    Samsung Korea posts Galaxy S II Jelly Bean update details


    Last updated: February 17th, 2013 at 12:52 UTC+01:00

    Samsung Korea posted Jelly Bean upgrade details about the Samsung Galaxy SII. The Jelly Bean update by Samsung will reduce internal memory from 12GB to 11GB and the reduced 1GB memory part will be used for system partition, as it will also re-partition the memory system, so this upgrade will take at least 1 hour. This upgrade will only be available through Samsung KIES.

    The Samsung Galaxy S II is Samsung's second best-selling Android device ever. Samsung introduced the Galaxy S II 2 years ago at MWC. The Galaxy S II features a 4.3” SuperAMOLED+ display, Exynos 4210 Dual-Core CPU clocked at 1.2GHz, Mali-400 Quad-Core GPU with 1GB of RAM and an 8 megapixel camera. This is not the first time the Galaxy S II is going to receive a major upgrade. Samsung updated their second best-selling Android device before from Gingerbread (Android 2.3.6) to Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.4). The Galaxy S II will now receive Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean upgrade.
