The Samsung Galaxy S2 is definitely a legendary handset for Samsung, where it really pushed Samsung to the forefront of the smartphone market, being a decent challenger to the iPhone’s dominance at that point in time. Over the years, this handset has managed to keep up with the software update cycles, even when the Galaxy S3, and subsequently, the Samsung Galaxy S4 were released. Well, it does seem as though the Samsung Galaxy S2 might have reached the end of the road where its operating system is concerned, with word that this handset will not be on the receiving end of the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update.
Apparently, the reason cited for this halt in operating system updates is because the TouchWiz layer is not compatible with the update. To put it in plain English, the Samsung Galaxy S2 will be too old for the update, or it could be that the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update is light years ahead of the Galaxy S2 itself. Sorta like how certain new engines cannot be fixed into an old jalopy. Of course, none of this is finalized, but it was just the German site Connect.de that mentioned so.
