Rumor: Samsung may skip Android 4.2.2 on Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S III for Android 4.3

Take this with a big pinch of salt but according to a new rumor, Samsung won’t release the Android 4.2.2 update for the Galaxy Note II or the Galaxy S III. This information comes from a site called Temefy and they claim the reason for skipping it is that Samsung is also working on Android 4.3. Another reason could the release timeframe which the site says could be around November this year and if true, makes sense for Samsung to release Android 4.3 instead of Android 4.2.2.

Thanks to our insiders, we’ve got an inside look at the Android 4.2.2 for the Galaxy S III but there’s no leak of a test build of the latest Android OS for the Galaxy Note II.

The latest updates are very, very bad we already update 4.2 that are millions of us hope this update and as I thought about buying many future s5 note3 etc …. In December I bought the note 2 and samsung lords decis me that I have to wait least October or November to upgrade my phone??? Are you out of your mind??!! I’ve bought the s2 s3 and note 2 and I think that will be the last samsung as you realize what you do. You guys are making fun of 50 million people and that sooner or later you will pay …. For both mobile to get us to buy when at 6 months after buying from us you pass ….. What is your grave …. If your mobile costasen 100 euros you could do it like that but paying what we paid for them does not seem right

I think I’ll pass ‘to apple … are more’ precise in releasing updates. and ‘true that is out of the s4 but who and’ in possession of s3 that be done? throw it … I do not like politics samsung and that’s why I decided to switch to Apple
sorry for the translation into English! ….

the s4 mini have already 4.2.2, ace 3 and grand duos too…. are mobiles worse than s3 and note 2…. I can’t believe that samsung delays more this firmware… It’s incredible and it’s possible that I don’t buy anymore a samsung smartphone… I’m annoyed about it!

All these comments from people whining about how they’ll never buy “Shamesung” every again irritates me. Maybe its because I have old Samsung devices that I have this viewpoint. You know, the Galaxy S era. When some devices weren’t even updated at all. Or they received one update before being dropped. Sammobile is a site dedicated to providing you news about the latest Samsung devices and news. Its NOT a site where you can endlessly whine about how “little support” you’re getting. Imagine how many changes they have to make to just one device’s firmware for localisation, features, performance and so many other things. Yes, they screw up. Yes, they’re slow at doing it. But try pushing an almost flawless update to over 20 million devices in the world- guesstimating the number of just S3s and Note 2s- and its easy to see what demand they have to meet.

Ok it sucks to be true but… we are talking about the flagship devices… Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II, they are you know high -end devices… but samsung really cares about the sales right at the moment… and they postpone the updates… because these devices are old… They must care about their new devices, S IV, Grand etc… And Sure MONEY…

I think this is a wine that Samsung releases a lot of calls looking for google nexus release only and the guards Apple also releases a single model, and Samsung has them too much and I am not sure what to focus on too large a variety of processors and other versions of the processor. He is waiting for what will happen but now I can say that there warzne or buy a weak model is very powerful not sure what to upgrade

I would rather wait for 4.3 if the bluetooth bug is still unresolved, I tried official leaked 4.2.2, it always drop pairing with my Sony MN2 Smart Watch. Now, I am back to 4.1.2, it’s very smooth and stable, somemore it has the 3d gallery view which is the most I like but was missing in 4.2. I am owning S3 from its lanching, received 3 major firmware updates ( 4.0.4 -> 4.1.1 -> 4.1.2 ) and several minor updates within a year. Compared to HTC One S, it’s officially stopped from any firmware support since last month.

Why buy a Note 3 on release day when Samsung will release 5 more versions of it 1-2 months later? I’ll wait for the Note 3 active + 64GB memory built in + coin dispenser + ZOOM + super pooper LTE + aluminum blue shell.
I forgot to mention the flexible screen with 4K resolution- lol!

C’mon Samsung! 30 versions of a phone is stupid marketing.

The question is when will we be able to update our Note 2/GS3 to 4.3 Jellybean?

patron miguel angel

Sr samsung

should once and for all put pure jelly bean android without touchwizz in note 2 because it is a half phablet phone and tablet and android tablet are pure. when you leave android 4.3 android 5.0 and reaches the samsung note 2 again will be behind on your updates.
I have the note 2

I am a proud owner of Samsung Note 2 and note 10.1. I am eagerly waiting for samsung Android updates, but I can wait (because my devices are super) as long as I have the latest Android 4.3 or Android 5, with the new features of Galaxy S4. (some of them at least). Some features I really wish for is the SD card application move, the multiple user login the camera 360 sphere the recent new camera features plus the smooth and fast UI. I can wait!!!

How about Samsung Galaxy S II?

-McClane-
2 years 1 month ago

The Galaxy S II get only Android 4.2.2
This is the last Update for the S II.
Android 4.3 doesn’t come to this Phone.
I think, it is ok for a Phone, who is round about 2,5 Years old…

I am already looking at an Acer Liquid Duo phone from Expansys. It already has Jelly Bean 4.2.2.

Samsung are so irritatingly disrespectful to their customers, and all the rumors from here and there are not helping these days at all.

Deliximus

taking longer to go from 4.1.2 to 4.2.2 is ‘not respectfully’. oh please. I can find a laundry list of manufacturers that have yet to upgrade. You can comparing a NEW device to a year-old device for updates? It’s a good idea to check Acer’s (or anybody’s record) for updates before making such a comparison. I guarantee you that Samsung’s update record destroys everybody else’ – not just the flagship but down to the midrange as well.

How much longer has one got to wait? Acer have 4.2.2 on a device much cheaper than Samsung’s Note II and S3 lte.
