These updates, along with future ones, would make Samsung the world's most prolific Android Jelly Bean device carrier.
The Galaxy S3 is one of Samsung's most popular phones ever, selling over 10 million units in its first month and creating enough stir to give the Apple iPhone a run for its money. The Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet is a ten-inch tablet designed to compete with the iPad and offer a unique experience through its S Pen stylus.
The fact that both of these will be running Jelly Bean soon is a victory for Samsung against Apple, which will begin rolling out the new iOS 6 operating system on its iPads and iPhones this fall.
Samsung also has the Galaxy Note 2, which will launch sometime in October with Jelly Bean pre-installed.
Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean offers a smoother, more intuitive interface as well as new features such as Google's voice-assistant program, Google Now.
Android upgrades are slow to hit consumer devices because each individual manufacturer usually tailors them, then has to send to wireless carriers for approval and distribution.
No exact release dates for any of the Jelly Bean updates have been given, although it is safe to say that all the devices in this article will most likely have Jelly Bean by the end of 2012 since Samsung will need all the marketing push it can get against Apple's holiday lineup, especially after the recent lawsuit.
