Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note rumored to receive Jelly Bean update in Q4
Rumor has it that the Samsung Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note could be receiving the Android 4.1 JellyBean update in the fourth quarter of this year. This report comes from SamMobile.com, which has been a reliable source for Samsung news in the past. The Galaxy S III is also expected to receive the update in the near future and the software is currently being rumored to be tested on the device and should be released by late Q3 or early Q4.
Rumors also point to Android 4.1, JellyBean currently testing on the Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note. Samsung has not confirmed that these devices will receive the update as the company could be waiting to see how the tests go before making an official announcement. The Galaxy Note 2 is expected to launch later on this month and it is unclear what software it will be released with. At the moment it is said to be running Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, however, that could change by the time the official update is launched.
We’re well within unconfirmed rumor territory here, but the dates posted here certainly sound realistic. It’s no surprise to see the S3 and Note 2 first in line for Jelly Bean, but today’s reports might provide some hope for S2 and original Note owners that Samsung hasn’t forgotten about them.
