The lack of the Jelly Bean update for devices like the Samsung Galaxy S3 is a good sign. Owners of the devices who are waiting for the update certainly do not think it’s good that they have been kept waiting, so how is that possible?
Lack of Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update pulling price down?
PopHerald reports that the price of the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 HSPA+ was being lowered and this is due to the Galaxy Note 2 being launched with Jelly Bean installed. Retailers have been dropping the price of the Samsung Galaxy S3 to $700 from $800 and outlets are selling the 16GB version of the handset for around $650 to $680.
Given that buyers would like to buy devices with the lastest Android version, it makes sense that they would consider the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. After all, Samsung is notorious when it comes to delivering Android updates (we all remember the Samsung Galaxy S fiasco here in the US).
Whether the price of the Samsung Galaxy S3 will continue to drop as long as the Jelly Bean update doesn’t get an official release date remains to be seen. If so, it will be interesting to see how low it goes.
