Samsung To Update Galaxy S2 And Galaxy Note To Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean

The folks over at SamMobile haveĀ receivedĀ a list of devices that Samsung will be upgrading to Android 4.2.2, post which they will reach their EOL (End of Life). The Korean giant will be updating the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note, its flagship devices for 2011, to Android 4.2.2 sometime this year.

Samsung added a lot of new features to the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy Note when it rolled out the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the devices. It was assumed that with this is going to be the last software update for these handsets, since they were pretty old anyway. However, Samsung thinks otherwise and will be bringing Android 4.2.2 to them, even though Android 4.2 does not really bring anything major to the table.

Other devices that Samsung will be bringing Android 4.2.2 to include the Galaxy Ace 2, Galaxy S III Mini, Galaxy Beam, Galaxy Express , Galaxy Grand DUOS and the Galaxy Grand.

Samsung will also be updating the Galaxy S III and its various variants, along with the Note 2 and Galaxy Note 8/10.1 to Android 5.0, when Google launches it later this year at Google I/O. Keep in mind that this list is not final, and Samsung can change its decision anytime they want, so don’t get your hopes too high.

    The update should help keep the models marketable, especially given the release of Galaxy S4.
