Android 4.2.2 update delayed for Galaxy S III and Note II

Samsung has been busy lately with updates for many of their flagship devices, but if you enjoy the Galaxy S III or Note II, the latest update could be a bit late. We've recently seen T-Mobile and Verizon update the Galaxy S III to Android 4.1.2 (just recently) and now the next update to 4.2.2 Jelly Bean could already be facing delays. Bad news for both devices.

We're hearing many of the smart pause, smart scroll, and other features are busy being ported over from the GALAXY S 4, to the GS3 and Note II. Sadly they aren't going as well as planned. We've already seen Android 4.2.1 leak for the GS 3, but the bump to 4.2.2 isn't going quite so smooth.

According to the folks from SamMobile the update to 4.2.2 for the Note II and GS 3 is facing a delay. Both devices are currently enjoying 4.1, and now we're not sure when they'll see the latest and greatest. Between adding new features and tweaking TouchWiz, this won't come as quick as expected.

However, don't be alarmed, because overall we're not expecting too long of a delay. The GALAXY S 4 is already running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, so adding the features to old TouchWiz builds really shouldn't be that tough. While this report states the updates are facing delays, we never had a date set in stone to begin with. Good things come to those who wait, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is coming sooner than later for the GS 3 and Galaxy Note II.

    Put Jedi XP 14 ROM on my Galaxy Note 2. I haven’t even been missing not being on 4.2.2. I already have the 4.2 camera (photosphere) and the stock TW camera. Not seeing the point of rushing to 4.2.2 right now.
