The Samsung Galaxy S2 was largely responsible for getting the manufacturer on its way to the dominance it now enjoys on the Android platform and beyond, and the company hasn’t forgotten about its once flagship device as the Galaxy S2 Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update has now reached users in India.
Samsung first started to push out the new firmware a couple of months ago and it has since been spreading around the globe and more recently touched down in the US on Sprint. Now though users in India are being treated to the nice new software on a handset that is still a worthy option for users on a tighter budget.
The update has been arriving via an over the air update but if you have yet to receive any prompt for its arrival you can either check for it manually on the handset, which is achieved via the settings and selecting the about device option, or by connecting the device to a PC and the Samsung KIES application.
If the update is ready for your example for the Galaxy S2 you will need to make sure you have plenty of battery life, and the new firmware will bring a number of neat new options to the device. This includes Google Now, quicker and more stable performance thanks to Project Butter, Direct Call, Nature UX that was first seen on the Galaxy S3, and much more.
This shouldn’t be the last Android update the device will see as it is expected to eventually see Jelly Bean 4.2.2 at some point in the future. Consumers in the country now have access to the newer version of the handset simply called the Galaxy S2 Plus, which is basically the same handset but with some slightly bumped specs.
