Samsung lists which of its US smartphones will receive Jelly Bean

Samsung lists which of its US smartphones will receive Jelly Bean
Jelly Bean, Jelly Bean, wherefore art thou Jelly Bean? If you happen to own a Samsung Android smartphone, that is the question you keep asking.

Even though we've seen a list of which Samsung devices (sold world wide) that would receive Jelly Bean, there hasn't been any official word on which of Samsung's US smartphones would receive the update.

First off, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Sprint and Verizon have already been updated to Jelly Bean, as well as Sprint's Nexus S 4G. What is interesting is that the Samsung Galaxy S III update is only listed as "Coming Soon" for Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and U.S. Cellular. At this point, we were hoping there would be more of an official time frame given. Missing is any mention of the Samsung Galaxy S II sold in the US, as Samsung has already said the overseas model would receive Jelly Bean, so we're not sure why the US model would not.

Over the past few weeks, we there have been Jelly Bean leaks for the AT&T and T-Mobile Galaxy S III, including a recent Jelly Bean leak for Sprint. But we have yet to see a leak for the Verizon model. Hopefully the official Jelly Bean update will hit for all Samsung Galaxy S III models in the US before the end of the year, as most newer smartphones coming out for the holiday season are expected to ship with JB, or be updated to it within a couple months.

I have installed JB on my SGS2 more than 3months for XDA (Rootbox-JRO03H) and with normal usage the battery lasts 1 to 2 days.

It was bound to happen. I don't really see Samsung updating the S2 to JB or at least not in the immediate future.

Why would you die? Most devices gets 1-2 updates then stop. Its the android world. Nothing is that great with 4.1 anyways

It really is amazing. My GNex felt like a brand new phone as soon as I updated. FranksGT is just jealous and trolling hardcore

Every Samsung Galaxy device has gotten at least 3 updates? Are you serious? I bet you can't even name one because that's simply not true.

No, the most any Samsung Galaxy device got in terms of updates is 2 to my knowledge, it was the original Galaxy S, it released with 2.1, then later got 2.2 then 2.3

You're absolutely right, but for some reason I get thumbed down twice for stating the facts. The people on this site are unbelievable. You can't state facts without getting hated on.

EDIT: I guess, technically, the Nexus S is a Galaxy device too. Also got 2 updates.

The Nexus shouldn't be counted as a Galaxy device, it's a Google device.

64. g2a5b0e (Posts: 3725; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)


I'm sure it can be interpreted either way. I mean, the second Samsung Nexus device specifically has Galaxy in the name.

65. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4275; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)


Yeah, I can understand. But Samsung should not be given credit towards the updates even though it is "Galaxy" device, considering the updates are handled by Google.

I can agree with that.
