Samsung Galaxy S II i9100P and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus getting Android Jelly Bean updates now
Two of Samsung’s Android devices that were introduced back in 2011 are being updated to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean as of now. They are the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus P6200 (which ran 3.2 Honeycomb at launch) and the Galaxy S II i9100P (originally running 2.3.4 Gingerbread).
Sam Mobile says the update for the Galaxy S II i9100P is available both over the air, and through Samsung Kies. As almost always, the new software roll-out is being done in phases, so not everyone will get it right away.
In case you’re wondering, the Galaxy S II i9100P comes with an NFC chip, unlike the regular S II i9100. And speaking of the i9100, Jelly Bean updates for it have started in January.
As for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus P6200 (pictured above), it looks like Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for it is currently available only in Austria. But more countries should follow shortly.
Since they’re dual-core devices, the Samsung Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will most probably not be updated beyond Android 4.2.2.
Although both are pretty old, the S II and Tab 7.0 Plus are still available for purchase. In Europe, for example, the Galaxy S II can be bought for around €290, while the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus costs about €260.
