Samsung Galaxy S2 Gets Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Update On Sprint
The update comes nearly two months after Samsung first released the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S2. Sprint is now the first U.S. carrier to make the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update available for the Samsung Galaxy S2.
The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is available for over the air (OTA) update and the smartphones can be updated through Samsung Kies.
The update brings with it a variety of new features, along with improved battery life and better notifications. Project Butter allows for smooth performance overall. This should make moving between apps and home screens considerably easier. An improvement in touch responses lets you feel the pixels when moving your finger across the phone's screen. Touching the screen also boosts CPU, allowing for increased responsiveness.
Perhaps the most anticipated feature of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is Google Now. Google Now is a feature that tells users about traffic, weather and things like train times. Also included are some of the TouchWiz features we saw debut on the Galaxy S3. They include Direct Call, Smart Say, Pop-up-play or Lockscreen shortcuts.
Having launched in 2011, the Samsung Galaxy S2 remains a popular consumer device. AT&T owners on Alltel started getting the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update already and it was reported on March 31 that AT&T Galaxy S2 users are getting an Android update, though it is not Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
