Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Gets Leaked Official Jelly Bean Update
We frequently bring you news about devices receiving unofficial updates to Jelly Bean. It is happy news, as it means the devs here at XDA are hard at work to bring the latest version of Android to the masses. That said, it’s always nice when OEMs release official Android version updates. Even if it has to be distributed by someone other than the OEM.
