Samsung will update Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S 3 to Android 4.2.2 till End of May [Update]

 

Samsung posted an update on it’s official Facebook page for the Galaxy Note 2 today stating that the Note 2 as well as the Galaxy S3 smartphones will be receiving an update to Jelly Bean 4.2.2 by the end of May.

 

 

There was no mention of which versions of the phones will be getting the update first, but it’s safe to assume that global versions will get the update first, and after that, an carrier branded handsets.
The recently released Samsung Galaxy S4 is alone in “Galaxy” Family that keeps the latest and greatest version of Android (Jelly Bean 4.2.2). No word on if the update will reach the Galaxy S2 or original Note at any time in the near future.

UPDATE: the Facebook page with this informations is not an official Samsung Mobile page, but is an fan page dedicated to the Galaxy Note 2, so consider this as a “rumor”

Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 have been waiting patiently for their devices to get upgraded to Android 4.2.2. Currently, both of Samsung's 2012 flagships are running on Android 4.1.2 , which is two iterations behind the latest version of Android Jelly Bean.

Now we've heard that both devices won't get Android 4.2.2 at all, but fear not because they are expected to be updated straight to Android 4.3. The news comes from a German operator who confirmed their information on their customer support forums, although no information was given on the timescale for its roll-out.

Getting new versions of Android running on older devices is always time-consuming , but we'd still expect the update to land in the next couple of months. What improvements can owners of the Galaxy S3 and Note 2 expect when Android 4.3 finally lands ?

We can't be sure exactly which new features will come to Samsung's smartphones, but both devices should get support for actionable notifications and the new "Daydream" interactive screen saver. They are also likely to get lock-screen widgets, the ability to take panoramic photos (Photosphere) and support for restricted profiles.
