If you’re one of those many customers who’ve bought a Samsung Galaxy S II, February is going to be an important month for you. Reportedly, that’s when the S II will start receiving its official update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
According to Cnet, a Samsung spokesperson declared that the smartphone would get Jelly Bean in early February in Singapore. This being said, we should expect the update to be released in other markets shortly after that.
Naturally, the update will be rolled-out not just to the i9100, but also to the other versions of the S II – including the ones available in the US, like the i777 (for AT&T) and the T989 (for T-Mobile).
Samsung has recently announced that it sold 40 million Galaxy S II handsets around the world since its launch (April 2011 – when the device was running Android 2.3 Gingerbread). The new Galaxy S III has been sold in more than 40 million units as well, but much faster – in only 7 months (since May 2012).
Last week, Samsung announced a smartphone that strongly resembles the old S II – called Samsung Galaxy S II Plus i9105, this runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, featuring a 4.3 inch WVGA display, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, and 8GB of internal memory.
