Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S II, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 2

Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S II, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 2Er, if should probably elaborate on that slightly ambiguous headline. I mean we have an update on the Jelly Bean updates; Android 4.1 isn’t available for those handsets just yet.

Yeah, so, wanna know when you can expect Jelly Bean for your Galaxy S II, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note or Galaxy Note 2? Read on, James.

Samsung’s Jelly Bean schedule is revealed over on Sammobile, courtesy of the “same insiders that told us about the Galaxy Ice Cream Sandwich updates for mobile phones and tablets.”

Starting with the trusty Samsung Galaxy S II, we’re hearing that Jelly Bean is currently being tested, and that the “first tests are looking fine”. In the worst case, the Samsung Galaxy S II will receive a Jelly Bean “Value Pack”.

It’s a similar story for the Samsung Galaxy Note. For both the Samsung Galaxy S II and Samsung Galaxy Note, Jelly Bean is expected in Q4.

As for the more recent Samsung Galaxy S III, Jelly Bean is said to be coming along nicely, and it’s expected to roll out in late Q3/early Q4.

Finally, there’s the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. It’s expected to launch on August 29, though it’s not clear if it’ll arrive with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) or Jelly Bean.

In the latter case, Jelly Bean would arrive on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in early Q4.

Phew. In summary:

  • Samsung Galaxy S II – Q4, possible “Value Pack”
  • Samsung Galaxy S III – late Q3/early Q4
  • Samsung Galaxy Note – Q4, possible “Value Pack”
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 2 – on release or early Q4

From the source/link above: "For tablets we still dont’t have any information."

Don't cry. I meant "people like" in its most beautiful sense.
And I fully trust you can keep track of all OS updates...forever and ever

Don't be mean, Jan :p.

Samsung will ruin Jelly Bean with their crappy TouchWiz UI, anyway. It'll be no different to ICS once Samsung have "fiddled" with it.

For anyone who wants JB on their S2 now, install CyanogenMod 10, the only thing not working is Project Butter, but the ROM is still very smooth. Bluetooth audio streaming (the only other broken thing), was fixed in the update before last.

I don't think TV-out works though, which is something I use all the time.

I think you might be right. I don't even own an MHL cable, so I wouldn't know :p.

Samsung Galaxy S II – Q4, possible “Value Pack”
Samsung Galaxy Note – Q4, possible “Value Pack”

Potentially about to get Windows 7.8'd?
