Samsung Galaxy S2 just like its successor, the Galaxy S3, has seen its share of fame during its release time and it is because of this reason that it doesn’t surprise us at all that Samsung Galaxy S2 is one of the very first few devices in the world to get the goodness of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on Samsung Galaxy S2 was made possible because of a ROM which goes by the name CyanogenMod 10. The ROM is still in its developing stage and in fact is a very early build and hence has a fare amount of issues and bugs. If YouMobile is to be believed then the ICS build mainly has problems with audio.
Just like installing a custom ROM on any other smartphone, installing the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean custom ROM on Samsung Galaxy S2 would void the device’s warranty and of course there are chances(very minute) that your device might get bricked. However, if you are still keen on installing Jelly Bean then be sure to head over to XDA and search for “Jelly Bean for Samsung Galaxy S2″.
Samsung Galaxy S2 features Dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9 processor complemented by 1 GB RAM. Samsung Galaxy S2 currently comes with Android v2.3.4 Gingerbread which is officially upgradable to v4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Galaxy S2 also comes with 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen which packs 480 x 800 pixels. Samsung does not disappoint us in terms of storage at all, the Galaxy S2 comes with 16GB/32GB of internal storage which can be further expanded through a microSD card up to 32GB.
It is still a matter of argument between many experts whether the comparatively low tech specs of the Samsung Galaxy S2 are good enough to handle the Jelly Bean or not. While some tech blogs and magazines have voiced that S2 will not be compatible with Jelly Bean at all, on the other hand, users who are already using Jelly Bean on their Galaxy S2 see no problem.
Feel free to share your views on Samsung Galaxy S2 getting Jelly Bean and do you really think that S2 is capable enough to handle Android Jelly Bean flawlessly?
