Samsung Galaxy S2, S3 and Note are among the most popular smartphones and have been sold in tens of millions each. Now people are awaiting for the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for them, while the Galaxy Note still hasn’t been updated to ICS by all carriers yet.
Though Sam Mobile comes with great news for Galaxy S2, S3 and Note users. According to them, Samsung is preparing to release the Jelly Bean update in Q3 or Q4 and we hope carriers will move fast and launch the updates short thereafter.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean comes with great new features, while the UI hasn’t been changed very much. Some features people are eager getting their hands on are the Google Now and new notifications system which allows them to block specific apps from sending them. It also features Project Butter, an improvement which makes the operating system smoother and faster, by guessing the users’ next tap and preloading the content.
Samsung is known for issuing updates long after a new version is being released by Google and it’s a big turnoff for their customers. Hopefully they are going to change this and make everyone happy. Lately many have switched to Google branded devices, because they are updated very fast to new versions. The Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 have seen a huge success, in comparison with Google’s previous Android devices.

Currently no custom Jelly Bean firmware is very stable, but they are worth trying.
