Samsung Galaxy S II’s Sprint variant Epic 4G Touch is now getting the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update in United States. Due to the file sizes and changes in the update, it is only available via Kies app, and not over-the-air.
Samsung Epic Touch 4G owners can now download and install Kies software on their PC or Mac and update their smartphone to the latest software version. As the software updates are rolled-out in phases, it might take some time to appear.
The update comes with the build number GB27 and is expected to bring features like Google Now, Project Butter improvements, enhanced notifications, better widgets, revamped Touchwiz UI and more to this smartphone. Sprint has not shared the full change-log.
The phone was originally released on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and has since got the Ice Cream Sandwich. The current update is the second major Android release for the phone and it is not surprising because Samsung Galaxy S II (Epic Touch 4G is based on S 2) was one of the most popular Samsung smartphones and it is apt that company supports it even after so many month of launch.
