Earlier this week, Google announced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which offers a host of new features including “Project Butter” and Google Now.
Samsung released its official statement on the update today. As you would expect, it’s about as generic as possible.
Samsung will soon announce which additional devices are eligible for the Jelly Bean update. As the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer, Samsung leads the Android community with best-in-class devices like the Galaxy S III, and is creating new device categories with products like the Galaxy Note. Samsung has delivered the most Nexus-branded lead OS devices and we are pleased that Google will be bringing Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S customers the first experiences of Jelly Bean on a handheld device.
It does sound like Samsung will update its flagship Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note to Android 4.1, but that is pure speculation until we hear something more official.
