Samsung has added one more to its list of devices that won’t be provided with the Android 4.2.2 update, the Galaxy Nexus. The revelation was made by Vodafone Australia claiming the said device will be provided with the more advanced Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update instead. Till then, the device will remain stuck at Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. Among the other devices that will also be making the Android 4.3 jump include the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy S3. Telstra too has confirmed the cancellation of the Android 4.2.2 update for the Galaxy Note 2 earlier this month.
Google had launched the Android 4.3 just last week which was followed by a mad scramble among Android device manufacturers to provide the update for their respective devices. Surprisingly, the said update has already been rumored to be undergoing tests for the Google edition of the HTC One as well as the Samsung Galaxy S4 though a firm announcement for both is yet to arrive. Meanwhile, Sony has already come up with a list of devices that will be upgraded to the latest Android build. These include the Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia SP, as well as the more recent Xperia Z Ultra.
Samsung has already made it known their commitment to providing the latest Android update for its smartphones and tablet devices. This is a good sign considering users who have been holding on to the company’s erstwhile flagship devices will get to enjoy the latest Android features. However, this might not be applicable to the S2 that will get to taste Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and none beyond that.
