Samsung did a little dance, made a little love, and got down last night, at a pre-IFA event in Berlin, with the headline act of course being the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
But there was also a nod towards a couple of existing devices, namely the Samsung Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note 10.1; a delicious Jelly Bean-flavoured nod.
Both the Samsung Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note 10.1 currently run Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), but Sammo says they’ll be upgraded to Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) “very soon”. Good stuff.
However, that leaves a bit of a question mark over Matt’s beloved Samsung Galaxy S II, as well as the original Samsung Galaxy Note.
A few weeks ago, there was speculation that the elder Samsung devices might instead see Jelly Bean “Value Packs”. However, sources of Sammobile later suggested Jelly Bean was “confirmed” for both the Samsung Galaxy S II and Samsung Galaxy Note.
Going back to the Samsung Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note 10.1, Sammo doesn’t elaborate on “very soon”, but recent rumours suggested some time in Q3, which – at this stage – translates as “some point in September”.
