Samsung Galaxy S4 is the first Android device (apart from Google's own Nexus devices) to run on the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and now many eager Galaxy smartphone owners are waiting for the software to make its way to their devices. A previous report indicated that Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean will make its way to Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 by May end or June beginning and with May gone, many Galaxy smartphone owners will hope to get some news regarding a software update soon.
A previous SamMobile tweet said "Android 4.2.2 for high-range devices from June #sgs3 #note2." Samsung has not yet announced the software release to any of its existing smartphones, but Galaxy fans hope that June brings Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean to Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2.
We reported previously that Samsung would start pushing out the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for its Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 by the end of May. At the time, it was speculated that the software update would be pushed out post the announcement of Android 5.0 (Key Lime Pie) at the Google I/O 2013 on May 15. However, the Google event came and went without news of Android 5.0 coming soon.
While the release of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie is still shrouded in mystery, the possibility of Android 4.2.2 making its way to Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 cannot be ruled out.
Rumors of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean have been doing the rounds and many market observers believe that Google will soon release the software update for its Nexus devices, though other smartphones like Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 will have to wait a bit longer.
At the Galaxy S4 launch, Samsung announced that the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 will get some features of the latest flagship including a completely revamped Settings UI, new S-Voice and more.
With June setting in, we will have to wait to see how swiftly the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note 2 start getting the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update.
