The Samsung Galaxy S2 Android 4.1 Jelly Bean release date has inched closer as Samsung Korea has posted details about the upcoming update on its website which could be a sign that the company is making final preparations for a roll out.

While it hasn’t specified a release date for the Galaxy S2 Jelly Bean update yet, Samsung Korea has posted the details of the upgrade to its website which could mean that a roll out, at least in Korea, is imminent. The posting, discovered by SamMobile, fills Galaxy S2 owners in on a lot of the details surrounding the promised update including the fact that the update will take the internal memory down from 12GB to 11GB and that it will roll out through Samsung Kies.

The Galaxy S2 Jelly Bean release date has inched closer.

Samsung Kies of course is Samsung’s software that allows owners to download software through their PC and that means that those with a Galaxy S2, again at least in Korea, shouldn’t be looking for an update to arrive Over-the-Air. (OTA)

The version of the software will likely be Android 4.1.2, the latest version of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and it will bring a host of new features to replace Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the current version of software running on the Galaxy S2.

Our favorite Android 4.1 features can be seen in the video below and Samsung will be making some additions to its own hardware as well. There will be improved camera functionality, Pop-Up Play for video, and Easy Mode which is perfect for newcomers to the software.

What this means for Galaxy S2 owners in the U.S. is unclear. We imagine that the Galaxy S2 Jelly Bean update will first roll out to owners in Korea and then spread to other regions later in the year. American carriers, and AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon all carry the Galaxy S2, are typically last to these updates so it could be awhile before those still toting the Galaxy S2 see their Jelly Bean update arrive.

We heard previously that the update might start in January and it’s now looking like that might be a possibility.
