While most Android users now expect a long wait between updates, owners of the Samsung Galaxy S III could be receiving the Android 4.1.1 update as soon as next month. This is according to sources for Sammobile who say that while no set date had been decided on for the rollout, it could be in the August/September period.

The news is allegedly good for owners of the Samsung Galaxy S II as well. The initial testing of the update has gone well and with the device still considered to be in demand (albeit at a reduced price), there is some talk of updating the model as quickly as the sequel. The source for Sammobile says that the current thinking on the part of the Korean manufacturer is to push out the update for the Samsung Galaxy S II if the one for the Samsung Galaxy S III goes smoothly.

The insider also pointed out that Samsung's main focus is on quickly rolling out the latest software builds for its high-end models. As a result, we could see the Samsung GALAXY Note receive the Jelly Bean update following the two handsets.

Galaxy S III And II To Get Jelly bean Update Soon

Samsung may introduce Google’s latest OS not only in its current flagship device, the Samsung Galaxy S III but in the Galaxy S II as well.

According to sammobile.com, the Samsung Galaxy S III will get the Jelly Bean update soon and that Samsung is testing the 4.1 OS on the S II as well. The 4.1 update for the S III is expected to roll out in August/September 2012. The blog also goes on to say that the first tests with Jelly Bean on the S II have shown successful results.

Even though the initial tests have been successful, there is no confirmed date when the OS will hit the Samsung Galaxy S II. There is also still no word on when other Samsung devices such as the Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Tab 2 or the Galaxy Tab 7.7 will receive the update.

Even though HTC was one of the first companies to announce that its current generation smartphones, the One X and the One S will receive the Jelly Bean update, HTC also confirmed that the HTC Desire HD will not receive the Android 4.0 ICS update.

Asus has also confirmed that three of its tablets - Transformer Pad, the Transformer Pad Prime, and the Transformer Pad Infinity will also receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update.

As of today, the only device to run Jelly Bean out of the box is the Google Nexus 7, manufactured by Asus.
