Due to adjustment problems with TouchWiz, the Galaxy S2 might not get the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OTA update, although the device was on the list of handsets to get the update for quite some time. The smartphone was released more than two years ago and it received two updates in that time, but users were still really excited about getting the 4.2.2 Jelly Bean firmware. Even more disappointing news say that the device might be stuck with Android 4.1.2 forever. It’s not the end of the world, as the difference between the two isn’t huge, but owners of the Galaxy S2 were expecting the new OTA, so finding out it isn’t coming anymore won’t be good.
Also, as our source points out, we must consider the possibility that the Galaxy Note might not get the update either, as it carries the same hardware as the S2. The Galaxy S2 was released April 2011 and has the dimensions of 125.3 x 66.1 x 8.5 mm. It comes in two versions, 16/32 GB storage with 1 GB RAM, expandable via MicroSD up to 32GB. The device features a 4.3 inch display with Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen and Corning Gorilla Glass protection, and runs on an Exynos Dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9 processor. It also has two cameras – an 8MP one and a 2MP front-facing one.
The device features a Li-Ion 1650 mAh battery and comes in black, white and pink color schemes. It doesn’t support LTE. We do, however, have information that the new Galaxy S 2 Plus will be getting Android 4.2.2.
We believe we didn’t give you any good news, but look at it this way: Samsung is continuously releasing new devices, and if you want to work on the latest Android, maybe one of them will fit your needs and budget. Just keep following our posts to find out the newest on the market.
