Galaxy S2 Jelly Bean update rolling out in November, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 10.1 getting it in Q4

by: Chris SmithOctober 20, 2012

The Galaxy S3 is finally receiving the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update in several markets, although not in all of them, which means we should expect other Samsung smartphones and tablets to receive the same upgrade at some point in the future, right?

The Samsung Galaxy S2, the Galxy Note and the Galaxy Note 10.1 are the devices that we expect to run Android 4.1 at some point in the immediate, or not-so-immediate, future. In case you happen to own any of these three devices, you’ll be happy to hear that Samsung Sweden has confirmed that all of them will get Jelly Bean in the coming months.

The Galaxy S2 will be updated to Jelly Bean at some point in November, while the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Note 10.1 will be upgraded in Q4 2012. Considering that we’re already in the fourth quarter of the year, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the Galaxy S2 receive the update at some point next month, with the phablet and tablet to receive it after the handset.

According to Samsung Sweden, the Jelly Bean updates will be available over-the-air or via KIES, but we’ll cross those bridges once we get there. Needless to say that while Samsung may be ready to start releasing the updates, it’s still up to the carriers to issue them.

Are you looking forward to getting Jelly Bean on any of these devices or do you plan to buy a device that’s already running Jelly Bean out of the box?

    How long after that before the i717 u.s. version is released? Then I have to find a new working root to get all the carrier crapware off. I give credit to Samsung for continuing to update this device though. I hope we get 4.2 or whatever is next. When support ends I’ll be switching back to cm nightly builds.

  • We are in Q4 2012…

  • It’ll be nice to have it on my S2 Skyrocket – but I’m pretty happy with 4.0 now.

    Glad to hear that. I hope with JB update, it’ll solve a LOT of issues on Galaxy Note. Sigh~
