Soon after its siblings in the UK got the taste of Android 4.1 OS, it looks like Galaxy S2 Jelly Bean update is now available in the US, too, starting today — with the Sprint-bound handset (aka Epic 4G Touch) becoming the first US-based phone to be upgraded.
The phone units in North America has already been upgraded, a few weeks ago, to the Google’s Android version 4.1 of Jelly Bean operating system.
Moving on, as you would expect, the new Sprint Galaxy S2 Jelly Bean update will bring with it the ability to access Google Now, among a host of other features, including smooth user interface, better widgets and multitasking.
The Galaxy S2 Jelly Bean update on Sprint is being rolled out in phases which means it could take some time for all owners to receive their upgrade. So you’re advised to check for the update later on. Having that said, you need to check it through Samsung’s Kies Software, which can be downloaded here.
You can also sound off in comments area below if you, fortunately, have gotten the OTA push.
We’ll do a follow-up post on the update availability over other US carriers. Stay tuned.
