Samsung’s Galaxy Note II will apparently be skipping its update to Android 4.2.2, which, at first, sounds really, really bad for a flagship device. However, there’s a silver lining; Samsung will reportedly just skip 4.2.2 and update the device straight to Android 4.3. With Samsung’s Google Play edition Galaxy S 4, they obviously have some inside access to newer versions of Android, so this isn’t too much of a stretch to believe.
No word on the Galaxy S III, but considering its 4.2.2 update has been delayed for this long, we may see it skip straight to newer versions of Android as well.
