Rogers Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note arriving soon

Rogers is set to launch Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for both the Samsung Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note very soon, but device owners will have to wait several more weeks for it. Unless they're willing to perform unofficial software upgrades on their own, of course.
November 5, 2012

Users of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note under Rogers are no doubt itching to get their hands on an official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update. Even though version 4.2 is already out, version 4.1 is still sought after by many, thanks to the sheer number of new features and performance enhancements that it brings to the table. So what’s the story on the Rogers Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note?

According to the official OS upgrade schedule posted on the Rogers Community Forums, Jelly Bean is set to arrive some time in “Late November” for the Galaxy S3. Meanwhile, Galaxy Note users have to wait until “Late December” for the chance to finally upgrade to Jelly Bean. In short, there’s going to be a wait of several more weeks for owners of both devices.

Those who don’t want to wait that long can resort to performing unofficial upgrades on their own. But as the saying goes, nothing beats the real thing. If you own either of these phones, your only hope now is for Rogers to fix the release dates, which are still subject to change, to be much closer to the present.
