Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note coming in March, says Samsung Ukraine

by: Brad WardFebruary 1, 2013


Good news, Ukrainian Android users, Samsung will be updating the Samsung Galaxy S2, Note and Ace 2 to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean soon!

According to Samsung Ukraine’s own website, the Galaxy S2 will be receiving the update sometime in March alongside the Galaxy Note. The Galaxy Ace 2 will be receiving the same update a month later, in April while the Galaxy S Advance will also be getting it on Feb. 18.

Additionally, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will be upgraded to Android 4.1.2 on Feb. 22. Other countries will no doubt receive the update sooner, but it is at the very least nice to have an update window to look forward to.

In case the Galaxy S2 is too “old” for you even with Jelly Bean on board, we’ll remind you that the Galaxy S2 Plus‘s launch date was announced earlier this month. The handset will run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean on the device out of the box and it will come with a Broadcom chipset with a dual-core Cortex A9 CPU set at 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM on board. Other specs on this S2 flavor include a 8-megapixel rear shooter with 1080p video recording and a 2-megapixel front facing shooter. Lastly, the S2 Plus comes with a microSD slot and 8GB of internal storage.

Let’s hear it from Galaxy S2 owners, are you looking forward to Jelly Bean?

    I have a Galaxy Note N7000 and I have put an NonOfficial jelly Bean 4.1.2 to my samsung from November 2012. And of course when we received the official Jelly Bean 4.1.2 , then I put an NonOfficial 5.0 key lime pie.

  • Waiting….

  • this is bullsh*t, when i purchased my sgh i717 from att it was running 2.36, and let me tell you it wasnt pretty. i had perviously owned a sgh i727 skyrocket which i rooted and put 4.04 ics leaked rom on and it was solid fast and stable. the fragmentation of the android OS is the only major problem i see with this platform. there needs to be a general update not by the carrier but by the device manifacture. att and all other major carriers shouldnt be dictating the software advancement, shit they should be greatful that they get to put bloatwear on the phone to begin with. this needs to end. it should be like anyother software update if your machine ( or device in this case) can run it it should get the update but if your hardware cant handle it u need to upgrade.

    still waiting for At&t Galaxy Note Jellybean update -_-
    I might as well get a new smartphone if I am going to have to wait this long. My Note is starting to act up and is getting really sluggish. Im using Nova Launcher but it keeps crashing.

    Wow, it’s been more than a week since Spain got 4.1.2 and since then only China received the update as well, we’re 7 days without updates for SII (I mean region/carrier) God damn Samsung, what’s wrong with updating it all at the same time? I have the User Guide for 4.1 here in Brazil, what the heck is wrong with having it updated? I’m 1 step away from ROMs (that will take me to 4.2 and in the future 5.0!) so I can be free of your services. I’m really sorry if I said anything that would sound wrong if someone were to read this, but it gets me every single day.

    Well I can’t wait for Jelly Bean on my Epic 4G Touch (Sprint)! I have been waiting for the official OTA update, mostly since I haven’t found a foolproof way to root my device since the ICS update. But I’m psyched! My device needs to be modernized with the newest OS, since I can’t update my phone until January, and by then they’ll be on 5.1 or something like that! It’s quite amazing how in the one year since I got my phone, Android has gone from 2.1.6 all the way to 4.1.2, and soon 4.2.2 and 5.0! It’s amazing, the growth and development of the Android OS!
