Samsung has been trying to release suitable updates for many of their devices, especially for the high end ones, but apparently there are some bad news for the SGS3 and Note 2 users. The Galaxy S3 and the Note 2 are currently featured by 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, but it shouldn’t take too long before the latest update arrival – Jelly Bean 4.2.2 as Samsung Galaxy S4 is already running on Android 4.2.2. Unfortunately, the latest info are saying that the OTA firmware will be delayed by Samsung, so no 4.2.2 for your S3 and Note 2 yet.
The delay is due to issues with the new TouchWiz and user interface. Samsung believed that a June release might be available and hasn’t yet confirmed the delay. However, SamMobile has posted the following statement: “Samsung delayed 4.2.2 for Note II and S III. Reason new TW for S III and Note II”. The update is rumored to bring some of the features of the GS4 to the Galaxy S3, including intelligent rotation, updated S-Voice and Adapt Display.
The date of the 4.2.2 update release hasn’t been announced yet, and Samsung refuses to comment the rumors regarding the delay.
The Galaxy S3 has been released July 2012 and has a super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of 720 x 1280 pixels. Also, its specs are including 16/32 GB storage memory, 2 GB RAM and a MicroSD card which supports up to 64MB. The device has two cameras, the rear one of 8MP, with autofocus and LED flash, and the front one having 1.9MP. It’s not a bad phone, considering the specs so we believe the waiting is worthwhile.
On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has been released in September 2012 and came with the S Pen stylus. It has a 5.5 inch, Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of 720 x 1280 pixels and also an 8MP rear camera and a 1.9MP front one for video-chatting.
As for the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update release, we’ll get back to you when we find out more. Hopefully Samsung will soon say something about this. We’re guessing this might happen at the event on June 20.
