Samsung Galaxy S2 getting Jelly Bean in February


According to a new report, the Samsung Galaxy S2’s long-awaited update to Jelly Bean will kick off next month in Singapore. Initially, all signs pointed to Samsung delivering Android 4.1 by the end of 2012, but as the final days of the year waned the launch was delayed until early 2013.

After starting in Singapore for the GT-i9100 variant of the phone, the software upgrade will spread to Galaxy S2 handsets in other regions. For US Galaxy S2 owners, the wait could be considerably longer. American carriers are notorious for releasing updates long after similar software is available for the international version of a device. We can only hope the wait isn’t too excruciating.

When the time comes, Android 4.1.2 will be available via the Samsung Kies PC software. It will not be pushed over the air.

  1. When is my HTC Hero getting Jelly Bean?

    1. Never! Hahahahaha

  2. lol HTC Hero

  3. Yeah right. The S2 isn’t going to see JB, at least in North America. For one, the are way too many variants of this phone. Secondly, carriers won’t pass this on to customers.

    You want updates? Get a Nexus. I’ve learned that lesson.

    1. Apparently you don’t know what xda is lol! Already been running Sprint’s version. Lol

      1. Sure, but that’s not an excuse for them not to push the update.

    2. Or just get an international version of whatever you want. Samsung is the best for updates now.

  4. I’m going to laugh with hatred if at&t released the jb for the S2 before the One X.
