OMG! Actually, Yes! The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (GT-P3100) receives an early update jump to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Heck, I don’t know if the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 owners should be happy about this. But that’s it, Samsung has officially rolled out the 4.2.2 update on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, which is now the second slate ahead from others together with the Samsung Galaxy S2 plus (GT-i9105) that also receives an early 4.2.2 update yesterday. So, before everyone else complain about this, let’s all give a round of applause to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 owners which originally runs with 4.0.4 firmware, if you owned one, then you should be laughing by now, probably.
Wait, it’s only available in France for this time being, and might gradually arrives in other parts of Europe regions soon. Those who might want to get a sneak peek about how this 4.2.2 may looks like, you can grab the stock firmware below. We don’t know exactly how the whole changes this 4.2.2 update may brings, but some said that it has some new re-designed lockscreen widgets, camera enhancements and like wise the battery life has also improved. Well, just check it by yourself, and see how this 4.2.2 performs in your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (GT-P3100).
