Back in late November last year, we has news from the Samsung officials that the Jelly Bean update would hit the Samsung Galaxy Advance GT-I9070 some time in January 2012. The Korean manufacturer has kept its word by surprising us with the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware update for the Galaxy Advance. Most of us were expecting the it after the Galaxy S2 Jelly Bean update roll out but it has made its way quite sooner.
As always, Samsung has started the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware update roll out from a particular country. This time it is Russia where the Galaxy Advance users have got a reason to rejoice. The latest update, which is also known as what Samsung terms the Premium Suite Upgrade, will bring a lot of new features and improvements to your phone. Some of the striking changes that you will discern after updating your phone to Android 4.1.2 are: Google Now, enhanced TouchWiz user interface, smoother UI experience (thanks to the Project Butter!), new Notification Panel with editable toggle shortcuts, new Blocking Mode, ripple lockscreen (same as Galaxy S3), clock weather widget from SGS3, and several others.
As we said, the Android 4.1.2 firmware update is available to th Galaxy Advance users in Russia via Samsung Kies and Over-the-Air features. You can check for the update by Going to Settings > About > Software Update option. Since it is an Unbranded firmware, you can install it on any International version of the Galaxy Advance model number GT-I9070, regardless of what country you belong.
