Even though it was supposed to drop earlier, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Samsun Galaxy S3 is finally here, after it was promised for late August.
Well, it seems that Samsung unveiled a list of terminals that will receive the new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean firmware update over the coming months. The list includes 11 smartphones and 4 tablets.
The good news is that the Samsung Galaxy S2 owners will be able to update their devices to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, confirming the rumors that the firmware update for this model will roll out sometime in November. Samsung Galaxy Note, Galaxy Chat, Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy Bean are also on the list of Samsung smartphones ready to receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update.
The full list of Samsung smartphones and tablets that will receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update includes: Galaxy S3, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S2 LTE, Galaxy Note, Galaxy S Advance, Galaxy Chat, Galaxy Ace 2, Galaxy Beam, Galaxy Ace Plus, Galaxy Mini 2, Galaxy S Duos, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, and Galaxy Note 10.1.
I can’t help but notice that Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 is not on the list as it was probably considered to old or too poorly sold. What even more bizarre is the absence of Galaxy Tab 10.1, but considering the large number of controversies related to this device, there’s no wonder it won’t receive the update.
Least, but not last there’s a mysterious gadget on the list, dubbed Galaxy Music, which might actually be Galaxy Player 5.8.
The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will bring improved performance and speed thanks to Project Butter, an update Notification bar, Google Now and a reorganized settings menu.
I am eager to see what the Premium Suite pack will bring for Galaxy Note and what will happen to the evolution of the apps developed for the S-Pen.
