Samsung has finally started rolling out the Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) update for the Samsung Galaxy S2 users in India. The Galaxy S2 got the ICS update in India in May 2012, and the Jelly Bean started rolling out back in January starting from Spain. The Samsung Galaxy Note got the Jelly Bean update in India last month.
The Jelly Bean update would bring faster performance with project butter, new Nature UX similar to the Galaxy S3 , 2 Homescreen modes, Google Now service, contextual search, Better notifications, Direct Call, Smart Stay, Pop-up play, Video Hub and lots more features. Social Hub would be removed due to compatibility issues, says a notice before the update. You can download Polaris Office, Photo Editor and Video Maker separately from the Samsung Apps.
The Android 4.1.2 update for the Galaxy S2 is available OTA (Over the Air) and also via Samsung Kies. You can check for the update manually from the Settings, About, Software update. We didn’t get update over-the-air since it is rolled out in batches, but we updated our device through Samsung Kies successfully.
Samsung announced the list of devices that would get the Android Jelly Bean update back in back in September 2012.Hope Samsung rolls out the Android 4.1.2 update for the remaining devices in India soon.
