If you’re the owner of a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 tablet, a rumor is making the rounds that you’ll be interested to hear. According to the rumor, an insider at Samsung recently stated that the Galaxy 2 will be updated to Android 4.1.2. The source also claims that therewill be more Android updates for the tablet coming in the future.
The source claims that the operating system will be updated all the way to Android 4.2.2 before updates end. It’s unclear exactly how the updates will be offered between Android 4.1.2 and Android 4.2.2. The source goes on to claim that Samsung is currently testing the Android 4.1.2 update on first-generation Galaxy Tab devices.
It remains unclear if that means older Galaxy devices will be getting the Android update as well. Exactly when Samsung will roll the operating system update out remains to be seen. As close to a date as the source will offer is that Samsung hopes to roll the update out sometime during Q2 with Android 4.2.2 hoping to roll out in Q3.
The last time we talked about the Galaxy Tab 2 was back in late January when a new limited edition version of the tablet was launched. That limited edition version had the same hardware on the inside and was differentiated by a garnet red color. The tablet is priced at $219.99 and launched with Android 4.1 onboard. The tablet featured a dual-core processor, 32 GB of storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and more.[via Ubergizmo]
