The Samsung Galaxy S2 owners were expecting the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update to drop sometime in November 2012, but after a delay, the South Korea-based phone maker is apparently ready to roll out the software update for SGS2. Just when we thought that Samsung has forgotten about the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S2, the Asians posted today the software upgrade features on its official website.
The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S2 announcement specifies that you will need Kies in order to be able to upgrade your device and that the structure of the internal memory will change. Therefore the storage will shrink from 12 GB to 11 GB, with 1 GB now occupied by the new system files.
Moreover, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S2 will come with performance improvements, the impressive Google Now, and other goodies like Smart Stay, Multi View, Easy mode and Blocking Mode.
It seems tough that, for the time being, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean firmware update is only available for the South Korea varaint of the terminal, and that it hasn’t rolled out OTA, yet.
You should keep in mind that the web post was made by Samsung South Korea, therefore the announcement it’s only available on the local market.
I am eager to see how Multi View will look and run on Samsung Galaxy S2 and what exactly “performance improvements” mean. I guess that the Samsung Galaxy S2 owners in other areas than South Korea will still have to wait a couple of weeks until the software update hits their devices.
