Samsung Galaxy S II, the 4.3-inch flagship launched by Samsung back in 2011, is getting its taste of Jelly Bean. Galaxy S II is the best-selling Android device of 2011 and has a very large user base that’s why Samsung keeps on updating this device with all the new Android versions as they want to provide the Galaxy S II users with their best support experience.
The update has started arriving to the GT-I9100P model of the Galaxy S II, based on the Samsung Exynos 4210. Earlier, in March, Samsung started updating the GT-I9100G version of the S II, the one with a Texas Instruments chip. In the history of software updates, the new Jelly Bean update by Samsung to the Galaxy S II is by far the most major update given to a smartphone yet. Keep in mind that Galaxy S II launched with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and now it will be getting the same OS as the Galaxy S III.
