Canadian carrier Rogers promised their customers last month that they would roll out a new update for the Samsung Galaxy S2 LTE, update which was supposed to come with Android Jelly Bean. After the carrier delayed the rollout a couple of times, it seems that they kept their worr.
Actually, there have been reports saying that the firmware update has already started to reach its destinations, to the Galaxy S2 LTE owners. The carrier did not make any comment of made an official statement on its website, but some of the Samsung Galaxy S2 LTE users claim that the upgrade is already available and can be downloaded and installed using Samsung Kies. We don’t know for sure if the Android Jelly Bean update will be available via OTA, too.
However, you should not get overly excited as this release won’t boost you Galaxy S2 LTE to the latest version of Jelly Bean. After you install the update, your device will run Android 4.1.2, which is not so bad considering that the current Samsung flagship, the Galaxy S3, comes with the same version of the operating system.
If you have a contract with Rogers, make sure you go and update your handset, because even if isn’t the latest software, Jelly Bean is still better than the old Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
