Samsung has been really busy lately, not only with the launch of the Galaxy S4 and other mid-range smartphones, but only with preparing the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for its older Galaxy S2. Such a software update takes time because the device has sold by many carriers, each of them offering a different version.
The good news is that Samsung is taking care of the problem and after readying updates for some of the Galaxy S2 variants such as the GT-I9100P, the Indian variant and the Three UK Galaxy S2, now its time for the T-Mobile model to receive the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update.
T-Mobile’s version of Galaxy S2 has the model number SGH-T989 is it’s different from the standard model sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 dual-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz. The smartphone also includes 1 GB of RAM, and a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED display with a pixel resolution of 800 x 480.
When the T-Mobile version of the Samsung Galaxy S2 was launched, it was running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The device was updated in June 2012 to Android 4.0 Ice Cream sandwich. However, with the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update, the users of the Galaxy S2 will get a new user interface, which can be found on the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy S3, along with brand new features like Project Butter, Google Now, Pop-up Play, Smart Stay, Direct Call and improved notification system.
Of course, you are probably eager to download and install the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update on your Samsung Galaxy S2, but you have to be a little patient as the software updates are usually pushed in phases, which means that if you will not receive the notification today, you will probably get it tomorrow or the day after.
The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update is available though Samsung Kies, as well as over the air. Before beginning the download process make sure your smartphone is at least half charged. Also, you may want to find a good Wi-Fi connection for a smooth download. Let us know if any of you have received the update.
