Samsung Galaxy S Advance Jelly Bean – Android 4.2.2 Means End Of The Road ?

Samsung Galaxy S Advance: Jelly Bean Android 4.2.2 To Mean End of Support ?


The Galaxy S Advance, alongside the Galaxy Ace 2, has been slated for a Jelly Bean update since back in September, when we got word that both devices will not receive Ice Cream Sandwich, and that instead, they’ll receive Android 4.1. That’s a pretty big leap, jumping from Gingerbread to Jelly Bean, but as many of you already know by now, the S Advance is the one that actually managed to take a leap into Android 4.1 territory, with Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 still being a Gingerbread gadget to this date.

Nevertheless, the situation with the Galaxy S Advance isn’t perfect either. Back in January, Jelly Bean arrived on the respective device in Russia, and ever since then the update hasn’t actually expanded in other regions.

That being said, I know that many of you are waiting for answers, but today we’ll address a slightly different question, and that’s “when will Samsung stop supporting the S Advance?”

Samsung Galaxy S Advance Jelly Bean Android 4.2.2

About a month ago we’ve taken a sneak peek into the future of the S Advance, and more recently we’ve learned a few extra details that you should find interesting.


Apparently, according to the latest reports, the Galaxy S Advance will benefit from Android 4.2.2 in the future, but Samsung will discontinue supporting the gadget after that. This means that once Android 5 arrives, the S Advance will not be among the gadgets that will be on the waiting list, and it’s not the only Samsung gadget either. The Samsung Galaxy S2, the OG Galaxy Note as well as the Ace 2 will not get any OS updates after 4.2.2.

Not the best news to have, but to be honest, I didn’t expect the S Advance to get Jelly Bean to begin with, so at least we now know that the gadget will get to eventually benefit from Android 4.2.2 at one point in the future.

Thanks Sam Mobile for the heads-up regarding future updates on the Samsung Galaxy S Advance.
