Samsung reveals all devices that will get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update
Ah, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean! Android’s promised land of no lag is closer than ever, and now Samsung has released the full list of all devices that will be bumped up to Jelly Bean. Of course, the flagship Galaxy S III is the first to get JB starting today in some European countries.

The update brings first and foremost Project Butter, the almost magical Google tweak that brings buttery smooth lag-free experience, but Samsung is also bringing its own TouchWiz flavor update. For instance, in PopUp Play, the feature where you can play a video while doing something else, you’ll be able to adjust the size of the video window.

The release date is soon, but nothing more specific.

And we are honestly impressed as even Samsung’s most affordable handsets like the Galaxy Mini II are getting bumped up. More advanced phones like last year’s Galaxy S II and mid-rangers like the Ace 2 and the unique pico projector-laden are all there as well. Check out the full list below:

  • Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 
  • Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 
  • Galaxy Note 10.1 
  • Galaxy S II 
  • Galaxy Note 
  • Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus 
  • Galaxy S Advance 
  • Galaxy S II LTE 
  • Galaxy Music 
  • Galaxy Chat 
  • Galaxy Ace 2 
  • Galaxy Beam 
  • Galaxy Ace Plus 
  • Galaxy Mini II 
  • Galaxy S DUOS 

One notable omission in this list is the original 10.1-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab which is obviously at the end of its update cycle and 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was its last stop.

But apart from that one device, this seems like a very, very solid update lineup for Samsung, don’t you think?

Really? You expect Samsung to update a phone that can't even run ICS to Jelly Bean?

No, a simple sarcasm would be "Where's my Galaxy S?".

The Galaxy Y is a relatively new budget model, thus, many believe that new = constant updates. I've seen comment on Samsung's FB page on why the Y isn't being updated. So yeah.

Hahaha. You sure you're not really sheldon cooper? I don't even get why you would want to argue with my sarcastic comment.

Carriers really f things up with bull s**t versions to dumb down phone capabilities with their own versions. Most carrier intervening comes from wanting to control what you can, or can't do with devices that you already have paid for to try to nickle and dime your for services, like tethering.

Before they found that you can block tethering to make money on it it was free in the early 2000's. Now that feature is dumbed down.lol

So sad after reading the article, my galaxy tab 7.7 wasn't included also. Why Samsung? I chose 7.7 than tab 2 coz of it's hardware and super amoled plus display.

Never expected my daughters Captivate Glide to get it, but allowed a little hope as I read how a couple of mid-range to receive it. Oh well. She will survive.

This is a great list. Inclusive, a great range of devices, and shows Samsung is truly working to support their world wide customer base. I would never hesitate to buy a Samsung.
