Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for Samsung Galaxy S2 Now Rolling Out In South Korea

Update Samsung Galaxy S2 to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean

Last year, the South Korea-based company published a list of terminals that will receive the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update and Samsung Galaxy S2 was one of them. The guys at SamMobile report that the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S2 has new started to roll out in South Korea, the homeland of the Asian phone maker.

For the time being, there’s no word about the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update rolling out for other Samsung Galaxy S2 variants, but since Samsung has released the software update package in South Korea, I am sure that other important markets will soon receive the update, as well. We’ve told you a couple of weeks ago that the firmware update already hit Spain, and we will return with new details as Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for Samsung Galaxy S2 hits other countries.

Samsung Galaxy S2 was the best-selling Android-powered smartphone in 2011, released with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and subsequently received the Android 4.0 ICS update. The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S2 is by far the most major update the terminal receives since its debut. The new software update brings the TouchWiz Nature UX interface already available on the likes of Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2.

But there are may more interesting improvements besides the TouchWiz Nature UX. Android 4.1.2 comes with Project Butter for smooth performance and improved stability, Samsung’s storage in the cloud services, enhanced camera app, new lock screen and widgets, features like Direct Call, Smart Stay, Smart Alert, or Pop-up-play, a new improved notification area with customizable toggles, and the highly-appreciated Google Now.

Because the software package is quite big, the only way to update your Samsung Galaxy S2 to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean is via Samsung KIES.

Samsung Galaxy S2 was announced in February 2012 and comes with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with 480 x 800 pixels resolution, dual-core 1.2 GHz Exynos processor, with Mali-400MP GPU, and 1 GB of RAM. It has 16/32/64 GB of internal storage, expandable using mircroSD cards of up to 32 GB, WiFi in al standards, 3G, Bluetooth, microUSB 2.0, and a primary 8 megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash and full HD video recording support.

    Updated with Odin, works well and now it is also unbranded from 3 network – bonus.
    At first quite heavy on the battery but after a few tweaks it is better than it was on previous system.
