It seems that Samsung is aggressively rolling out Jelly Bean update for its handsets in India. It was just last week when Samsung Galaxy S Advance received Jelly Bean update and now Samsung Galaxy Chat smartphone. It’s about time Samsung rolling out Jelly Bean update in the country, before it other domestic manufacturers had already rolled out the same. However, if you are one of the users of Samsung Galaxy Chat (Model No GT-B5330) handset, then you should probably be receiving the update over-the-air (OTA) before long.
The update was first hit the country Spain and now it has finally reached in India. The size of the update is about 322 MB and Samsung is rolling it out in phases. So it could take time to reach your region. Once it reaches there, a notification on your smartphone will popup, make sure you’ve enabled internet access. After getting the notification you’ll just have to download and install the updates.
You can also manually check for the update by just opening the ‘Settings’ > ‘About Phone’ > ‘Software Update’ > ‘Update’ options. You can also connect your smartphone with your PC and get a hold of the update via Samsung Kies app. If you already have the app on your PC you can easily update your smartphone. But if you don’t want to take risk then we’d suggest you to wait for the OTA update, it will eventually hit your region.
The update brings Jelly Bean OS (Software build number B5330XXUBMD2) to your smartphone that consists of several features including Google Now integration, enhancements to user interface, notification and Project Butter and much more. Just for the record, it’s the Jelly Bean v4.1.2 Jelly Bean not v4.2. But don’t be disappointed, there’s not much difference between these two.
And as for the smartphone Samsung Galaxy Chat (Model No GT-B5330), it was originally announced in July last year and was running on ICS OS. However, it took two months to reach India. It boasts a 3 inch capacitive display screen with resolution of 240×320 pixels. It is a full QWERTY handset and comprises an 850 MHz processor equipped with 512 MB RAM. It has a 2 MP rear camera, 4 GB onboard memory and up to 32 GB microSD expandable memory. It is powered by a 1200 mAh battery and has usual connectivity features. The device is just 11.7 mm thick and weighs around 112 grams.
