Samsung has released a new firmware update for its Galaxy S II superphone. The new software makes your thin smartphone run Android 2.3.6, adding new features and fixing some of the known bugs. For instance, the software fixes lockscreen hang bug, introduces some changes on the Camera Interface, increases HSPA connectivity speed (more than 21Mbps?), while making the boot-up faster. Additionally, there are a number of security and performance improvements under the hood.
Now you should bear in mind that not all Galaxy S II versions are affected. As far as I’ve understood, unlocked versions are getting the firmware update while carrier-branded models will still have to wait for the green light from mobile operators. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait for too long to see Android 2.3.6 running on all Galaxy S II flavors sold all around the world.
Now to check whether there’s a new software ready for you, go to “Settings”, “About phone” and then “Check for updates.” It’s pretty easy…
