Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) was officially announced on October 29, 2012.

(You can review the high level changes in Jelly Bean at the official Android Developer's site.)

Of course, not all devices will get this update right away and others won't get it at all. Each manufacturer and carrier often choose to add their custom modifications which tend to delay the official release.

When will each device get Android 4.2, either officially or unofficially, if ever?

  • Richard, I think we might be better served by incorporating 4.2 into the existing 4.1 post since they share the name, like we did with Honeycomb 3.0/3.1/3.2. What do you think? Commented Oct 29, 2012 at 20:04
  • @MatthewRead I think that sounds appropriate to me.

  • @MatthewRead: I'm somewhat inclined to disagree simply because of the sheer number of devices. With 3.x updates it was a fairly confined set of tablets that needed to be covered (since literally nothing else was going to get it). I could see it making sense to contain all of the info in one place, however, since it is still Jelly Bean and contains not-as-gigantic changes as a release with a new name usually does. If we do merge then I think we should have two answers: one for 4.1 and one for 4.2, and the question can link down to each of them to make it easier on readers. Commented Oct 29, 2012 at 21:14
  • ...so basically, either one seems like it makes sense. I think we either need to break the 4.1/4.2 stuff into two questions or two answers, but either one seems pretty reasonable. (/cc @BryanDenny) Commented Oct 29, 2012 at 21:15
  • @MatthewRead I agree with eldarerathis. 3.x updates concerned a limited number of devices compared to 4.2.
