Samsung starts rolling out the 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Ace 2
It's time to take it to Facebook and let the world know that your Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 I8160 is getting updated to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. One of our main gripes with the handset, when the manufacturer first released it in the middle of 2012, was that it came with the aging Android 2.3 Gingerbread, instead of something more contemporary like ICS or JB. Thankfully, Samsung is righting the wrong right now as it has started the roll-out of the 4.1 update for this trusty mid-ranger.

If you aren't getting a notification about a pending update yet - don't panic! As always, the roll-out is happening in stages, with some markets getting the new software earlier or later than others. Still, if you can't wait, you can always check if the update is available through Samsung's desktop program  - Kies. Software updates tend to arrive there earlier than over-the-air.

This update should bring the software version of your smartphone to I8160XXMC8, and it's going to incorporate all the key Jelly Bean features like Project Butter, Google Now, enhanced keyboard and more. Of course, Samsung's custom features will also be on board. It's not clear yet if the TouchWiz Nature UI will be part of the update, but it certainly makes sense for it to be included.
