A recent report suggests that Samsung's two most successful Android smartphones for 2012, the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note 2, will receive Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean in May or June 2013.
Recently, Samsung announced the much-awaited Galaxy S4 but it seems that the company has not forgotten about its old warhorses and will roll out the software update to the older flagship models as well.
Samsung has sold millions of Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 and it should not come as a surprise if the Korean company wants to keep its customers happy with a software update.
"Android 4.2.2 updates Galaxy S III and Note II May / June," tweets SamMobile.
Samsung's latest upcoming smartphone, the Galaxy S4, will be the company's first smartphone to run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean firmware update will bring some of the features that debuted on the Galaxy S4 to the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2.
Samsung's own user interface, the TouchWiz Nature UX, received a slightly revised design. After you update your Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Note 2 to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean you will also be able to enjoy the refreshed design, as in the Galaxy S4.
The Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean will bring along some Jelly Bean-specific features such as lockscreen widgets, Quick Settings in the notifications area, expandable notifications and many more other features.
Samsung is known for bringing new features along with its new top-end devices. The Galaxy S3 brought Smart Stay, Smart Alert, Pop-up-Play and Direct Call features to the handset, while the Galaxy Note 2 brought Air View and the highly-touted Multi-Window View features to the phablet.
Samsung continues the tradition with the Galaxy S4, as the device will bring features like Smart Scroll, Smart Pause, or finger Air View. Users will want to see these features in the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 after the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update is rolled out to these devices.
Samsung has not confirmed the release date of the software update and we will have to wait until more details are revealed by the Korean conglomerate.
