If you happen to live in the Great White North, you would have read about how the Galaxy Note 2 has received the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update already recently, and owners of the Galaxy S2 can now rejoice, as their handset, too, will be on the receiving end of this highly anticipated update, at least according to the good people over at SamMobile. Apparently, there were some reports trickling in that their Android 4.0.x Ice Cream Sandwich-powered Galaxy S2 models were making the leap to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, although it will not be the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean that recently rolled out for the GSM models of the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10.
With this Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update, do expect to see your fair share of user interface enhancements in addition to stability improvements alongside a bunch of other new features such as Google Now and Project Butter. Not only that, a spanking new Notification bar is thrown into the mix with additional notification toggles. If you have already updated your Galaxy S2 and given it a new lease of life, how do you find the update so far?
