Jelly Bean updates by Samsung for SGSII, SGSIII, Note and Note II

This weekend we tweeted about Android 4.1 updates for the Galaxy S II, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note II.
Let us explain what Samsung will do and how far they are at the moment.

Galaxy S III
The test firmwares for the Galaxy S III are passed and they are working on a public version of the first Jelly Bean updates for the Galaxy S III.
The wait is on the public version and the agreement of Google.

Galaxy S II
Samsung is still testing Android 4.1 for the Galaxy S II. The first tests are looking fine. Because the Galaxy S II is still selling very well and Samsung will update the Galaxy S II to Android 4.1.
If Samsung decides at the last moment not to update the Galaxy S II, all Galaxy S II owners will get a value pack update. But so far there is no reason not to update the Galaxy S II to Android 4.1.

Galaxy Note.
For the Galaxy Note it is the same story as for the Galaxy S II.
Tests are fine but there is still no official words by Samsung.

Galaxy Note II.
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.

All the bickering about having the latest OS lol such tards I must say. The most noticeable difference between my galaxy note’s Gingerbread OS(with ex go launcher) and one of my friend’s galaxy nexus’ ICS(stock) is the “feel” thats all.

Why all the bickering to have the latest OS that just has a different feel and a few added features?

When the galaxy note 2 comes out to sell I will obviously be a buyer come around christmas time, hopefully the price would drop a little and I may get some good deals idk. But a galaxy note with better hardware is a must for me, I cant buy any other phone thats below 5″ screen and I hate tabs so the Galaxy Note series is the only category of smartphones(or phonetabs) for me.

Value pack?…Jelly Bean for SII?….no offense , it can be released in 2013….. Custom Rom will be better rather than joining turtle race….

What I do not get is that Apple IPhone 3GS, 4 and 4S got upgraded from IOS 4.x to 5.x and will receive updates to 6.x and they are all single core or dual core CPUs.

Why would the S2 that is also dual core and slightly higher speced than the IPhone 4s not get Jelly Bean 4.1.x when it is a slight update over ICS 4.0.4?

Please think about that Samsung when deciding what to launch i.e. a value pack or a full upgrade.

If this is truthful and the SIII has passed test phases and is working on a public build then we should be able to download the test build for SIII using programs such as Check Fus. However there has not been a new build posted yet at least for my SGH-I747 model.

As for if this will come out for the International GSM builds first versus the US. I think the updates will be fairly similar as long as Google approves because the builds will have been designed to meet specifications already. Since US carriers will have to push the update it will be best to download it and flash it but still. Either way since US and Canada devices are so similar it should be easy to get a hold of a test build when one pops up. International builds do not work in the US so we can’t us those. But i’m not worried. I just check everything so often from my programs for test builds.

I have used CM10 and also an AOSP build of Jelly Bean, the only problem is that you lose so much function from the SIII device such as the great camera and other common SIII features many people commonly use I found myself missing a lot. The battery life also seemed to drain more in CM10.

The S2 RAM drops from 1GB to 862MB after ICS. If they ever roll out 4.1 then I should expect the RAM to drop to 256MB!! Might as well change to a cheap low end phone as it will have more ram then the S2.
How can Samsung shortchange their customers. If I upgrade my 4GB PC from XP to Vista or Win7 should the RAM drop to 1GB? Well that is what Samsung is doing..I have 1GB on gingerbread but 682mb on ICS!!

By the way, Gaspernemec, with all due respect, I am not the only one who is suggesting the updating flaws of Samsung company. Scroll up. Unless of course I am having double vision and thinking too much.

Oh, and he also gave reason that SII should get JB full update because it is still selling like hot cakes(bad reasoning). That should not be the only reason for upgrading SII. Specs compatibility should be taken into consideration as well, otherwise it would not be possible to update SII anyway from the begining.
