Today we received, through our inside sources, the pre-list of upcoming Android updates to be rolled out by the Korean giant, Samsung. The list suggests the name of smartphones that are going to receive the Android 4.2.2 update and later on will receive Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie update after its official release.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Note, Galaxy S2, and Galaxy S3 are expected to receive the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean soon. Samsung will start rolling out the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for both Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 by the end of this month. It is likely that this update will come after the announcement of Android 5.0 (Key Lime Pie) at Google I/O on May 15th.
Samsung will update Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update but this will be the last update for these devices, but no date is yet announced.
The Android 4.2.2 update will bring the notable features and performance improvements in these earlier flagship devices of Samsung. The Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update may not bring the Galaxy S4 ROM update to these devices but will bring Galaxy S4 like camera app, health apps, and other intelligent features.
A tweet from a reliable internal source for Samsung related leaks, SamMobile, has confirmed that both Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update is coming by the end of May or in starting of June.
The new list has also suggested the name of devices, which will receive future updates as well and guess what, Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 are scheduled to receive the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie update as well. The first generation Galaxy Note and Galaxy S2 are going to receive their last official Android update in the form of 4.2.2 Jelly Bean firmware update.
The good news is that all the major devices released back in 2012 and devices which have been released and yet to be released in 2013 will be eligible to receive the at least two more major Android firmware updates officially. Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Note 8.0, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, and Galaxy Note 10.1 are major player to get Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie update in future.
