Samsung begin rollout of Jelly Bean for Galaxy S3, announces plans for other devices

Samsung have finally begun rolling out the much awaited Android 4.1 Jelly bean update. The first country to get the update is Poland, with other countries to receive the update shortly. Jelly bean brings with it some much wanted improvements like Project butter, which increase the overall smoothness and responsive of Android and Google Now, which is the voice enabled search application.

So it shouldn’t be too long before you will receive your Jelly Bean goodness, but there may be a delay due to networks taking their time to implement their own tweaks. None the less, it’s good to see it finally begin to make its way to the popular device. Keep in mind that you will lose flash support after upgrading, but there are ways of getting it back, check on XDA for more info on that.

Samsung also announced their plans for older device and which ones will actually be getting the Jelly Bean upgrade, although they didn’t mention any timeline. Below are the devices that will be getting Jelly bean.

  • Galaxy Tab 2 7.0
  • Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
  • Galaxy Note 10.1

  • Galaxy S Advance
  • Galaxy S II LTE
  • Galaxy Music
  • Galaxy Chat
  • Galaxy Ace 2
  • Galaxy Beam

The original Galaxy Tab 10.1 will not be getting Jelly bean, assuming this is the final list. There is other ways of getting Jelly Bean on the device, but from the looks of things there won’t be an official version by Samsung.
