At last. According announced a Samsung spokesman CNET Asia Media, users of Samsung Galaxy S2, one of the most successful smartphones in the history of the Korean company (until the arrival of theSamsung Galaxy S3 ), finally receive the update to the version of OS Android 4.1 Jelly Bean from February. Chances are that Spanish users have to wait a few weeks to get this update to our country.Some of the new features that come with this version include voice assistant Google Now , the ability to watch videos while you use other apps or feature Smartstay.
One of the few niggles that you can blame on Samsung today in its mobile division (the company has become the largest seller of mobile phones and smartphones) is the lentitiud with reaching the market updates software their devices. This slowness is partly explained by the numerous performance and functionality tests carried out before approving an update, but the arrival of version 1.4 Android Jelly Beanto the Samsung Galaxy S2 is expected for the month of November , and getting longer than expected wait.
However, this delay may be worth as well as the improvements in this release own Samsung also plans to introduce some new features that can be found as early as the Samsung Galaxy S3 or the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Among the first developments of Jelly Bean Android 4.1 , is the inclusion of the wizard Google Now . This tool is similar to Siri iPhone and besides voice search provides as personalized information cards according to user preferences. For example, we receive daily information on traffic if we mark our place of work or information on a bus line that we searched in Google when we near a stop. Despite the obvious potential of such a tool is, it should be noted that until now has limited functionality in Spanish (cards appear less desirable).
Another improvement of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is greater speed and fluidity of the system compared to the previous version of Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich . As for the improvements built by Samsung , one of which is the ability to play videos (which have stored within the app, for example, will not work with YouTube videos) while we are doing other actions on the phone. This video will become a sliding window which can be adjusted to the desired size and move across the screen. Another aspect that will come in this update will be the functionality Smartstay , which prevents the screen off if you’re looking straight.
In any case, we should expect to be officially confirmed this news. It is likely that Spanish users begin receiving the update in March , but those who have not released their Samsung Galaxy S2 may have to endure a few more weeks to the operators deploy this update.
