It's been rumored before, but now the signs for Samsung Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note owners are looking a bit more hopeful. This morning unofficial Samsung blog SamMobile is reporting that sources have told it that both the (international) Galaxy S2 and original Galaxy Note are be due to receive updates to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean later this year.
The site reports that internal feasibility tests by Samsung have proved successful, and that a September to October timeframe is estimated for the S2, presumably with the Note following shortly thereafter.
While SamMobile has proved accurate with this kind of information in the past, bear in mind that this is not an official confirmation from Samsung, which has said nothing publicly on Jelly Bean for either device. We'd also expect a longer wait for the U.S. versions of the both phones to get Jelly Bean, even if the reported timeframe for international updates holds true. As ever, U.S. carriers will want to test and verify the new firmware before pushing out to customers.
