Curiously, many high end handsets are yet to get the latest Android version
Samsung is all set to roll out the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean version for its mid-range Galaxy Grand Duos, according to a report of SamMobile.
It is to be remembered that Android 4.2.2 is the latest version of Android operating system and many high end phones are yet to get the version.
Meanwhile, SamMobile has claimed to have received an official test ROM based on Android 4.2.2 for the Galaxy Grand Duos. Now if there is a test ROM, there will obviously be a final one which will be pushed as update. However, the report does not talk about any deadline.
The Android 4.2.2 update is also likely to be released for Galaxy S III, Note II and a couple of Samsung's tablets. Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos GT-I9082 features a 5 inch TFT LCD WVGA (480×800) resolution display, a 8 megapixel camera and a 1.2 GHz processor.
With the new update there will be new features like transparent notification bar, Smart Stay, Light effect by unlocking, Page Buddy and Day dream.
SamMobile says that the device itself feels pretty fast compared with Android 4.1.2 and the battery life seems to be improved. There is no new feature in the update for the camera though, the report further claimed.
Both the phones are completely different than previous Samsung smartphones with S6 Edge has a strikingly different curved display on two sides.
Samsung is expected to unveil the handset at the Unpacked event which starts from March 1.
The listing on Snapdeal doesn't speak anything about its LTE feature but many media reports claimed that the handset has 4G connectivity.
All these phones have 4G connectivity and are set to be launched in India in the second week of March.
