T-Mobile Galaxy S2 users have always been a little disappointed with their update service, back in 2011 when the device was first launched by T-Mobile it was running Android 2.3 Gingerbread ! And if that wasn’t disappointing enough, it did not receive any update at all until last June when it was updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Since then there was no sign of any upcoming updates until today, also this will be the first time that T-Mobiles Samsung Galaxy S2 will go through a full make over as none of the previous updates changed the user interface. This new update will update the existing Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to Android version to 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. After you have installed the new update for you Samsung Galaxy S2, the user interface will be completely changed and will sport a look similar to the Samsung Galaxy S3’s user interface. Obviously this also means that the T-Mobile Galaxy S2 will finally experience Project Butter, which makes the overall experience of using the Android operating system much smoother and makes lag almost nonexistent. Not to mention that the Jelly Bean update will also offer multiple other tweaks such as Better Camera performance, longer battery life, improved lock screen functionality and improved notifications. Other features include Samsung’s very own Pop-up Play, Smart Stay along with two new home screen modes.
T-Mobile’s Galaxy S2 users will be receiving the 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update via OTA, the users must have good amount of charge and strong Wi-Fi signal as this update is fairly large and will take some to be installed. However if you don’t prefer the OTA method you can choose to download the update via Samsung KIES , though keep in mind that the update is not yet available for all locations and may take a few days to reach all T-Mobile users.
