If you are a proud owner of Samsung Galaxy S2, you may be contented with the amazing features and apps of the Android 4.0 mobile operating system. This mobile OS has offers you access to thousands of cool apps among other things. If you thought that Android 4.0 is the ultimate mobile OS, think again. According to the latest reports, Samsung’s Jelly Bean 4.1.1 update is underway. This OS will replace the current Android 4.0 in various Samsung devices. In fact, Samsung has already conducted the first tests for this OS, which went very well according from sources inside the company.
You are probably wondering when this new OS will be available on the market. If everything goes according to plan, Samsung will release the Jelly Bean 4.1.1 in the month of September and not later than October. There are already leaks of this new upgrade available online, and those who cannot wait for the official release are installing it to their devices. Nevertheless, Samsung is urging its customers to be a little patient and wait for the legit upgrade. This is not just a marketing strategy for the company but there are sound reasons you should wait for just a while.
For instance, the leaked version only installs on devices that are unlocked. If you try installing on locked devices, you risk damaging them for good. If you think you can just unlock your device and then install the leaked upgrade, then sorry to bust your bubble, it is not that simple.
Unlocking your phone is a tricky and risky process that will cost you a considerable amount of dollars since you have to pay a professional. Ask yourself, is it really worth it? One great advantage of the scheduled OS upgrade is that it will be designed not only for Galaxy S2 and Galaxy S3 but also for Galaxy Note. So if you own this gadget, don’t feel left out. Nevertheless, the priority will be given to the Galaxy S2 and Galaxy S3 first. Samsung will certainly release this new OS along with other new apps.
When the Galaxy S3 was launched, a timing problem existed. The device appeared at the same time Google were launching Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, while it was running on Ice Cream Sandwich. So Samsung had to act first to offer their customers a new upgrade. The plans are almost complete and you will soon have the upgrade on your hands!
