The unknown device namely Galaxy Music will also gets this update. Jellybean is not as major an update as Icecream Sandwich was and is probably the reason for so many devices to be getting the update.
Poland is the first market to receive the update, which brings Google Now, Project Butter and other enhancements, but Samsung says Jelly Bean will gradually be introduced to other markets soon.
This update further brings a few Samsung-specific enhancements, including improved ‘Pop up play’ functionality, a new ‘Easy mode’ that offers easy-to-use widgets for favorites and recently-used applications, and a ‘blocking mode’ that sounds remarkably similar to Apple’s “Do not Distrub” function.
Samsung has not given any time frame for when these devices will get the update, it may vary depending on your location and wireless carrier.
