You might be pissed at first when you hear that Samsung extremely affordable mid-ranger the Galaxy Ace 2
is not getting updated to Ice Cream Sandwich, but wait until you hear the whole story. Instead of getting bumped up to Android 4.0 ICS, the second-generation Galaxy Ace will surprisingly get an update directly to 4.1 Jelly Bean
, according to a representative of Samsung Bulgaria.
“Hi, Georgi! There won’t be development of an Ice Cream Sandwich update for model I8160 (GALAXY Ace 2). Instead, the device will get an update directly to the next version - Jelly Bean. At this moment, sadly, we can’t tell you exactly when to expect it. We’ll update you as soon as we have more information :),” Samsung Bulgaria’s account replied to an inquiry on its official Facebook page.
We’ve heard whispers about the Samsung Galaxy Advance also getting an update directly to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but we can’t see the official confirmation of that just yet.
So there you have it, sounds like a certain thing coming from an official Samsung account and we’re definitely excited about the prospect of getting Jelly Bean - the 4.1 update brings much, much faster and smoother experience to Android.
