Android Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S II detailed
Samsung has kept its promise from last year and has now revealed details regarding the Galaxy S II Android Jelly Bean update. In addition to the enhanced performance that Project Butter in Android Jelly Bean will provide, the update will also bring features from the Galaxy S III such as Smart Stay, Pop-up Play and Pause while recording video.
Some new applications will also come preinstalled such as Google+, Talk, Play Book and Play Movie (for the markets that support them). Easy mode for new users and Block mode for ignoring phone calls are also included.
The Galaxy S II Jelly Bean update will reduce the phone’s internal memory from 12GB to 11GB, using the missing space for system partition. Once released into the wild, the update will be carried out through Samsung’s KIES only, as it’ll re-partition the memory system and will take around one hour or even more in some cases.
With such details available we can only expect the update to get its release in the coming week or so. Naturally, we’ll let you know once it starts seeding.
