While Galaxy series handsets line up for Jelly Bean


According to a post over at Electronista.com, it appears that Samsung's upcoming and eagerly anticipated Galaxy Note II phablet might launch with Android 4.0 ICS rather than the new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The rest of the lineup, on the other hand, might get it soon rather than later.

According to the details from various sources, Galaxy S III, as current Samsung smartphone flagship, might get the Jelly Bean update by the end of the third quarter this year. Initial firmware has passed testing thus enabling Samsung to prepare the public release. Apparently, Samsung also plans to roll out Jelly Bean update for both the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy Note, as both devices are currently undergoing tests. The update is expected sometime in the fourth quarter. Samsung also has a backup plan to offer a "value pack" in case those two devices fail at Jelly Bean tests.

The last but not least is the upcoming Galaxy Note II phablet that, according to rumors, is currently running on Android 4.0 and could launch with it. It is still not clear if Samsung will manage to get Jelly Bean up and running on Galaxy Note II but it is pretty much clear that it will get an update sooner or later.
