Samsung Sets Up Jelly Bean Update Page for Devices, Galaxy S3 Only Listed as “Coming Soon!”

Samsung now has a support page dedicated to listing out the devices that they expect to update to Jelly Bean. The page lists out the Galaxy Nexus (both Sprint and Verizon versions), the Nexus S 4G, and the Galaxy S3 on all of the major U.S. carriers. As you’ll see below, they show that Jelly Bean is already available for all of the Nexus devices listed (which it is), but would only go as far as “Coming Soon!” for all Galaxy S3 variants. According to this page, the list will be altered as needed or updated when updates or information about those are released. 

One thing we are a bit concerned about is the lack of a Galaxy S2 presence. The device has been out for some time now, but is still one of the better phones on the planet and surely can run Android 4.1. In fact, Samsung has already committed to updating the GS2 overseas, so we can’t imagine that this list won’t eventually contain GS2 variants as well. So if you own the previous version of the Galaxy S2, let’s not freak out yet.

    I can’t wait till I able to cut Verizon, not only are they overpriced, there customer service is mediocre and they totally suck in when it comes to providing info and updates! By far the worst. I don’t understand how AT&T can get an update so fast for the SG3 when Verizon was one of the 1st carriers to boast and offer the SG3! over them.

    might have to go back to iphone. at least they are honest about software upgrades.

    The Verizon Wireless phrase “Coming Soon” means the same as the check is in the mail to people who never pay their bills. It would greatly increase loyalty to Verizon Wireless, if they would value their client base that owns a terrific phone in the Samsung Galaxy S3, by Expediting the Galaxy S3 Upgrade to Jelly Bean 4.1. That means ASAP!!!!!

    VZW Galaxy Tab 10.1?

  • Wait…. Verizon releases updates?

  • JB for VZW S3 better have working copy and paste; had to root mine to fix it! Otherwise, amazing in every way (oh, I’m also using Nova Launcher)

    • Odd…mine worked out of the box

    • Jay Seville

      can you help me get my copy past back?! I NEED it for mobile business I do. So frustrated.

  • Steve

    Now I wait for HTC to do the same with ics on my Tbolt.

  • Bitch bitch moan bitch moan waaa Verizon blah blah blah stfu.

  • WalkerNA

    Weird, I don’t see my Droid Charge on this list

  • Chris Hollenbeck

    “Coming soon” is not a standard of time that I trust anymore regarding phone updates.

  • brkshr

    I have Jelly Bean on my International S3… Neener neener 😛

    • HueThree

      carrier unlocked ftw

  • austin konja

    VZW S3, coming soon, or now with AOKP CM10, or my current rom Liquid!

  • Davros

    I have to admit I like the new Touch Wiz but really wanted Jelly Bean. So I have been using JellyWiz custom release 7 and really like it so far.

  • GS3 Jelly Bean update?


    By the end of summer — 2013.



  • I’m still willing to be money that Sprint users don’t see a JB ROM from Sprint untilSummer 2013

    • Actually there was a leaked JB for the Sprint S3 a few days ago. Check out XDA.

  • I put CM10 on my Verizon GS3 last night… It’s a load off my shoulder’s not having to worry about when my phone will receive and OEM Jelly bean update.

    • paddypants

      i know that feel, bro.

      i wish it had true burst shot, but other than that, it seems pretty grand.

  • Jorge Guaman

    lets freak out now about the SG2 varients not been in the list. With the track record from our lovely phone companies it would not surprise me if they leave the SG2 out. we know they stop support after 6 months.

  • Bionic

    exactly what i tell my wife, “my jelly is coming soon!”

  • JohnPA2006

    Patience grasshoppa ! You will has Jelly Beanz very soon.
    Cant wait.

  • Phil Austin

    such a tease.

  • Guest

    Dat AOKP :E

    • fixxmyhead

      thats still buggy

      • S2556

        not on my GS3!! runs like butter

        • fixxmyhead

          well performance wise it might run fine but i meant feature wise. the tap to focus doesnt work on the camera, glitches when recording in 1080p, panorama camera doesnt work, got a force close that made the whole phone unresponsive screen went all black and the power button did nothing, had to take out the battery, all of this within 5 min after flashing. this happened on my hercules which is officially supported. aokp is far from the stableness that touchwiz rom offer til then ill stick with the better working touchwiz roms

          • Mack

            Try CM10, you will be more than pleased with the stability.

  • MikeSaver

    I think for the Verizon one they should change it from “Comng soon” to “Coming in a long time” or something way more clever

    • michael arazan

      Verizon SG3 JellyBean Coming: “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….”

  • TCStheSecond
