Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy S3… the Samsung phones getting Jelly Bean

With Apple’s latest iPhone incarnation going down a storm the world over, Samsung has got be feeling a little left out at the moment.

Yet the battle for smartphone supremacy in the run-up to Christmas is far from over, and Samsung has a couple of tricks up its sleeve for the coming months.

One of those tricks is the latest operating system from Google – Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. This impressive OS received rave reviews upon its launch earlier this summer, but uptake has been slow so far.

This is hardly surprising; some Android handsets are still waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich. But it looks like Jelly Bean is finally coming to the flagship Android manufacturer.

Samsung and Google have enjoyed a happy and very successful partnership so far, and this OS update will surely do a world of good in the battle with Apple. So what Samsung devices are getting Jelly Bean?

Samsung Galaxy S3

With an OS update roll-out, the best place to start is with the flagship device. Samsung has done just that, and the S3 OS update is already underway elsewhere in the world.

The first market was, for some reason, Poland, and Samsung has confirmed that other European countries will get the update in the near future.

As for the UK, we’ve had no confirmed roll-out date, but Samsung has said it wants to deliver Jelly Bean to S3s in most major markets by the end of October.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2

If you simply can’t wait for the Jelly Bean update in your Samsung device, you can always buy the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 when it’s released.

Due to launch in the UK on Monday, the Galaxy Note 2 comes with Jelly Bean as standard, along with a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and a revamped S-Pen stylus.

Other Samsung devices getting Jelly Bean

It’s not just the flagship devices that are getting the Jelly Bean treatment, Samsung confirmed recently that a whole raft of handsets will be updated.

So if you’re the owner of a Galaxy S2, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Ace 2 or Galaxy Beam, amongst others, watch this space for the Jelly Bean roll-out.
