SamMobile said Galaxy S III will get Android 4.1 soon after Samsung test Android 4.1 for Galaxy S II, so Galaxy S2 should get first upgrade to Jelly Bean which hopes for end of this year.

3 Models of Samsung Galaxy would get the upgrade after Galaxy SIII:

  • Galaxy S II

Android 4.1, Jelly Bean

Android 4.1, Jelly Bean

Beside the upgrade, we should aware of what are the great features of Jelly Bean?

Let’s have a look to some review of Jelly Bean I have found, they are so interesting to get to know.

Bye Bye Adobe Flash! Xbitlabs said in late June that Jelly Bean is no longer support Adobe Flash.

Not only Android Jelly Bean, a latest Android OS is no longer support flash player if reported by xbitlabs but including also Windows 8 OS, Windows Phone 8 system.

“Beginning August 15th we will use the configuration settings in the Google Play Store to limit continued access to Flash Player updates to only those devices that have Flash Player already installed. Devices that do not have Flash Player already installed are increasingly likely to be incompatible with Flash Player and will no longer be able to install it from the Google Play Store after August 15th,” Adobe said.

3 main things that BusinessInsider said about Android Jelly Bean beside other stuffs:

  • Smooth Like Butter:

Google calls it as “Project Butter,” a system of slick animations and speed improvements that make the OS a delight to use. Now Android can predict where you’re going to swipe your finger next and animate the screen to reflect that.

  • Google Now:

Google Now is more than just a search tool. It essentially acts as your brain, giving you updates on your flight information, meeting times, and even scores for your favorite sports teams.

  • The Downside:

Jelly Bean isn’t perfect. Look to the application in Google Play Store  to compare to app in Apple Store, the app is not up to date for all android device.

And with Engadget in late June, they focus on some interesting features that we can benefit with Jelly Bean:

  • Predictive keyboard: The new prediction algorithm tucked into Jelly Bean’s factory keyboard is hugely noteworthy
  • Offline Maps: It will save your data rate, you can just download your city map and go around with Google Map
  • Homescreen tweaks: you will find a homescreen that’s easier to get along with.
  • Google Now and voice search (That’s the Google Now)
  • Offline voice dictation: Now not require live Internet for when we ask a question, just to get an answer. Google makes thing more simple than ever
  • Wrap-up: Jelly Bean also supports a new tap-to-air feature for Bluetooth-plus-NFC-enabled speakers

It sounds very great to try new Android OS, Jelly Bean, hope to got upgrade as soon as possible.
