The Jelly Bean update has finally arrived in India and now Samsung has started rolling out for the Galaxy S2 smartphone in the country.
The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update is available for Samsung Galaxy S2's Indian model GT-I9100. The smartphone was running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich so far and the Android 4.1.2 might be the end of Android update for Samsung Galaxy S2.
According to some reports, a number of Samsung smartphones and tablets will not be updated to Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, and Samsung Galaxy S2 is in the list of those devices not going to receive the update beyond Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S2 is available over the air (OTA) and if the update is not reaching your device over the air, you can download the firmware via Samsung Kies.
According to SamMobile, the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update brings some amazing features like.
- Buttery Smooth Performance & Great Stability (Thanks to Project Butter)
- Full User Interface Revamp (Same UI as of the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II)
- TouchWiz Nature UX
- Improved Camera features
- New Lockscreen With Many Customization Options
- New Features like Direct Call, Smart Stay and Pop-up Play
- New Widgets (From Galaxy S III)
- 2 Home screen modes
- New Notification bar With More Notification Toggles
- Google Now
The firmware update will change the user experience on the Samsung Galaxy S2 completely as it brings a completely new user interface. The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update didn't bring any change in the user interface to the Galaxy S2 devices and the smartphone was running on the user interface changes provided by Gingerbread update.
The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update will make the performance of Samsung Galaxy S2 so much like its successor Galaxy S3.
