Samsung’s Korean office unveiled details of the upcoming Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S II and as far as we can tell, it will introduce some serious changes. Not only will you get the latest version of Android, but also a completely revamped system. For one thing, you’ll have a single gig less space after the update (11 instead of 12 GB), the change which is justified with re-partitioning of the memory system to accommodate all the changes.
In addition, you should also expect improved home screens and scrolling performance (thanks to project Butter), as well as enhanced usability for some applications. Moreover, there are new preloaded apps like Help, Google+, GTalk, Google Play Book and Google Play Move; as well as new and improved functions like easy/block mode, updated camera app, Smart Say, pop-up video play, and so on and on.
The sad news is that you’ll apparently have to update your Galaxy S II with Kies — over-the-air process can’t handle all these changes. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait for too long before our Galaxy S II units inform us about the update…
