Most Samsung watchers have their eyes locked ahead on the upcoming Galaxy S4, but that doesn't mean the South Korean electronics manufacturer is going to ignore its previous stars, the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2. In fact, a recent tweet from well-known Samsung-centric website SamMobile states that an Android 4.2.2 update will land on the devices in May or June.
"Android 4.2.2 updates Galaxy S III and Note II in May/June," SamMobile tweeted.
The update would put both devices on par with the Galaxy S4, which will run Android 4.2.2 right out of the box at the time of its release (which will start in April).
Samsung has not officially commented on the matter, so until then, take it as rumor, although such a release time frame would make sense to keep Samsung's lineup as updated as possible against the slew of smartphones releasing in the first half of 2013. SamMobile does also have a track record of nabbing insider Samsung information.
While barebones Android 4.2.2 details can be found here, Samsung, as usual, will be adding its own layers on top. The update is rumored to give the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 features found on the Galaxy S4. A similar move was made by Samsung when it gave the Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note features that debuted with the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2, such as a new UI and Multi-View.
The update, as usual, will probably roll out in batches, and take much longer to arrive on carrier-tied variants such as those in the United States on Verizon or AT&T.
