There is some good news and bad news for Telstra customers. The Australian carrier has just updated its Android upgrade scheduler for this month and it looks like Galaxy S III owners are the only ones to like it.
Telstra has just announced Samsung delayed the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for Galaxy S II 4G once again. Apparently, Google did not agree with the work Samsung has put into this update and refused to certify it.
“The Android ICS 4.0 update for the Samsung Galaxy S2 4G has been delayed again by Samsung. The reason given was that the submission has failed Google certification. All dates are now ‘TBC’ for this update.”
Samsung Galaxy Nexus owners will be disappointed to learn Samsung delayed their Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update as well. Unfortunately, no explanations were given, but this is the second time the South Korean company postpones this update.
Next, HTC One XL and One S should have been upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean this month. While the timeframe still stands, there will be a slight delay.
“HTC have slightly delayed the submissions of the Android Jelly Bean 4.1 update for the HTC One XL and One S. We are still expecting them in November and aim to have them deploying to customers by the end of the year.”
Now, the good news is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S III will be approved ahead of schedule. Telstra is expected to approve the update on November 9 and will start the rollout within the next 10 days.
“The Samsung Galaxy S3 Android Jelly Bean 4.1 update looks like it will be approved ahead of schedule as it only required one round of testing. The Telstra approval is expected 9 November and it should commence deployments via Kies and FOTA within 10 business days of that approval.”
