Galaxy Nexus or Nexus 4) doesn't rely on Carrier updates.. Its like Apple. They push updates directly to the phone when they feel like it.

I said android. You might be dyslexic, why don't you get yourself examined. I clearly mentioned my galaxy S3. Also touchwiz nature UX features are awesome and are not silly in any way.

I sold my galaxy note 1 because I didn't want to wait for jb 4.1 and I bought GN2 with jb4.1 but now I wounder when sammy will update the note 2 to jb 4.2. BTW GN2 is much better than the Note1 almost in everthing.

Since you are a user, can you tell me which one is easier to hold in one hand?

17. joseph98 (Posts: 167; Member since: 03 Feb 2012)


It depends on your hand size. If you have a big hand then sure note 1 is for you, note 2 is much easier to hold for the average user.
Because I feel sarcasm is envolved then I would say if you have a smaller hand then galaxy s3 mini is what you should really buy.

I do not understand why you guys are waiting for the updates from the carriers when there is xda developers. Running android 4.1.2 on my SGS 1 a long time :)

Because people don't want to have to do the updates manually.

What about price, is Samsung going to drop it to compete with Nexus 4? Wondering if it will be possible to get S3 for $400 or less during this holiday season.

Sprint of all carriers had Jelly Bean update for the GS3, before the Heavy Contenders.
