Samsung's Canadian users finally got the much-waited Galaxy Note 2 in late October, and now more good news is in store as carrier Rogers has announced that it would be rolling out the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note soon.
Even though the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean version is already our, many Android-powered devices are still awaiting the upgrade from Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Samsung began pushing out the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update in European countries in September, which was followed Galaxy S3 devices in the U.S. getting the update courtesy carrier Sprint in October.
Per the official Android OS upgrade schedule that has been posted on the Rogers Community Forums, the Canadian carrier is scheduled to push out the Android 4.1 software update in "Late November" and "LateDecember", depending on the device. Three Samsung smartphones are up for upgrade and include the Galaxy S3 LTE, Galaxy S2 LTE, and the Galaxy Note.
The devices will get upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean sooner rather than later. The details released byRogersare as follows:
