samsung galaxy s2 pack shot

Samsung Galaxy S2 owners on Three can now update their phones to Android 4.1 (AKA Jelly Bean), bringing some sweet new features to the ageing handset.

A post on the @ThreeUK Twitter account confirmed the latest version of Android is available for the S2 via Samsung’s Kies download solution. It’s not clear if an over-the-air update will be available at a later date, but we’ve approached Three to find out.

The update bring with it the array of performance enhancements that go under the silky-sounding moniker Project Butter and the Google Now digital assistant in all its card-based, voice activated helpfulness.

Smart Stay, which debuted on the S3 and the then-nascent Nature UX user interface, is also coming to its predecessor.

This uses a phone's front-facing camera and motion tracking technology to detect owners eye movements and determine more accurately whether the handset is in use.
