Samsung Galaxy Beam getting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update soon?

Last year’s Samsung Galaxy Beam may get the Jelly Bean update soon, despite the fact that it still runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

The DLP projector-equipped smartphone has been unveiled during Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona though it never managed to attract a critical mass of users. It was cool, but then again – its specs were not on par with other high-end products that were announced at that time, leaving it to geeks with specific needs (who need to have a projector with them at all times).

As I said it, the Galaxy Beam didn’t even get the Ice Cream Sandwich update, hinting us Sammy had hard time moving a ton of these. Perhaps with Android 4.1 on board, the company could rejuvenate interest in this device. Perhaps not.

It is said that the new Jelly Bean-packing firmware is currently being tested and that it should be released by the end of July. Considering the phone is making such a major leap forward, it’s likely you’ll need to use Samsung Kies software to perform the update.

    Samsung would be better off to launch a projector case for Galaxy S4. That would be an interesting product…

    Have one and I’m completely satisfied with it!
    The projector has not only the function of beamer but can be used as a very bright torch … On top of this I bought it with an extension set with an extra battery and charging device. Empty battery can be exchanged immediately.
