List of Samsung devices to get Jellybean updates




When we posted the article yesterday, some of us (yes, including myself) were disappointed by the fact that your beloved Samsung device are still stuck with an old OS while their quad-core toting counterpart has already started getting the update.

But all is not lost as the South Korean company hasn’t totally neglected our devices. In line with the release of the Android 4.1 update for the SGS3, Samsung also made a short list of their current devices which would get the same treatment.

Galaxy Tab 2.7.0
Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
Galaxy Note 10.1
Galaxy S II
Galaxy Note
Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus
Galaxy S Advance
Galaxy S II LTE
Galaxy Music
Galaxy Chat
Galaxy Ace 2
Galaxy Beam
Galaxy Ace Plus
Galaxy Mini II
Galaxy S Duos

The list is definitely a good start but it would’ve been better if they included a release date along with it. To make things worse, it was brought to our attention that some of these devices still don’t have ICS installed on it, especially those which are purchased from a telco. As soon as we’ve heard word when the update starts seeding, we’re sure to update you guys.

      My friend used a custom ROM based on Jelly Bean for his Galaxy S2, he loved how fast and responsive his phone was, but the custom ROM had issues with the camera so he had to go back to ICS

      you can expect that JB will be awesome ;) personally, I can’t wait for the Galaxy Note update XD

      got a reply from Samsung today:

    Can we update it by ourselves? Or should we have our units given to Samsung?

    • Chris says:

      You can do it yourself. You can hook it up to Kies and Kies will download the latest firmware for your phone. Sometimes Kies just doesn’t work with me though. You can also try going into settings then click software update and it’ll download it straight to your phone. I can imagine though that the file size would quite large though.
