Though we’ve never been under the impression that the almost two-year old Samsung Galaxy S2 would be first in line to get an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, we would have surely expected the once upon a time top-tier device to get the bump by now.
After all, it’s been six months since Google released JB to the Android Open Source Project, which is, like, six years in technology time. Then again, we’ve known for a while that the buttery new OS is going to hit the GS2 sooner or later, so it should come as no surprise that the software leap has been confirmed for February.
The info comes from a Sammy representative and is more or less rock solid, but unfortunately it’s only good news for folks over in Singapore at the moment. Then again, with Samsung Korea letting something similar slip a while back, we’re expecting the entire Asian continent to get the bump by the end of February. Europe, Australia and North America should then be next in line, only we’re unsure how far away it will be.
