Any clue that AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note owners had in regards to the potential roll out its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update have vanished as a carrier that typically rolls out its Samsung software updates in close proximity has taken down its specific timing for its Galaxy Note Jelly Bean update.
Back in late February, we told you, that based on timing for the Rogers Samsung Galaxy Note Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, that the AT&T Galaxy Note Jelly Bean update could roll out at some point in March. Rogers, which is the Canadian version of AT&T, typically rolls out its updates close to AT&T updates, at least when it comes to Samsung phones.
As we’ve noted, with the Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update, Rogers rolled out its update on December 2nd and AT&T rolled its update out on December 3rd. With the Galaxy Note Ice Cream Sandwich update, Rogers rolled its version of the update out on July 13th while AT&T’s Galaxy Note ICS update landed on July 10th.
By no means does this confirm that the Galaxy Note Andoid 4.1 updates will roll out in close proximity of each other but based on the history of Rogers and AT&T, it makes it a distinct possibility. Unfortunately for both Rogers and AT&T Galaxy Note owners, Rogers has updated its upgrade page in recent days and the information isn’t pretty.
Instead of listing a specific roll out time frame as it does with many other devices, Rogers now lists the Galaxy Note upgrade as “Pending software submission from device manufacturer.” What this means is that Samsung has not submitted the update to them yet, at least according to this information, and it’s something that could mean a lengthy wait for not only owners on Rogers but on AT&T as well.
What this means is that the only insight that Rogers and AT&T Galaxy Note owners had on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean roll out timing is now gone and it’s now back to square one in terms of the wait.
The good news is that the Galaxy Note Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update hit more users yesterday as Galaxy Note owners in Korea received their upgrade to Android 4.1 and that’s a sign of progress which is always a good sign when it comes to Android updates.
