Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 Android Jelly Bean update starts rolling out in Europe
Samsung has long ago promised to update its 2012 mid-rangers to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, completely overhauling the experience, and the Galaxy Ace 2 GT-I8160P is the first handset to start getting updated.

Samsung’s new nature inspired TouchWiz is on top of Android, and you get all the benefits of Project Butter with its triple buffering and eliminated lag.

Right now that update is only available in Europe and Germany in particular but it should soon start arriving to other markets. It’s an over the air update and a notification should pop up on your device telling you when you can start it. Take into account that this is for the GT-I8160P model only.

Here are the details about this firmware version:

Android Version: 4.1.2
Build Date: May 1

source: SamMobile

Title is misleading, should be 'Galaxy Ace 2 NFC-only version GT-I8160P', the general non-NFC hasn't yet received any official non-carrier JB firmware.
