The long wait has paid off! The official update to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 tablet is now in the pipeline as promised in January. The package with P6800DXMD3 initials was spotted by many users in Asian countries and is expected to arrive in the rest of the world soon, possibly as early as today itself.
The update brings plenty of new features and functionality for the 7.7-inch tab like Google Now to receive information on the weather forecast, results of sports matches, traffic directions, appointments and much more. Not to be forgotten, the technology called Butter Project that ensures an improvement in performance in navigating through the menus and screens. It also includes completely redesigned widgets, icons and notifications menu.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 was launched back in 2011 with Android 3.1 Honeycomb operating system. It seems the most long lived device is receiving upgrades to Ice Cream Sandwich and now, Jelly Bean in a row. The tablet comes with a 7.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels, 1.4 GHz Exynos 4210 dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory for saving files, dedicated slot to read MicroSD cards up to 32 GB, 3.2-megapixels rear camera, 2-megapixel front facing camera for video calls and 5,100 mAH gigantic battery. The device also features an integrated 4G-LTE module to surf the web at high speed.
You can update your Galaxy Tab 7.7 3G by using Samsung KIES or OTA services. However, there is no word when the users of another two versions (GT-P6810, and Verizon’s LTE-capable i815) of the tab will receive the update.
