Samsung is working on delivering Jelly Bean updates to a number of its older Android models, and while some have already started seeing their updates arrive, others have yet to take the plunge. Look at the original Galaxy Note, for instance: we’ve already seen leaked early versions of its Jelly Bean ROM, and noticed how Samsung UK had posted an updated version of the Note’s manual with references to features in Jelly Bean, but we’ve neither gotten word of the update itself actually going out, nor had a firm idea on a date for when it finally would. Today, we get some answers from Samsung itself on when at least certain users can expect their Note updates to arrive.
According to Samsung Ukraine’s website, the Galaxy Note will be getting its Jelly Bean update starting March 1. Now, it’s worth noting that these Ukraine dates aren’t necessarily reflective of availability elsewhere. The Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S II is already available in some places, and here Samsung Ukraine says it’s not landing until March 3. As a result, perhaps we should take that Note date as a “worst possible scenario” sort of thing, and expect the update to launch sometime between now and then.
Check out the chart of all these availability dates, including those for models like the Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, below.
