Google’s Android Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S2 is expected to land via Kies sometime this week

Samsung is expected to unleash its Android Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S2 at some point during the next week, according to multiple sources.

The update – only available via Kies – will reduce internal memory from 12GB to 11GB, with 1GB being required for a system partition and will take around one hour to install, according to the source.

With Android Jelly Bean installed, you’ll get a whole host of new applications pre-installed on your Galaxy S2 such as Google+, Talk, Play Book, Play Movie, and of course the excellent Google Now.

Easy mode for new users and a new call-blocking mode are also included.

The Galaxy S2 was one of the biggest selling handsets of 2011/2012 and now that it is packing Jelly Bean, one of Google’s biggest and best updates to date, we can see it staying relevant for at least another 6 to 12 months.

So if you’re in the market for an affordable but thoroughly excellent Android handset, then look no further – the Galaxy S2 could very well be the device you’ve been looking for.

Galaxy S2 handsets are going for as little as £150 on eBay at present, making them quite the bargain. What are you waiting for?
