Samsung Galaxy S2 getting Android Jelly Bean from February

Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S2 can look forward to a wholly ace software update to the Jelly Bean version of Android next month, the phone-maker has revealed.

A Samsung rep told CNET Asia that the upgrade will be landing in February in Singapore, ending what’s been a rather long wait for Jelly Bean to arrive on the two-years-old smartie.

It’s not yet clear when the European update will start. But judging by previous Samsung rollouts, we think it’ll be here within a few weeks of the Singapore due date.

When it does, it seems it will be available solely via Samsung’s proprietary download solution Kies and not as an over the air download and will eat into a large chunk of the phone’s memory to leave you with 11GB of storage rather than 12GB.

Still, it promises to be well worth it considering the sweet new features it’s going to bring a handset that is getting rather long in the tooth. Not least among them is the ace Smart Stay, which is perhaps best described as an intelligent sleep mode, and the option to expand notifications with a single finger scroll.
