Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update coming to the Galaxy S2, S3 and Note in Q3/Q4

The Samsung Galaxy S3 has been released in May and it came with Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, though people are now awaiting for a 4.1 Jelly Bean update. Unfortunately, it’s well known how long it takes Samsung to release updates, so people might have to wait until Q3 or even Q4.

Fortunately for Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note users, a Jelly Bean update is coming for them too. According to Sam Mobile, these devices will get the update in Q4, this year, so users will have to wait a few more months. But you shouldn’t expect the update to reach all users, because carriers sometimes delay the updates even by 6 months, so you might have to wait much longer if your carrier doesn’t do something about it.

While Android 4.1 Jelly Bean isn’t a huge makeover, it does have some nice features and improvements, like Project Butter, Google Now, improved notifications and the ability to block the ability of an app to send push notifications.

These three devices, Samsung’s Galaxy S2, S3 and Note are among the best sold smartphones worldwide, and the Korean maker is definitely willing to hurry with the update, because otherwise the number of unpleased customers would be in the tens of millions range.

If you can’t wait until Samsung released an official Jelly Bean update for their devices, there’s an option for you. You can update using an unofficial Jelly Bean firmware, though this can void your warranty or even damage your device. Also the custom Jelly Bean firmwares are not very stable yet. But if you still want to give it a try, here you can find some for the Galaxy S2 here, Galaxy S3 here and Galaxy Note here.
