Samsung starts Android 4.2.2 update for Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (GT-P3100)

Well, the season of Android 4.2 updates to Samsung’s huge lineup of devices seems to finally be here, as just a day after the update started rolling out to the Galaxy S II Plus in Germany, Samsung is now treating the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (3G variant) to the newer (but not the latest anymore) flavour of Jelly Bean. The rollout has begun in France, with the build number P3100XXDMG6.

Android 4.2.2 brings a number of small but useful changes, such as a dedicated notifications panel in the status bar, lockscreen widgets, multiple user accounts, better accessibility, Daydreams screensaver mode, and also new widgets and launcher from the Galaxy S4. Expect to see improvements in performance and battery life as well.

It’s quite odd to see mid-range devices getting preference for the Android 4.2 update, though that does show Samsung isn’t giving as much special preference to their high-end device owners, and it confirms again and again that devices like the Galaxy S III and Note II will directly get updated to Android 4.3.

The update can be grabbed from Kies or via an over-the-air update on the device itself (Settings » About tablet » Software update), and you can also download the firmware from our firmware page to manually update (manual update can be done on any unlocked Tab 2 7.0 from any country, but outside France you may have to wipe data to make it boot up).

Firmware information:
Model: GT-P3100
Country: France
Version: Android 4.2.2
Changelist: 1198223
Build date: Mon, 29 Jul 2013 02:17:49 +0000
Product Code: XEF

How does Samsung determine your country for the purpose of OS upgrades? Is it the country where you bought your unit, or the country that you’re presently located in, or something else?

However it is both it’s because Samsung puts CSC’s on every device to ensure that the device should be specific for every country in the world
