Samsung Galaxy S II Gets The Android 4.1.2 Update In India

Samsung Galaxy S II needs no introduction! It is the successor of the popular Galaxy S smartphone. The Korean mobile phone manufacturer has already managed to sell more than 20 million units of this device globally. Samsung Galaxy S II was originally shipped with the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) Operating System. Last year, Samsung Galaxy S II users have also received the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) update.

Earlier this year, Samsung started rolling out the newer Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) update for this device in Europe. After waiting for nearly 3 months, Indian Galaxy S II users can finally taste the Jelly Bean. This update brings the usual Android 4.1 goodies along with the Touchwiz Nature UX, which was previously seen in the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II. Check out the changelog below.
