Samsung Galaxy S III getting Jelly Bean around end-Q3, Galaxy S II, Note and Note 2 updates coming soon after
posted by Victor H. / Aug 06, 2012, 5:22 AM
Website Sam Mobile has now used its inside sources to share the rumors that the Jelly Bean firmware for the Galaxy S III has passed the testing stage and engineers are working on the public release of the update. So far, expectations are that the Samsung Galaxy S III will get Jelly Bean around the end of the third quarter to the beginning of Q4 2012. Nothing is official, just rumors, though.
Other phones to get bumped up to Android 4.1 soon are the Samsung Galaxy S II which still has solid sales and the Galaxy Note, as well as the upcoming second-generation Note.
Big news here is that this once again reiterates whispers about the Samsung Galax Note II launching only with Ice Cream Sandwich on board and not the latest Jelly Bean.
For the Galaxy Note and Note II the Jelly Bean update seem very probable, while for the Galaxy S II testing is still underway. So far, there’s no reason not to update it, but if Samsung engineers happen to find one, at least a value pack update is certain. The three phones are said to get Jelly Bean in Q4 2012.

I'll believe it when the update starts rolling out. Samsung has a record of telling you an update is coming and then not delivering for months later. Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Q1 2012 ring any bells?

Oh please, they do even worse. Galaxy S2/Note still didn't get the ICS update in the Middle East/North Africa region

Broke? Its a phone with a huge touch screen, any phone with a touch screen can break if you are stupid or unlucky. The mighty RAZR can break and even the iPhone. So if you're too clumsy or dumb to keep your phone is your hand, that's your own fault.

At least they get timely updates rather than six months later. You'd think with JB being an incremental upgrade it would be out sooner. Leave it up to Samsung to take their time on it.

Every ICS device should get JB. Its a much improved optimization. If the Nexus S can run JB there's no excuse for any dual core device with 1GB of RAM. Tho I'm sure some devices won't just for the sake of being forgotten. But its good Galaxy S2 and Note users will also be getting it.
