Samsung Releases List Of Androids Getting Jelly Bean


Overnight, we told you about reports we had heard of Jelly Bean arriving for international Galaxy S III handsets. Since then, Samsung’s confirmed the start of its Android 4.1 distribution for the model, as well as offered a look at which of its other smartphones and tablets will be seeing their own Jelly Bean updates arrive in the future.

The biggies like the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note make the cut, obviously, along with the Galaxy S Advance, S II LTE, Chat, Ace 2, Ace Plus, Beam, Mini 2 and the Galaxy S Duos.

On the tablet side, Samsung says to expect Jelly Bean for the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, Tab 2 7.0, Tab 2 10.1, and the new Note 10.1; there’s no word on updates for the first-gen Tab 10.1 or Tab 8.9, which may be left on Ice Cream Sandwich.

What’s really odd, though, is the mention of the “Galaxy Music” on the list of devices Samsung released. For now, no one seems to know what to make of that. Was it a canceled release? An internal Samsung name for another model? We’re hoping Samsung clarifies things, but the explanation will probably be less exciting than the mystery.

There’s no ETA for the release of Jelly Bean on any of these models; consider it more of a “heads up” than anything.
