The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Android 4.1.2, JellyBean has begun rolling out.
The update first rolled out to users in Austria, according to a report from SamMobile. It should begin rolling out to more countries in the near future. The device was released with Android 3.2, bumped up to Android 4.0.4, and now will run Android 4.1.2, JellyBean.
The Galaxy S2 Android 4.1.2, JellyBean update is also now available in India.
Samsung started rolling it out over-the-air recently. If the smartphone did not receive an alert, users could check for it by using Samsung Kies software.
The Galaxy S2 received the ICS update in India in May 2012, and almost one year later the new build is available on the smartphone. Android 4.1.2 could be the last major update that the Galaxy S2 receives as it will most likely have a hard time running Android 5.0 when it launches later this year.
The Android 4.1, JellyBean update for the Epic 4G Touch, also known as the Samsung Galaxy S2 on Sprint, is now available for download.
The update can be accessed over-the-wire using Samsung's Simple Upgrade Tool.
JellyBean will bring many new features to the smartphone including enhanced graphic capabilities. Other new additions that come with the software include Smart Stay, which tracks eye movement to ensure the device screen is always on while viewed; Direct Call, which converts text message interface to the voice call interface by raising phone to the ear; Pop Up Play, which allows users to watch video content while operating any application at the same time; and different operation modes which allow users to modify the device functions to meet their always-changing needs.
