Samsung start making of Jelly Bean test firmwares for the Galaxy Ace 2

Samsung is going to update the Galaxy Ace 2 in the near future but when? Today SamMobile received a couple of screenshots of a pre-release firmware for the GT-I8160 Galaxy Ace 2. The Galaxy Ace 2 is a good selling mid-range Android smartphone by Samsung and is expected to get an Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update around March / April. We think it is good to see Samsung started the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for the Galaxy Ace 2. The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is not the only mid-range Android device to get Android 4.1.2. Earlier leaked out that Samsung will update the Galaxy Beam, Galaxy Music, Galaxy Chat, Galaxy Ace Plus and the Galaxy Mini 2 as well.  All android devices by Samsung will get the new TouchWiz Nature UX interface. Of course this will be a downgraded version of the Galaxy S III.

  61. Why can’t they bring the Jelly Bean to Samsung Galaxy S family phones (SGS Plus in example)? What’s so wrong with that? :(

  62. I hope to update galaxy mini 2 after galaxy Ace 2 :-(

  63. maybe next one is for ace plus….well only Sammy knows….sammy’ll update all those devices that they’ve told…..but they are taking too much time.

  64. Still waiting :
    At&t S2 skyrocket sgh- i727
    At&t S2 i777
    Note n700

  65. We have to wait the tests becouse i’m sure you don’t want to breake your phones if they are not good enough .i have a galaxy mini II but if isn’t strong enough i’ll prefer not to take the update

  70. süper süper !!!

  72. too slow sammy……..ace plus is waiting to welcome jelly bean……we know u r baking it…….ace+ is very hungry to taste it…….make it fast……

  73. ohh finally that’s great to see ace plus in the list… !
    cant wait for jellybean update on my ace plus :)

  74. flash_bboy, Jelly Bean (simplified version of it) will work just fine on Mini 2. Samsung releases new low-end phones with Jelly Bean, so there’s no reason for it not to work on Mini 2.

  75. when samsung is goin to release Jelly Bean for S Duos

  76. Please upgrade to the official version, 1GHz processor speed.

  77. This is good news if true, the trouble is the Google machine is about to replace 4.1.2. with 4.2. so now we will be back where we started, just a tad better off for our money , ’cause the Ace II is classed as a budget phone if we get this update that will be it !! as we are already seeing the previous model ace is stuck with gingerbread ….

  78. 3 ITA (Italian mobile network company) confirmed on Facebook that the update will be relased in early March and will be available through Samsung Kies.
    Could this be true? We’ll wait and see…

  79. What about our ace +?

  80. SGA – S5830?

    No ICS nor JB for Galaxy Ace S5830? Is this model stopped by Samsung?

  81. wat abt galaxy ace plus

  82. tired of waiting 4 ace plus

  83. date for galaxy ace plus ?

  84. i hate samsung
    too late

  85. Cyanogenmod released for ace plus. It is very good firmware in spite of some bugs. I mean Samsung should release 4.2 it is compatible with ace +

  86. now a hope from samsung of Jelly Bean for ACE PLUS had been given up…now samsung can release JB any time they want … cyanogenmod 10 has been ported by 2 persons … a very hats off to them that they just tried for us… So rather than wasting time on Sammobile Plz support this 2 guys as they are trying Hard to make Jelly Bean Port for our device….and A very Very Big Shame For Samsung’s JB Developers..

  87. When galaxy ace plus jelly bean update? I’ve been waiting for along time. Get this when I bought this phone the salesman said when I get home I can straight away update it to jelly bean but this wasn’t the case, very angry hurry up samsung

  88. any update about mini 2 ?????????????

  89. when we get jelly bean for galaxy mini 2 s6500
    please advise

  90. This is they ‘re ideea to make people visit the site.
    We see that samy is busy whit makeing gigantic phones that people will never buy becouse they are no such pockets large enough for the s4.make sure all your phones are the best not just the latest and f… the others.

  91. for galaxy mini 2 there is only cyanogenmod 10 and 10.1, but camera doesn’t work. Still waiting for official update.

  92. I wish this April, or this month will be the last month that I will wait for the update to my Ace Plus!

  93. Is it true that another firmware for the ace2 is to be relased by sammobile XXMD4??
