Samsung Sweden confirms Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S II, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 10.1 before end of the year

Samsung Sweden has announced a slew of Jelly Bean updates today for a wide range of Galaxy devices including the Galaxy S II, original Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 10.1. According to the official statement, all three devices are set to receive the upgrade to Android 4.1 before the end of the year.

The Galaxy S II will see the update in November, while the original Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 10.1 are both slated to get the firmware upgrade at some point in Q4. All updates will be available over-the-air via Samsung’s official Kies application. Of course, this announcement applies only to Sweden-specific devices, though it’s heartwarming to see at least some sort of release date.

  • That’s good for my Swedish Android brethren. I suspect my Epic 4G Touch will finally die once it recieves JB as I read something not to long ago of my phone receiving that update..

    I think you mean the S II

    • My Samsung Epic 4G Touch Galaxy S2. My phone is damaged..I think, and should explode with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update.

    I cant believe how badly some of these companies sling the bs. It was months ago that samsungs pres announced to the world that the note 10.1 was getting the jb “very soon”. Now theyre talking end of year for sweden at least end of first quarter for the US. Cant ANY electonics company start telling the truth and start providing good customer service ??????? PLEASE JUST ONE AND YOULL BE RICHLY REWARDED I PROMISE. PEOPLE WILL FLOCK TO YOUR COMPANY. Anyone says google nexus and you should be banned. Im talking a real machine with an sd card slot, removable battery and a user friendly interface out of the box.
