Samsung to update the Galaxy Tab 2 until Android 4.2.2, testing on 1st Gen Galaxy Tabs

The last week of March is here and we want to start this week with some good information! Today, SamMobile received some exclusive information regarding Android updates for the Galaxy Tab. Samsung wants to update the Galaxy Tab 2 to Android 4.1.2 and stop with Android 4.2.2! Samsung is even trying the same with the first generation of the Samsung Galaxy Tab (GT-P7300 / GT-P7500). According to our trusted insider, Samsung is busy testing how Jelly Bean updates work on the Nvidia Tegra 2 T20 processor*. He pointed out that these tests mean nothing for now. We will keep you folks up to date about the first generation of Galaxy tablets by Samsung.

The Galaxy Tab 2 by Samsung will receive Android 4.1.2 and end with Android 4.2.2. Samsung will no longer support the Galaxy Tab 2 after the Android 4.2.2 update. The updates must be done before the end of September. The issue with Samsung’s Exynos processor has been resolved and Samsung has, once again, started to test Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmwares for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 (GT-P6800) and Galaxy Tab Plus (GT-P6200).

Everything sounds a bit far away but Samsung really wants to update all tablets in Q2 and Q3 to Android 4.1.2 or maybe directly to Android 4.2.2.

The insider reconfirmed. All smartphones and tablets based on a dual-core processor will end on Android 4.2.2.
* If the processor could handle the update and the test firmwares are OK. 

We agree with the most of the users here on SamMobile about blaming Samsung because of the delay in updates but this sounds really good. Samsung will be the only brand with good reputation of Android updates. Remember, most tablets are already 2 years old and even Google only provides support for its device till 18 months.

Don’t bother upgrading to Android 4.2.2 since it’s a dog’s breakfast – slow startup, constant freeze, constant restart to kill freeze, app slow responsiveness, etc.

You will be better off with Android 4.1.2 or the factory version Android 4.0.3.

There may be hope after all. I was giving up on Samsung because of the failure to update the original tab 10.1 p7510 in a timely fashion. If I get Jelly bean update before my phone contract is up I still may look at the S4. Till then it is Motorola/Google phones form now on. The article makes it sound like they are doing us a favor by supporting the p7510 after almost 2 years old. The truth is that the update should have been out already. Jelly Bean was out and ICS was old news by the time the tablet finally received ICS. The slow update process combined with the lack of communication is what made me lose faith in Samsung. Seeing the company follow through with proper updates that should have been out already will go a long way in earning back my business. I guess we will see what happens. Ball is in your court Sammy.

@DannyD , you mentioned the following “The issue with Samsung’s Exynos processor has been resolved and Samsung has, once again, started to test Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmwares for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 (GT-P6800) and Galaxy Tab Plus (GT-P6200).”

Well so far samsung released a rom for P6200, and forgot about GT 7.7
we haven’t seen even a leak for even a test firmware !!
can you ask your insider about more information, or even a leak.

I really hope to see jelly bean on this great device once.
This the only Super AMOLED plus tablet in the entire world !!
isn’t that enough to get updated like every device else!!

well how about the galaxy tab 2 gt-p5113. what will happen to their updates

Samsung haven’t finished to upgrade P7300 tabs on all regions to ICS. Could they simply finish one thing first and then move to the next one? 8.9″ tab update pace is beyond everything. 5 months already passed since ICS rollout started for P7300 and still barely half of the regions have been covered.
