Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Officially Confirmed

Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for Samsung Galaxy Tab 77

Samsung is one of the companies that takes good care of its products when it comes to firmware updates. Therefore, learn that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will officially roll out, as confirmed by the Thailand division of the company.

As you probably remember, in September 2012 Samsung revealed the list of devices that will receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update. At that time it seemed like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 will not receive the firmware update, but now Samsung Thailand officially confirms that the 7.7-inch tablet will receive Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.

You can see in the screenshot above taken from Samsung Thailand’s website, the exact roll out date of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 wasn’t revealed, but, even so, it’s great news for the owners.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 was launched running Android 3.2 Honeycomb, but after Google launched Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the software engineers of the South Korea-based company took their time to optimize it for the 7.7-inch tablet.

We don’t know yet whether we’re talking about Android 4.1.1 or Android 4.1.2, as the official website isn’t specifying this detail, but since the Galaxy S2 has the same status and Samsung confirmed Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for its former flagship, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 might also be upgraded to the same firmware version.

The same document states the Galaxy Tab 8.9 as stuck on Ice Cream Sandwich, thus, if you happen to have one of those, the custom ROMs might be your only alternative to join the Jelly Bean party.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 was officially announced in October 2011, boasting a 7.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with HD resolution, dual-core 1.4 GHz Exynos processor, 1 GB of RAM and 16/32/64 GB of internal storage. The camera mounted on the back of the case is a 3.15 megapixel unit, while the user-facing 2 megapixel sensor is ideal for video calls.

    I’ll bet owner of 7.7 can gen an official jb from samsung in mid 2013 cause mine just upgrade to ics from hc 2months ago.jb is for newest samsung phone/tablet so i think samsung aint really that stupid to let the older version phone/tablet use it.

    The last upgrade for the tab 7.7 did not receive its latest embedded apps Polaris Office. While the rest of the Tabs were having Polaris office with version 4.0 running ICS, the GT 6800 is stuck with thr previous Honeycome version of Polaris 3.0. I hope Samsung upgrade its Polaris this time round
