Samsung might skip Android 4.2.2 update in favor of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean

A new rumor says that Samsung might skip updating their 2012 flagship Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note II to the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean in favor of the already leaked Android 4.3 Jelly Bean build.

Rumor says that Samsung is on the verge of cancelling the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note II, and that ain’t bad news. The same rumor gives plenty reason for why Samsung would take such a step. Instead of taking the two-step approach of updating their yesteryear flagships with the latest Jelly Bean build, Samsung is instead working on an Android 4.3 Jelly Bean build for both devices, which will allow the OEM to skip an update in between. What have we got to complain? As long as end users get a newer version of Android, they’re happy!

While older reports from earlier this year said that Samsung will most definitely update their top Smartphones to the (then believed) to-be released Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie (which obviously has been a no-show), the update to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean might be the last stop for these devices. Of course, the Galaxy S4 will most definitely be treated to Android 5.0 KLP without a doubt, but with the huge number of S4 models also in the wings (who rightfully deserve the update as well), older models from yesteryear might just get trimmed off.
