The Samsung Galaxy S2, is yet to receive its much awaited Android Jelly Bean update but Samsung Korea has already released some details on what the 2011 Android flagship is going to get from the upgrade.
Listed below are the major changes after the 4.1.2 Jelly Bean software upgrade.
1. Platform upgrade from Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
- improved Home screens and improved scrolling performance (thanks to Project Butter)
- Improved usability for some applications
2. Preloaded applications
- Add Help
- Add Google+
- Add +Talk
- Add Play Book
- Add Play Movie
3. Newly added/improved functions
- Add Easy mode, Block mode
- Improved Camera functions: function like Pause while recording and more
- Add Smart Stay
- New functions like Pop-up play and more
- Improved some functions & applications usability
The features mentioned above will surely put some smiles on the faces of Galaxy S2 owners. The downside though is that the update will reduce the device’s internal storage from 12GB to 11GB (probably for the 16GB version) and will consume more RAM due to a new system partition. But that’s a small price to pay, right?
Samsung didn’t give any details when they’re going to rollout the update but it’s going to be available via Kies (no OTA) once it arrives.
