Another week comes to end here and the wait for Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean still continues for many people who own Samsung devices. With this report we bring every small and big development in the Android corridors that has taken place during this week and is related to Samsung smartphones.
The whole week saw so many rumors about the next Android version, Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, and many releases of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. As far as Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is concerned, we still have to hang on until Samsung releases its latest smartphone Galaxy S4 for retail outlets.
The only piece of information about the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update came out this week is that the update might be rolled out for Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 devices somewhere in May or June this year.
"Android 4.2.2 updates Galaxy S III and Note II May/June," SamMobile tweeted on its official Twitter page.
Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie captured the whole of this week and remained in rumors for all the time not for its release but for the supported devices.
According to some reports, the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie is going to support the devices that are powered by quad-core processors, it means the devices running on dual-core processors or lower ones are not going to get the Key Lime Pie update. Although there were reports that Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie will be rolled out to Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2 devices, but now it seems that the Galaxy S3 devices in the U.S. will have to satisfy themselves with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean only. Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, which is going to be launched very soon, is also doubtful of getting the Key Lime Pie as it is rumored to be coming with a dual-core processor.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update has been rolled out to a number of devices in the U.S., UK and other countries, but as the update is being rolled out in phases and mostly by the carriers many countries and devices are yet to get the update.
Samsung Galaxy S2 in the U.S., UK and India has started getting the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update. Galaxy S2 devices on Sprint in the U.S., Three UK and in India are getting the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update over the air (OTA) and via Samsung Kies.
The low-end 3-inch smartphone from Samsung, the Galaxy Ch@t has also started receiving the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update OTA in Spain, and the devices in other parts of the world are also expected to get the update soon.
Samsung has also released the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 devices.
The most surprising release of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean came for Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus as the tablet got third Android update since its release
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus was launched running Android 3.2 Honeycomb out of the box and later was updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update is going to be the third Android update for the tablet, but this is probably the last update as Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean (if rolled out for the device) is going to be the last update for Android devices running on dual core processors.
Users of the tablet are surprisingly happy to get the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update, but the disappointment of not getting the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update is clearly there.
"It is glad to know Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus can be updated to 4.1.2. I hope get it soon! But 4.2.2 makes me more happier," as user said.
