Which Galaxy Tabs will get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean?

Galaxy Tab Jelly Bean

Samsung has not told us which devices will be receiving Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but I will make some educated guesses based off of past trends. Samsung usually gives one core Android update. The updates do tend to take quite a long time though. First let me tell you which devices almost definitely will not receive the update. The original Galaxy Tab, Galaxy Tab 10.1v, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 8.9, Galaxy Tab 7.7, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, and the Galaxy Note will not get the update. Most of those devices will end up on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich though.

I would wager that all the Galaxy Tabs that launched with Ice Cream Sandwich will get the update to Jelly Bean. That means the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will probably get updated to Jelly Bean. The Galaxy Note 10.1 will also probably either launch on Jelly Bean or receive an update to it.

Of course this is all speculation until Samsung tells us their update plans.

    As Jelly Bean is 4.1 why would we not get it on the GALAXY NOTE? As the NEXUS S has been announced to be getting Jelly Bean in July & it’s specs being not half those of the GALAXY NOTE I gotta say that I believe your incorrect in assuming the NOTE won’t see some Jelly Bean Love. I don’t think we will see it for a few months but I have to think it’s definitely on the horizon. – KID ANDROID.

      Samsung update their devices only on marketing interest. You want a phablet with Jelly Bean? Spend again 500$ to buy the new Galaxy Note 2. Otherwise, search for a more serious company.

      Well the Nexus S is a Nexus device. Nexus devices uses stock Android and get more updates than the average device

    Recent convert to Samsung who is now soon to jump ship because Samsung just doesn’t give a damn.

    Samsung is the WORST company ever on Android update. They release update only on marketing interest. Hopefully someone like Cyanogen will port JB on my Galaxy Tab 10.1, but on a thing I’m sure: Samsung, never again.
    From now on, if I will buy a new Android tablet, I will get a Nexus, with official Google updates, or a Archos, that still has the best customer service.

    My guess is none based on their track record. My Galaxy Tab 10.1 will definitely be my last Samsung Android device.

    Android 4.1 Jelly Bean won’t have Flash anymore! Don’t forget.
