Looks like Samsung is doing the amazing and continuing support for the Galaxy S II. Today, a Jelly Bean 4.1.2 build leaked for the international Galaxy S II I9100. That’s right, after the T-Mobile and Sprint Galaxy S III’s just got 4.1.1 officially, the S II gets 4.1.2 leak. The same day the international S III gets a 4.1.2 leak. Samsung, you’re on a roll!
That’s not the best part, either. Not only is the firmware 4.1.2, but it is also nearly identical to the 4.1.2 firmware on the S III. It’s based on the new TouchWiz UX launched with the Galaxy S III. It has Smart Stay, Pop-up Play, Direct Call, Blocking Mode, and other such cool new features. It also includes Project Butter, making the device fly. With 4.1.2 of course come both Google Now and one finger expandable notifications. And if you’re planning to hand down your S II to your grandmother, there is also an easy mode for users new to smartphones. It’s an absolutely fantastic update full of features. I still can’t believe Samsung is putting such serious support into the Galaxy S II. I’m sure this will breathe new life into my phone.
SamMobile says that, despite being pre-release software, it’s near perfect and should roll out quite soon based on its state of completion. If you want to flash it on your international S II now, you can do so by hitting the source link. It has all the downloads and instructions. But keep in mind it still is pre-release software so do so at your own risk. Have fun!
