Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Update for Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100M Rolling Out In Canada

The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100M has started to roll out in Canada. The Samsung Galaxy S2 was the best-selling smartphone of the South Korea-based company in 2011, so the last gen flagship will get the company’s support when it comes to new Android versions.

As usual, the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S2 is rolling out in phases, so you might not be able to update your smartphone to the new firmware version right away.

As you probably know, the Galaxy S2 was launched running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but the guys at Samsung have released the Android 4.0 ICS update. Unfortunately, the Ice Cream Sandwich update hasn’t brought any major updates in terms of user interface, but once you update the Samsung Galaxy S2 to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean the improvements at the user interface level will be striking. The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S2 brings Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz Nature UX interface, packing most of the features that are already available on the company’s high-end smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S3 or Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

But the new software update for the Galaxy S2 will also bring the other Android 4.1 Jelly Bean-specific treats: better stability and smooth performance, courtesy of Project Butter, a new, customizable lock screen, improved notification bar with customizable toggles, and the highly-appreciated Google Now.

Courtesy of the Nature UX and Samsung’s proprietary apps, you will have access to the company’s S Cloud services, two Homescreen modes, new widgets, better camera app, improved with new features, and the popular motion controls like Direct Call, Smart Stay, or Pop-up-Play.

The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S2 can be performed both OTA and via KIES. Because the update package size is quite big, we’d recommend you to connect to a WiFi hotspot if you choose the first option.

In case you forgot, the Samsung Galaxy S2 comes with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, 1.2 GHz Exynos processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 16/32/64 GB of internal storage, expandable using a microSD card. The smartphone also brings an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash and full HD video recording support.
