The Galaxy Note II will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box, but Samsung is rumored to offer a Jelly Bean update soon after the smartphone’s release on the market.

This means that Galaxy S III will be the first Samsung device to receive the hotly anticipated Android 4.1 Jelly Beal update.

In the same piece of news, Samsung is also testing a Jelly Bean upgrade for Galaxy S II and the first results look pretty promising. If everything goes well, Samsung Galaxy S II owners might receive the update by the end of the year.

Samsung has yet to come forward with an official announcement that might confirm some of these rumors, so stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
