Based on the information, Galaxy S III will receive the latest Android v4.1 Jelly Bean OS update sometime this October while Galaxy S II will get the same OS update at some point in November. Although the exact roll out date remains undisclosed for the time being.
This is the tentative update schedules posted by Samsung Denmark on its Facebook page, associated with Android v4.1 Jelly Bean roll out.
Previous reports said the company has confirmed the new OS testing on two of its latest smartphone models was done.
GSMArena also posted an update relevant to Samsung’s newest OS upgrade, which talked about the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to be installed on the Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy S Advance before the year-end. Samsung is yet to confirm this information.
Among the various improvements this new Jelly Bean OS upgrade is about to offer on both the Galaxy S II and Galaxy S III devices would include a better user interface, voice search, better camera, expandable notifications and accessibility.
Apparently, this is awesome news to all Galaxy S II and S III users in Europe for now. But not to those who are in the United States.
According to a Samsung representative via CNet posting, the latest Jelly Bean update will only be available in the European market, not in the United States. This is in accord to the company’s new software roll out procedure, which according to the rep, varies region to region.
Yet, it is still possible for Galaxy S III and S II users in the US to avail on the latest Android v4.1 update, hopefully by 2013, according to some experts.
