Samsung announces Jelly Bean plans, 15 devices on the list

Jelly Bean started rolling out for some Galaxy S III models today, and with that came an announcement from Samsung as to the plans for updating other devices to the latest version of Android. The list includes the Galaxy S II, Galaxy Note, Galaxy S Advance, Galaxy S II LTE, Galaxy Chat, Galaxy Ace 2, Galaxy Beam, Galaxy Ace Plus, Galaxy Mini 2, Galaxy S Duos, Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, Galaxy Note 10.1, and Galaxy Music. The Galaxy Music isn’t even announced, so Samsung might have outed a new device with this list.

I personally have two devices on the list, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and the Galaxy S II. I use ICS on the former, but hate it, and have no intention to move from Gingerbread on the latter unless Jelly Bean on the Tab convinces me. Seeing how long it took for Samsung to release the ICS updates, however, I’m not exactly holding any dates for updating. It’s great that the devices are actually getting Jelly Bean, but I won’t be surprised if Android 5.0 is out by the time it actually arrives for all of these devices.
