Surprises are almost always good, and Sprint has just made one for its subscribers. Without any previous notice, the carrier has just released the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for its Epic 4G Touch, Sprint’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S2. Of course, it’s not the latest iteration of Android OS, bit it will still come with major improvements and features like Project Butter, Google Now and enhanced notification system. The software update also comes with Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface.
Unfortunately, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Epic 4G Touch is not available over the air, and those of you who want to download and install the software upgrade will have to do it through Samsung Kies. It seems that the downloadable content is just too big to be pushed OTA, at least according to Sprint. If you ask me, I think that the carrier doesn’t want to bother with rolling out the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update over the air for the Epic 4G Touch because the phone was launched two years ago and it doesn’t seem to be a priority. Nevertheless, the users should consider themselves lucky to receive the update in the first place.
The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update van be downloaded and installed right away as some Epic 4G Touch owners claim that they’ve already done it. In case you want for details about the matter, you can check out the Sprint support site HERE.
