The first versions of the Samsung Galaxy S2 got their Android Jelly Bean updates a couple of months ago. Unfortunately for some users, not all the Galaxy S2 devices were updated and many owners are still waiting for that to happen. However, there is good new for the Three UK subscribers as the mobile operator has just started pushing the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for its version of Samsung Galaxy S2. The owners of the smartphone have been expecting the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for a while as the firmware upgrades have been released by other carriers a couple of weeks ago. Even though Three has delayed it Android Jelly Bean rollout, its customers will be happy to hear that the highly awaited updated will be finally received by their handsets.
Surely, the Galaxy S2 owners are tired of the old Android Ice Cream Sandwich as now they will have the possibility to enjoy all the cool features included in the Jelly Bean version of the operating system. Also, it’s always nice to see that, event though the past weeks have been filled with Samsung Galaxy S4 news, the older devices are receiving some attention, as well.
The news about the Samsung Galaxy S2 being updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been confirmed by Three UK on its official Twitter account. The software can be downloaded and installed through the Samsung Kies application. For the moment, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S2 is not available OTA, but this doesn’t mean that it won’t be in the following days.
As I said, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will enhance the device will a set of new features like Project Butter and Google Now, which allows the users to get useful information and perform various tasks via voice command. Also, the update will also bring the Smart Stay feature, which was firstly included by the Samsung Galaxy S3, and that uses motion tracking technology through the front-facing shooter of the device to analyze the eye movements of the user in order to establish if the smartphone is being used or not.
Of course, just like the other mobile operator, Three is rolling out the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update in phases, so in case you haven’t received it yet, just be patient, it will come.
