Samsung Galaxy Note Jelly Bean Rollout To Resume Early Next Month ?

Samsung Galaxy Note: Jelly Bean Availability Still Limited


We’ve been rather excited when the Samsung Galaxy Note has received its Jelly Bean Android 4.1 update, but as you may already be aware of by now, Jelly Bean arrived only in a handful of regions so there’s still a long way to go before we can say that the Note is truly a Jelly Bean gadget.

Anyhow, for some reason, we haven’t heard much about the update for the past three or four weeks, and it almost feels like it has been halted for some reason. In fact, TELUS has laid down the cards and already made it clear that the Jelly Bean update for its Samsung Galaxy Note model has been pushed back.

Anyway, today we bring you more news regarding Android 4.1 on the original phablet, so if you’re the owner of one such gadget and you’re still rocking Ice Cream Sandwich, this might interest you.

Samsung Galaxy Note Jelly Bean (Android 4.1)

According to Samsung Ukraine, the Samsung Galaxy Note will receive Jelly Bean (at least in that particular region) starting with the first day of April, which doesn’t sound too bad considering the fact that we’re nearing the end of March.


Nevertheless, we should also keep in mind that the release date is tentative and not set in stone. In fact, a previous post by Samsung Ukraine indicated that the S Advance will get its fair share of Jelly Bean on February 18, but it didn’t happen. However, this “April 1st” release date somewhat corresponds with TELUS’s delayed time-frame, so we might be in luck as the Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Note might soon expand to other regions as well.

All in all, we need to wait and see how the story develops. Evidently we’ll continue to keep an eye on Samsung and we’ll let you know what’s going on as soon as the situation changes.

    I can’t wait until jellybean comes out. It is going to be great!

    Android Magazine just stated they believe we will not see Jelly Bean on the Note Vrs #1. The more likely scenario is that in May when Android Vrs 5 becomes available, the Note will get that version, hence no real dates for Jelly Bean and the quietness. Vrs 5 isn’t that far away. I guess I’m optimistic but there doesn’t seem to be any other logical reason for this delay.

      Optimism is great but I doubt the Note will get key lime pie (or whatever it will be called). I’m at the point where I’m just waiting patiently for my upgrade to come around.

      Hi Anjani,

    I dont get why samsung nor att keeps holding up the jelly bean release, on the phone that essentially started the entire trend of large screen phones, and pushed samsung into the number 1 spot for mobile sales….youd think samsung especially would have pushed jelly bean out asap to continue interest of the estimated 11 to 15 million note 1 owners, rather than this continual annoyance of delay after delay…just my 2 cents, but considering this phone is the original phablet, and most owners are still under contract, I persoanlly would want to keep them happy to intice them into future sales, rather than piss them off and possibly lose interest in samsung as s4 and note 3 are about to drop…
