Samsung Galaxy S3 will most probably get the goodness of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in the 4th quarter of the year.
But a new report suggests that this news is way too far from being confirmed.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update in Q4 not certain
Jelly Bean was first shown to the world at the Google I/O previous week. The latest addition to the Android family promises many improvements to Ice Cream Sandwich, the most notable of them being Project Butter, Google Now and Google’s very own voice assistant which unlike Siri will work offline.
Some time back techradar reported that Galaxy Nexus, XOOM and the Nexus S will be one of the first handsets to get the goodness of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean but the Samsung Galaxy S3 “won’t be too far behind.”
However, the report was later updated by techradar that when then they directly asked Samsung about the Galaxy S3 getting Jelly Bean story, Samsung declined to directly comment on S3 and issued a general statement instead which mainly pointed out that when a new version of the OS is released they would review the possibility of its implementation in their products which feature Android OS. Below is the exact word which techradar got from Samsung.
“In the case that a new version of an Android operating system is publicly announced and released, Samsung will review the possibility of implementation to existing Samsung products with the Android operating system.”
“Such a review will be based on various factors including, the overall effect of the update to Samsung products, the system requirements, the structural limitations, and the level of cooperation from the component suppliers and the software licensors. If Samsung decides to make the update available to the users it will be released upon successful completion of development.”
So, Samsung Galaxy S3 users should not get their hope too high because, nothing is set in stone yet.
