UK, International Galaxy S2 Users Get Jelly Bean Update

They say good things come to those who wait, and Galaxy S2 users have been waiting quite a while for Jelly Bean. However, the wait is officially over. Know Your Mobile reports that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has just started rolling out to unlocked Samsung Galaxy S2 handsets in the United Kingdom, Spain and China. The site says it received an email from one of its readers who received the update late Wednesday night.

News that Samsung planned to roll out Jelly Bean to the Galaxy S2 first hit four months ago, in September. The South Korean company revealed that it planned to bring the Jelly Bean goodness to the GS2 as well as the Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Tab 7 Plus, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, the Note 10.1, as well as a handful of other Galaxy devices. 

Hailed as the fastest and smoothest version of Android yet, Jelly Bean brings Google Now, Android Beam, Face Unlock, and improvements to the calendar, camera, gallery, web browser, messaging app, and keyboard, along with a host of other improvements. Have you gotten the update yet? Let us know in the comments below!

    i have the international uk gt-i9100, i see no update. :(

    i even downloaded kies onto my pc and plugged my phone in, it says i have the latest firmware.

    i am in canada but i ordered the unlocked uk international model because the gs2 took so long to hit american shores.

    The reports about the release of Jelly Bean for the UK International version have been proved to be incorrect. Many sites like this are reporting that its available without confirming the facts.
