Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 and S Advance going to skip Ice Cream Sandwich and will get Jelly Bean

There is some great news for those having a Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy S Advance.
Apparently the two mid-range smartphones will be getting the official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update without being updated to  Ice Cream Sandwich before.

One of the  Bulgarian readers from GSM Arena contacted its local Samsung branch, asking if the two smartphones will be updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The response was kinda suprising that the Galaxy Ace 2 and the Galaxy S Advance will be skipping  Ice Cream Sandwich and will be updated directly to the Jelly Bean.

This all can be not true as the Samsung Facebook Pages were wrong in the past. So for now I would take this with a pinch of salt!

It will probably take a few more months for the update to be ready, as you all know Samsung takes their time to update their phones.
So Samsung where is the word on the Galaxy S II ??????

@jortlaban WOW ,What do you ThinK???
You’re Think is Not Fair
It’s too SO Far
You Must Look
-W98= Cupcake
-Vista= ICS
-W7 = JB
Vista&W7 It’s Minor Change Because it’s Change Database& Tweeks Rom To Speed.

@Sam10102539: your right about that, but why people want 4.1.1 for Galaxy Ace is beyond my mind. the device runs on 2.3.6 not on ICS.

and Vista??? a more accurate comparisson would be having Win98 and wanting windows 7 without updating your hardware.

@jortlaban If you Run Vista Fully For PC ,Your PC IS Ready For W7

If You Run ANDROID4.0 On Your Phone ,Your Phone must READY FOR ANDROID4.1
BECAUSE IT IS MINOR CHANGE!!!

S2 Will get JB. I can’t believe how many crybabies there are here. And if you want to upgrade an old Phone, switch to CM. You can’t run Windows7 on an old PC, are you gonna whine about that too.
