Samsung Galaxy S3, S2 and Note Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update rumours suggest each handset is in line to recieve an internal upgrade later this year

 

Several of Samsung’s flagship handsets – the Galaxy Note, Galaxy S2 and recently-released Galaxy S3 – are in line for the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update later this year, sources told SamMobile.

The site claims that an update for the Galaxy S3 is “nearly there” and that software tests on the device have already been completed – the next step is to get approval from Google, which owns Android.

Meanwhile, testing is reportedly underway on the S2. According to reports, Samsung is eager to roll out the new OS onto its former flagship device - its most successful smartphone ever in terms of global sales.

Testing is also apparently underway on the South Korean firm’s ‘phablet’, the Samsung Galaxy Note.

However, reports have suggested that both devices could simply be in line for a ‘value pack’ update, which basically means they will not get the full software upgrade – only selected Jelly Bean features.

The S3 is expected to get the update between Q3 and Q4, while the update will land for both the Note and S2 between October and December.

Samsung is expected to announce its Galaxy Note 2 handset at IFA later this month, however, it’s unclear whether it will land with either Ice Cream Sandwich or Jelly Bean.

The article reads: "The Samsung Galaxy Note II would be showed at IFA 2012. The test software is currently based on Android 4.0.

"Our insider isn’t sure if Samsung will introduce the Galaxy Note II with Android 4.0 or Android 4.1. If Samsung decides to use Android 4.0 at launch, an update to the Galaxy Note will be available a couple of months after."
