Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for Samsung Galaxy S Advance Now Rolling Out

Update Samsung Galaxy S Advance to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean

To be honest, Samsung Galaxy S Advance is a decent smartphone, a compact phone with 4-inch Super AMOLED display, dual-core 1 GHz processor, that leaves the factory gates pre-loaded with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. But Gingerbread looks old and laggy compared to the latest Android releases, therefore the South Korea-based company decided it’s time to roll out the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S Advance.

The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S Advance is starting to become available for download on the markets where the smartphone has debuted, and the Russia is the first in line.

Samsung previously said that Galaxy S Advance will be updated to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean in January, therefore, I am expecting to see the firmware update hit other countries, too.

Samsung Galaxy S Advance was available for purchase at various carriers, with a pretty low acquisition price, and this might be the reason for Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean hitting this particular smartphone. In case you didn’t notice, Samsung Galaxy S Advance jumps from Gingerbread 2.3 to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, skipping the Android 4.0.4 ICS stage.

The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S Advance is available for download via KIES, but it might also arrive OTA.

Let’s have a closer look at Samsung Galaxy S Advance’s technical specifications: 4-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, 233 ppi, and TouchWiz UI, a dual-core 1 GHz STE U8500 processor, helped by a Mali-400MP GPU, 768 MB of RAM, and 8 GB of internal storage and support for microSD cards of up to 32 GB.

In terms of connectivity Samsung Galaxy S Advance comes with 3G supports (download speeds of up to 14.4 Mbps),  Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot, bluetooth 3.0, microUSB, GPS, and 3.5 mm audio jack.

The primary camera is a 5 megapixel unit with autofocus, LED flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection, HD video recording support while the front-facing camera has a 1.3 megapixel sensor.

Samsung Galaxy S Advance is 9.7 mm thick, weighs in 120 grams, and is powered by a 1,500 mAh battery.
