Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean" Heading To Selected HTC, Asus And Samsung Devices
Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean" Heading To Selected HTC, Asus And Samsung Devices.A popular question I’m getting from Android device owner is is “When will I see Jelly Bean?”
Depending on what hardware you have, you might see it — sometime — or you might never see it unless you buy new hardware.
Top Android smartphone and tablet manufacturers have confirmed that the Android 4.1 “Jelly Bean” update it headed out to a selection of hardware — mostly premium devices — including the HTC One X, the HTC One S, and the Asus Transformer Prime.
Jelly Bean brings with it a number of cool features, including the “Project Butter” which makes Android run far smoother than previous Android versions, “Google Now” which tries to predict what data you’re going to need and get it for you before you ask for it, Voice Search — competition for Apple‘s Siri — as well as a far superior notifications system.
So, when do you get this cool stuff?
I’ve asked a number of top Android hardware makers and this is what I’ve received back so far.
“We are pleased to announce that many of our tablet products are scheduled to receive an update to Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. The ASUS Transformer Pad, ASUS Transformer Pad Prime and ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity are all scheduled to receive Android 4.1 updates in the coming months. We will provide further guidance on our expected timeframes for these updates near their release.”HTC
“We know HTC fans are excited to get their hands on Google’s latest version of Android. At this point in time, we can confirm that we have plans to upgrade our HTC One X, HTC One XL and HTC One S to Jelly Bean. Please stay tuned for more updates regarding device upgrades, timing and other details about HTC and Jelly Bean.”Samsung
No official statement, but an official did confirm to me that an update was in progress for Samsung’s flagship handset, the Galaxy S III handset, along with the Galaxy S II. Galaxy Nexus owners have already started to receive the “Jelly Bean” update.
