Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 owners can look forward to getting up to speed with Android Jelly Bean soon, reports suggest, after it emerged that the phone-maker has started work on test versions of the software.
According to sources cited by Sam Mobile, the phone, which shipped with the superannuated Gingerbread iteration of Android, will skip an update to the Ice Cream Sandwich version and will go straight to the newer Jelly Bean software.
The site, which has unearthed what it claims are snaps of the Ace 2 running an early Jelly Bean build, claims that the upgrade could be ready to roll out as early as March.
As well as all the headline features of Jelly Bean (think: the card-based voice activated digital assistant wondrousness of Google Now and the series of optimisations called Project Butter), the Ace 2 will apparently also get a taste of Samsung’s Nature UX interface.
First-sighted on the Galaxy S3, this offers nature-inspired interface options such as the Smart Stay intelligent sleep mode, which uses a phone’s front-facing camera to detect owners’ eye movements and more efficiently determine if the phone is in use.
