Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Update For Samsung Galaxy S2 And Galaxy Note To Arrive Soon
There were some rumors saying that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will not roll out for Samsung Galaxy S2. Of course, after hearing the speculations most of the Samsung Galaxy S2 went berserk against the South Korea-based company.
Samsung gave the “no comment” treatment to the rumors, as all they announced was that the engineers are working around the clock and that an official list of smartphones that will receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will be soon released.
A popular blog with strong connections inside Samsung confirmed that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S2 is currently in the works, and that they even tested the new firmware. Sammobile also adds that the feedback is positive and that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will arrive via Keis sometime in September or October.
The first smartphone that received the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is Google’s deve smartphone co-developed with Samsung, the Galaxy Nexus, or GNex how to cool Android fanboys like to call it.
The Samsung Galaxy Note fans also have a reason to joy, as the same source confirmed that the South Korea-based company will roll out the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the 5.3-inch phablet.
Summing up, there will be at least three Samsung smartphones that will receive the official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update: Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy S2 and Samsung Galaxy Note.
I guess that Samsung Galaxy S3 will be the first device to receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, followed by Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note. Everyone expected Samsung and Google to tighten up their partnership and now it seems this is what really happened.
I remember that at Google I/O event the officials announced that the Jelly Bean 4.1 PDK was provided to the top manufacturers a few months ahead of the official Android 4.1 announcement. Still you will have to wait a few months until the official firmware update drops for your Galaxy S3 / S2 / Note smartphone. Hopefully this waiting time will reduce in the near future.
