A couple of days ago we’ve told you that the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S2 is rolling out at T-Mobile and we knew that AT&T’s Skyrocket should be updated soon after.

The Samsung Galaxy S2 came pre-loaded with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and received the Android 4.0 last year, but the Ice Cream Sandwich update didn’t bring any major changes in terms of user interface.

Besides the Jelly Bean-specific goodies like Project Butter, expandable notifications, or the highly appreciated Google Now, the Android 4.1.2 update for Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket will also bring other goodies like S Voice, S Planner, S Memo, and some of the Galaxy S3-specific features like Direct Call or Shake to Update. Since we are talking about a firmware update released by AT&T, the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket will also remove the Qik and MSpot and it will come with bug fixes, performance improvements, and better call quality.
