Samsung is reportedly working on rolling out Android Jelly Bean upgrade for its lineup of Galaxy tablets. The South Korean tech giant is planning to update the Galaxy Tab 2 devices to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean followed by the latest one - Android 4.2.2.
According to a SamMobile report, the company will stop supporting the Galaxy Tab 2 after the Android 4.2.2 update. The Jelly Bean update status for the first generation Galaxy tablets including GT-7300 and GT-7500 is same as the Tab 2 series.
After resolving the security flaw, which was discovered on Galaxy S2, Galaxy Note 2 and multiple Samsung devices powered by Exynos 4210 and Exynos 4412 processor which use the company's kernel sources, Samsung has once again started to test Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware for Galaxy Tab 7.7 (GT-P6800) and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus (GT-P6200).
Further, the report claims that Samsung is testing the updates on Nvidia Tegra 2 T20 processors in order to know the compatibility. Hence, Samsung's smartphones and tablets powered by dual-core processor will receive software update until Android 4.2.2.
As far as the roll out date is concerned, Samsung intended to upgrade all the Galaxy tablets during Q2 and Q3 this year to either Android 4.1.2 or directly to Android 4.2.2.
Going by earlier rumors, the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OTA update will be the last upgrade that old Samsung devices including Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note will receive. On the other hand, all the latest Samsung devices such as Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Note 7.0 and Galaxy Note 10.1 are expected to be updated with the upcoming Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
