Adam Parnala | On 05, Jan 2013
Samsung Galaxy S2′s Jelly Bean update was first predicted to roll out in late 2012 but that didn’t happened. But the good news is, it looks like it will soon reach Galaxy S2 owners as some of the details regarding this update was already revealed by Samsung Korea.
While the details below reveal the information on the much anticipated upgrade, Samsung didn’t indicate the specific date of the roll out.
The Samsung Galaxy S2‘s Jelly Bean update will be available via Kies and the entire process will take an hour or two depending on the speed of the internet connection. If your internal storage is clogged, make sure to remove some files first as the update will consume an extra 1GB that will be used for system partition.
We’ll report again once we got some information of its official roll out. In the meantime, you can check out the details of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update below. [Translated by Sam Mobile]
