Samsung has pulled an HTC by canceling its promised and much-awaited Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update. Samsung has so far abided by its promises of timely updates. However, this time, the company’s software reputation is up for stake.
However, this is the not the first time that Android updates have been delayed or canceled but Samsung has the strongest reputation when it comes to offering timely updates. By canceling the promised Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy Mini 2, it has failed to meet the expectation of its users.
It is worthy to note that Samsung was the first ever company to come up with the update of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and deliver the update of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with Galaxy S4. Now, in this instance, the company has canceled the scheduled update for its mid-range Samsung Galaxy Mini 2.
While HTC’s software reputation is up for debate thanks to several blunders in the past, Samsung’s has remained relatively good due to timely updates and promises that have been fulfilled. Though, it appears that Samsung may have taken a page out of HTC’s update book and canceled the promised Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update.
A tweet from Samsung Spain tells us that the company had to cancel its update for the flagship offering due to overall user experience. The device in the conversation is Samsung Galaxy Mini 2, which comes across as affordable smartphone with low-end hardware specs. It is being suggested that company might have some problem with regional wings of the company but seems like the update is in serious trouble and won’t roll out anytime soon.
Being a company with good reputation, it is possible that Samsung might release the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update outside Spain. Meanwhile, we can hope that the delay in update is just this time and does not become a trend.
