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!

  • 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.

    aadsfdThe 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.Already available as a download on SamMobile, install via Kies. Not only that, there are already ROMs based on this official release. I am currently using one.
    How is that for facts?

    my wife will be happy. She really likes the camera software, and video player upgrades. I recently showed an iphone owner a home video on my note 2. He thought that the thumbnail view with live thumbnails was too cool. Then he noticed that I had about 30 movies on there. He asked if it was a pain in the ass to get them on the phone. Drag and drop. and choose conversion or no conversion. If you convert it takes a while to upload to the phone. I take files from windows media center and drag them to my phone..... that's it. He told me he won't be getting another iphone.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (Wi-Fi Only) and received the update about a week or so ago. There are a few minor changes and an overall slightly faster feel.
