Samsung’s New Jelly Bean Update Chart Shows US-Specific Releases
Last month, Samsung published a list of its Android smartphones that would be seeing the arrival of Jelly Bean updates – you might remember it as the list that first revealed the existence of the Galaxy Music, subsequently announced by the manufacturer. As smartphone owners in the US are all too aware, though, just because something’s been promised for the international version of a smartphone doesn’t necessarily mean that the same is in store for a US carrier variant, or at least not in a timely manner. If you’ve been curious just what the Samsung Jelly Bean situation looks like for US users in particular, Samsung now has a detailed breakdown available, looking at updates carrier-by-carrier.
We’re hoping this is just an early stab at the list, because it’s missing quite a few models from among the international devices confirmed for Jelly Bean. For instance, you won’t see the Galaxy Note or Galaxy S II on this chart, which instead focuses squarely on the GS3 and Samsung’s Nexus models.
We’d recommend keeping this one bookmarked if you’ve got a Samsung phone on a US carrier and are hoping to see it make the official journey over to Jelly Bean. With any luck, we’ll see Samsung flesh it out over the coming weeks.
