You might recall that we recently showed you a web page from Samsung Korea that revealed some information about the Android 4.1.2 update for the Samsung Galaxy S II. That information has since been taken down. But a Samsung spokesperson has told Cnet Asia that the Jelly Bean update is going to be available for the Samsung Galaxy S II starting next month when it will be debuted in Singapore. From there, the update should spread to the rest of the world.
The update will be available via Samsung Kies and not from an OTA update. It will reduce the amount of available internal memory from 12GB to 11GB on your phone, and will include some of the new features seen on the Samsung Galaxy S III like Smart Stay. You might remember that this allows your phone to stay on by using the front-facing camera to make sure you're not sleeping. Once the camera notices that you have given in to the Sandman, the display joins you and also goes to sleep.
If you speak Korean fluently and like to take risks, you can try to flash an unofficial version of Android 4.1.2 for the Galaxy S II from Hong Goon. Interested? Click on the sourcelink. Everyone else, just sit tight as it appears that Android 4.1.2 isn't too far from being available for your Samsung Galaxy S II.
