Samsung fans in India will be delighted to learn that the Korean company has finally started rolling out the much-awaited Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for its Galaxy S2 users in the region.
The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update was pushed out by Samsung in phases earlier in February, beginning with Spain. Galaxy S2 users in Canada, South Korea and most European countries have already received the software update.

The two-year old Galaxy S2 got the update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in May 2012, but has had to wait nearly a year before being updated to Jelly Bean.
The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S2 is now being pushed out over-the-air (OTA) and is also available for manual download via Samsung Kies software.
Some of the enhancements and new features the update brings are:

Per reports, the Galaxy S2 is also expected to get a bump to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean in the long term, which will be the last one for the device.
