Delay in Android 4.2.2 update for Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung GALAXY Note II?

Delay in Android 4.2.2 update for Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung GALAXY Note II?
A tweet sent out by SamMobile might have turned a pleasant day into a rather rough evening for many, especially if they own the Samsung Galaxy S III or the Samsung GALAXY Note II. You see, both of those devices are powered by Android 4.1.2 at the moment, and yeah there is nothing wrong with that build of Android. After all, it brought the smooth scrolling of Project Butter, the timely information that comes from Google Now, and actionable notifications that save you time and effort. But with a newer Android build available, it is that human desire to always own the latest and greatest that makes you yearn for Android 4.2.2.

We all know that Android 4.2.2 will eventually come to the Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung GALAXY Note II. After all, both models are still powerful devices and the Samsung Galaxy S III will end up with many of the same features that are on the sequel, including the Android 4.2.2 that the Samsung Galaxy S4 launched with. And if the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 can come with Android 4.2.2 out of the box, you just know that the Samsung GALAXY Note II will be updated as well.

But getting back to the tweet, the message certainly wasn't one of joy. Apparently, the Android 4.2.2 update for both the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Samsung GALAXY Note II have been delayed because of the new version of TouchWiz that needs to be tested on both models first. Considering that, as we pointed out already, some newer Samsung devices already are running Android 4.2.2, we don't expect too much of a delay before the update is finally rolled out. And remember, the best things in life are worth waiting for, right?
