Without a doubt, the Samsung Galaxy Note and Galaxy S2 have been a huge success for the Korean manufacture selling in the millions. Both the Samsung Galaxy Note and S2 share many key similarities such as their processors, either being a Snapdragon S3s or an Exynos, however, both devices share several noticeable differences. One very key difference is the screen size. The Galaxy Note holds a whopping 5.3 inch display with a high resolution of 800X1280 whereas the Galaxy S2 has different sizes that range from 4.3 to 4.65.
Both devices are shipped with Google’s 2.3.6 Gingerbread operating system and just recently shown some Ice Cream Sandwich love making the jump from 2.3.6 to 4.0.4. After a month with the update on my Note, I have seen a noticeable improvement in daily use, gaming, performance, etc… (update available through Kies or WiFi). Ice Cream Sandwich arrived with new features available such as face unlock a brand new and unique task manager and much more. Once with Ice Cream Sandwich as my OS, I could not see how my Note would get any better.
Enter Google I/O 2012, where Google announced the latest treat named OS called “Jellybean”. Jellybean comes with a few new but interesting features. Number 1 being “Project Butter”, which is Google’s way of ensuring that 100% of the phones’s CPU is being used allowing for ultimate smoothness and finally getting rid of occasional annoying choppy animations. The second feature listed in Jellybean is “Google Now”. It has been a fact that Android powered phones have had voice recognition years before Apple’s Siri came along. “Google Now” is Android’s response to Siri and is what I like to call voice search on steroids. Google Now has support for 21 different languages, finds searches in record time, and is very accurate. Jellybean comes with more improvements to an already great OS. Though Jellybean is the newest OS for Android, Google has decided to name it Jellybean 4.1 Instead of 5.0. It is a more of an incremental software update than anything.
So will we see Jellybean on the Galaxy S2 or Note? The answer is still unconfirmed. Samsung is yet to have a statement on the devices getting Jellybean. It would be very strange if the the devices were not to get Jelly Bean, seeing how well Ice Cream Sandwich is running on both of them. Recent updates from the SamMobile website have announced that testing on the newest Samsung flagship device the Galaxy S3 has been a huge success. Other reports also say that The Galaxy S2 has been tested with Jelly Bean and was also a success and the expected release will be in Q4 of this year. The site does not confirm testing on the Note, but it seems very unlikely that Samsung will exclude the Note from this update.
