The news about Samsung Galaxy S II (GT-I9100) smartphone getting the latest Android 4.1 operating system also known as Jelly Bean update is becoming clearer and nearer. After so many months of waiting it looks like I will finally get this update on my smartphone as well to enjoy that seamless and responsive Android operating system. I have been monitoring the progress of this update since the time it was reported that Google and Samsung have been testing the latest update on most of the 2011-2012 Samsung smartphones. Currently, my Samsung Galaxy S II is still enjoying its Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich update which have been there for so many months. There have been some bugs that I found like crashing and freezing apps, and the worst of it is the native browser is no longer working after I updated it from Gingerbread. I eventually downloaded the latest Google Chrome and made it my default smartphone browser. There hasn’t been any updates nor bug fixes after that update so I am waiting for the next Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update to see how my Samsung Galaxy S II will go along with the new system.
Anyways going back to the topic about that new upcoming Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S II (GT-I9100), it was reported late this week that the new update will be coming to us sometime between this September – October. Last month, I featured a report that Samsung was already testing the latest Android 4.1 with code-named Project Butter on Samsung Galaxy S II. And from that report, it shows a very promising public release for the aforementioned smartphone.
SamMobile, confirmed that there will be an update coming for the popular Android smartphone, Samsung Galaxy S II, as the company have been very busy testing the Jelly Bean update on this smartphone. According to their insiders, Samsung’s tests is doing well and they are preparing in making a public version but it will be available only through KIES. If all the tests and results goes well as planned, then the update will start to roll-out sometime between September – October. So that’s just a few days from now.
Until then, I will start cleaning up my Samsung Galaxy S II now so that it will be fully prepared when the update comes. Creating back-ups of course.
