Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 updates will end at Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
Some of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 2 models have already received Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, so users are probably wondering about future updates. Well, it looks like no Galaxy Tab 2 will receive updates higher than Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
Sam Mobile has received “exclusive information” about Samsung’s plans regarding upcoming updates, and says that all its dual-core tablets and smartphones won’t go past Android 4.2.2. This seemingly means that tablets released in 2011 (like the Galaxy Tab 10.1 P7500 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 P7300) are also going to get 4.2.2 eventually.
These details are in line with what we’ve heard last week – namely that lots of dual-core Samsung smartphones would be updated to Android 4.2, but not further.
Meanwhile, if we’re talking about particular updates, it looks like T-Mobile USA’s Galaxy Tab 2 is receiving Android 4.1.2 as of today.
Later this year, Samsung will unveil new Galaxy Tab 3 models. These, of course, should run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, with upgrades to Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie coming after launch. I assume all new Tabs will have quad-core processors. We will bring more on this when new info arrives.
