When people are talking about Samsung's upcoming smartphone Galaxy S4, Samsung's other devices under the Galaxy series -- Galaxy S3 and S2 are busy getting Android Jelly Bean updates.
Samsung Galaxy S3 recently got the Jelly Bean update, and now it is turn for the Galaxy S2 devices.
Samsung has started rolling out the firmware update in many parts of the world, especially Europe. The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update is available over the air (OTA) in many parts of the European Union countries.
The Jelly Bean update is being rolled out by the Vodafone UK to its Samsung Galaxy S2 customers officially.
The update is said to be enhancing the smartphone's performance, giving it better notifications and improving the battery life.
Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update brings 'Google Now' on Galaxy S2 devices.
Google Now tells you about the weather, traffic of your city and other things like your train timings or live scores. Apart from Google Now, the firmware update also improves the user interface (UI) of the devices with the help of smooth Project Butter. The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update also allows the Samsung Galaxy S2 users to taste some of the TouchWiz features that debuted on the Samsung Galaxy S3, like Smart Stay, Direct Call, Pop-up-play, or Lockscreen shortcuts.
The update has already reached the Galaxy S2 devices in Canada, and users seem to be really happy with the performance of the device after the update.
"I'm in Canada and just got the update last week. The animations are definitely much brighter and smoother. I also have noticed longer battery life," a Galaxy S2 user from Canada said.
The Galaxy S2 comes with a 4.3-inch SUPER AMOLED Plus display and a dual-core Application processor. The smartphone is said to be the device which really gave a boost to Samsung's dreams of making a presence in the global samrtphone market.
