Finally, the Jelly Bean v4.1 upgrade for Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 has been initiated by developers. The update arrived much later than expected. However, still it is confined to customers in Asian markets, with foreign regions requested to be patient for some more time.
Samsung encountered a troublesome situation in March, which led to postponement of the Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7. Possibly, the Korean tech had some issues with the processor and its performance compatibility with the new Android version. But Samsung seems to have sorted out the issues and rolled out the update successfully.
The update has been released in several Asian regions on some specific carriers. Singapore, Indonesia (StarHub), Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand (Globe), Philippines (Sun), Singapore (SingTel) and Malaysia have been offered this beneficial software update. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 operated on Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 from which the device’s OS will be updated to Android Jelly Bean 4.1. The latter version has more utility specs than the former and thus, would benefit your tablet.
The new OS update endows the device with speedier UI, improved calendar and browser, enhanced camera application, multitasking, widgets, etc. This software update is an Over-the-Air (OTA) update. However, the update is available via Kies. Currently, the Tab 7.7 GT-P6800 is eligible for this update. Probably, LTE-capable i815 and GT-P6810 will be late to get this software update.
Primitively, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 was released on Android Honeycomb v3.2, from where it was updated to Ice Cream Sandwich v4.0 and now finally to Jelly Bean v4.1.2. Overall, this newly rolled out update would prove quite favorable for your tablet. You can enjoy a new series of specs on your tablet. If not a whole new series, better and enhanced variants of existing specs would be facilitated with a newer OS.
