Samsung Galaxy S2 Android 4.1, JellyBean Update Coming Next Month

The Samsung Galaxy S2 Android 4.1, JellyBean update will be released next month.

A Samsung spokesperson told CNET Asia that the Android 4.1, JellyBean updates will start rolling out to current Galaxy S2 owners in the beginning of February in Singapore.

Samsung Korea also posted details about the JellyBean upgrade for the Galaxy S2. According to the company, the update will reduce the internal memory from 12GB to 11GB and the reduced 1GB memory part will be used for system partition. Since the upgrade will re-partition the system, it will take about an hour to install.

It will also only be available through Samsung KIES desktop software.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Android 4.1.1, JellyBean update is now available in the U.S. with the update being released for both the 7-inch and 10.1-inch models.

It has been made available over-the-air, and improves the overall performance of the tablet as well as bringing new features such as expandable and actionable notifications, resizable widgets, Google Now, and other enhancements.

Users of the Galaxy Tab 2 in the U.S. can either wait for the update to show up on their device or check for it manually. In order to find it manually users must visit Settings>About Device>Software update. This should bring it up and they can begin downloading and installing once it is found.

The update began rolling out for the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and 10.1 in other parts of the world during November but the U.S. release has been held back until now, with the United States release only beginning from Jan. 11. However, that update was just available for the Wi-Fi only version of the two tablets. From today it appears to be available for all versions.
