Samsung Galaxy Note S3 & Note 2 Android 4.2.2 Update Not Anytime Soon?

By  | 

If you own the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or the Samsung Galaxy S3 you will be waiting to get your hands on the update to Jelly Bean 4.2.2. However you could have to wait until November or December before seeing the update. The update may be dependent on how well the Samsung Galaxy S4 sells. SamMobile were talking on Twitter and they said that the delay issue was down to TouchWiz. We have not got any idea if the 1GB of memory has anything to do with it.

The Jelly Bean 4.2.2 update recently leaked online and it came with transitions, new lock screen, apps and effects. The only thing it did not have was the camera app.

On the other hand sales of the Samsung Galaxy S4 have been said to be the issue.

When the device was revealed it sold more than its predecessors.

Samsung may want to it to sell more and not hand out the update so that it keeps the exclusive apps.

Of course if the update was released and older devices got the apps from the newer handset, the sales of the Samsung Galaxy S4 could drop.

Samsung may be waiting for Key Lime Pie for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which could arrive in October. People would have the choice then of the Samsung Galaxy S3 with Jelly Bean 4.2.2 and Samsung Galaxy S4 apps or Key Lime Pie and the Samsung Galaxy S4.
