While the update roll-out is still in the process, the company has released the Android 4.1 Kernel source code for developers. Samsung has rolled out the Android 4.1 update for the international version of Galaxy S2 earlier this year but haven’t made it available for Canadian and North American models. Like all other updates, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software update is also rolling out in phases and in a slow speed. The update is already available for the Galaxy S2 users in Korea and Spain.
The Korean company is still in the process of rolling out the Jelly Bean OTA update for it’s Galaxy S2 handsets worldwide. By far, only a handful of regions have received the Galaxy S2 Jelly Bean update. The Jelly Bean update is available for both SaskTel and Bell variants of Samsung Galaxy S2 in Canada.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is one of the major updates given to the Galaxy range of Android Smartphones by Samsung. The update includes some high-end features like Google Now and Project Butter. It also includes some bug fixes and performance enhancements. The update also includes the inspired by nature TouchWiz interface, which will make the interface of Galaxy S2 same as of Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3.
The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is not yet rolled out for the Galaxy S2 users in U.S. and seeing the history of updates in U.S carriers, this latest Jelly Bean update will take long to hit the Galaxy S2 Smartphones officially. All the major U.S carriers like Verizon, U.S Cellular, T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T host Galaxy S2 on their networks, but there is no word from any of them about bringing the 4.1 Jelly Bean update in the states.
