Samsung bringing Jelly Bean to Note, GS III soon Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S III, Note and Note 10.1 will be getting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, soon.
Each of the devices is currently running on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.

During their IFA press conference, the company said the updates are coming "very soon" but did not elaborate on a precise time frame.

A number of leaked ROMs for the GS III, which are almost final, means the development has been going fine and is almost complete, at least for the smartphone.

For now it is a wait and see but we would anticipate a late September release.

Yeah.....sad thing is, you couldn't be more right on.

HTC however is usually on point and I'm anxiously awaiting JB for my Amaze 4G

2 weeks ago Samsung released 4.0.4 r3, it's ok.

I think sept was the due date for jellybean.

The ICS is good for updates because they only need to come from the device maker not the carrier anymore, so you just get OTA updates when they release them.

Samsung, stop talking cr@p about the SGS2 (it is way more than powerful enough to run it) & get JB to it too asap.

The S2 is covered by the Apple lawsuit. The S3 is not. Samsung may be constrained from released Jellybean for the S2.

What has the type of Android OS the phone runs got to do with Apple.....or for that matter a lawsuit that only applies to the US as far as the rest of the world is concerned?

You can already have it on a rooted SGS2 so why not just hurry up & do the official release?
