Jelly Bean for 2 Galaxy devices coming to Canada soon


It seems 2 of Samsungs Galaxy devices are in line to be updated to Jelly Bean 4.1 in February. Many ppl using the Galaxy S2x & original Galaxy Note have been eagerly waiting for their turn to update their devices & give Android 4.1 Jelly Bean a try.
Well it looks like that wait is soon coming to an end as Canadian provider Telus has stated the update for those 2 devices will be pushed out some time in February. With Rogers earlier this month being tipped to be releasing these updates also in February this seems to be a Canada wide update across all carriers, which Samsung is known to do & did with the ICS updates of both of these devices.

The update brings many new things to these two devices like Google Now, a new version of TouchWiz (Nature UX) that is present on the Galaxy S3 & Note 2, Project Butter & More. Plus the Galaxy Note is in for another updated premium suite that will bring many features from the Galaxy Note 2 to the older sibling.

With only a month to go on its anyone’s guess exactly when these updates will begin but to most a specified month is great news it’s self. Stay tuned here at Team Android Canada & I will bring you more as it becomes available.
