After introducing Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S2 (SHW-M250K ) in Korea, Samsung has begun rolling out the update to the Galaxy S2 (GT-I9100G).
In its constant drive to provide the best android experience to its users, Samsung keeps updating the Galaxy S2 with all the new Android versions. According to Sam Mobile, the update is being rolled out in phases. As a result, you may not be able to upgrade your Samsung device to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean right away. It's advised you wait as the update will soon arrive your country or network provider.
"In the history of software updates, the new Jelly Bean update by Samsung to the Galaxy S2 is by far the most major update given to a smartphone yet," the report said. Samsung's Ice Cream Sandwich update came with no UI changes from its Gingerbread update. However, with Samsung's Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update, Galaxy S2 will get a new life as it gets the new Nature UX Interface. The new Nature UX Interface is the same one that reached the Galaxy S3 Mini and the Galaxy S 3 with their latest Jelly Bean update.
