Galaxy Ace 2 is a popular mid-scale smartphone that has attracted many for its affordability and features. There have been reports that Samsung will update the Ace 2's firmware, which will enable some functions and fix some of the glitches of its current firmware and already, the Galaxy Ace 2's loayl patrons are anticipating the upgrade.
Samsung pre-released the Jelly Bean firmware for the Galaxy Ace 2 today and provided screenshots to tease fans and enthusiasts. Users can update to Jelly Bean on March or April. Some of the Samsung smartphones such as the Galaxy series, namely, Beam, Music, Ace Plus, Mini 2, and Chat have also been reported to be possibly upgraded earlier on. Furthermore, all of these units will already feature the full touch interface, TouchWiz Nature UX, along with other devices by Samsung that run on Android operating system.
One of the most popular mid-range smart phones is the Galaxy Ace 2. A recent leak from SamMobile shows that it will be given a well-deserved upgrade to 4.1.2 Android Jelly Bean, which many will find useful and timely. This will definitely up the ante on mid-range phones against more expensive ones such as the Note 2, S3 and the S4.
Some of the first Galaxy Ace 2 units will be shipped first to Ukraine, according to the leak. The site also features what looks like the ROM build and you will find this on their firmware section. You might even be able to flash it to see if it greatly improves the Galaxy Ace and to experience additions such as Google Now. A new interface might also be thrown in (Nature UX). Be careful when flashing though and follow instructions carefully and don't forget to back up.
It looks like Samsung has got its hands full with the newly announced Galaxy S 4. One might start to think that Samsung has only eyes for this new smartphone. However, this is not the case and with the release of the new Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Ace 2, which currently runs the Gingerbread app, things could just heat up with the Ace family. True enough, Samsung announces plans for a 3rd generation Galaxy Ace.
Based on reliable sources, the GT-S7272 is a considerable upgrade of the former. It now packs a 4-inch screen, still with an unconfirmed resolution. It is also rumored to have a 1.2 dual core processor that will definitely rock the entry level mobile class. The only remnants of its Ace 2 heritage is its 5mp rear camera. It will have a 4GB storage. Hopefuls would also like to have a 1 gig of RAM. It is said to come in various colors- Black, Blue, White and Red.
The Galaxy Ace 3 will also purportedly be released sometime in June this year and might be priced around 300 Euros.
Galaxy Ace devices are surely some of the earliest to receive updates from Android. Yesterday, the 4.1.2 Jelly Bean was rolled out to the delight of Galaxy Ace 2 users. Also, prior to this, a software update was leaked for the Ace 2, so a few have chanced upon the new features of their phone even before the platform was officially rolled out.
The update was sent OTA to Ace 2 users but you may also download and install, using the links found online. You can also push the update to your phone from your desktop PC software. Note however that the update will not happen simultaneously for everybody around the world. Some will get it earlier than others.
The latest Android Jelly Bean will help you get more value for your Galaxy Ace 2 and many will really find the modifications and the Google Now more useful.
