A paltry 1.2% of Android devices are estimated to be rocking Jelly Bean (Android 4.1), but that figure is set for a significant boost over the next few weeks.
Joining the Jelly Bean ranks are the 20 million Samsung Galaxy S III owners, starting with our friends in Poland.
Samsung started rolling out the Jelly Bean update to Galaxy S III users in Poland yesterday, and promises it’ll be “gradually introduced” in other markets at, er, some point.
The Jelly Bean update reportedly improves Samsung Galaxy S III battery life, and is silky smooth thanks to Google’s Project Butter for Android.
The following Samsung Galaxy devices are also confirmed for Jelly Bean:
- 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 notable omission there is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, star of various courtroom disputes. Poor chap. No dates for those other devices just yet.
Getting back to the Samsung Galaxy S III, unlocked devices will of course see the Jelly Bean update first, while networks will be required to stamp their approval and that. Hopefully they won’t be overly tardy.
Do you have a Samsung Galaxy S III? Any sign of Jelly Bean yet?
