There’s not much information about the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S2 device, but now Samsung Korea has released official information about the update. Still there’s something missing, the launch date. First information is less positive as internal storage will be reduced from 12GB to 11GB, thanks to the new update partition. Also the update will be available only via KIES, with no OTA update option available.
Now the positive stuff. Android 4.1 for Galaxy S2 will include new features, such as Project Butter and Google Now. In addition to the new features there’s going to be some additional applications too, Google+, Google Play Books and Google Play Movies will be pre-loaded.
Check out the full features list from the source link after the break.

Last time when Android developers released Android distribution index, it showed that Android 4.1.x Jelly Bean was on 1.8 percent of the Android devices, but now it has jumped to claim more than 10 percent share. Android 4.0.x Ice Cream Sandwich, also grew it’s share of Android devices, presenting now 29.1 percent of the Android devices. Android 2.3 Gingerbread is still in most of the Android devices presenting now 47.6 percent from previous 50 percent share. This shows that Android developers are confidently taking advantage of the latest APIs, but as you can see it’s hard not to include Android 2.3 as it’s still the most popular Android OS out there. Check out more numbers from the source link after the break.
Next generation Samsung Galaxy S device is rumored to have S Pen, according to report from Enuri. Galaxy S(IV) is also going launch in April 2013, this is company’s action in order to bring Galaxy S device line closer to Note lineup. Enuri also posted some pretty nefty features that Galaxy S(IV) is going to have, including 5-inch AMOLED display with screen resolution of 1,920-by-1,080 resolution, a Exynos 5440 quad-core processor, a 13MP camera on the back and finally the smartphone is only 9.1mm thick.
For me, including S Pen in Galaxy S lineup would not make any sense, i highly doubt than Samsung would include S Pen.
If you like to play any apps on any device, there’s some good news for you. Bluestack from Mac hits beta and let’s you now run Android games and other apps in your Mac. The tool launched in beta form for Windows in March and a alpha version for Mac landed in June. Seems that apps downloaded from Amazon App Store works better than those downloaded directly from the Google Play. Anyway, you can now try Bad Piggies or even Flipboard on your Mac. You can download the Bluestack app from the source link after the break.
