Samsung has announced on its Korean website that it will begin updating its Galaxy S II smartphone to Android 4.1 'Jelly Bean' in February. The message has since been removed, but not before Samsung fansite SamMobile managed to get a screenshot of the page. The update will be available through the Samsung Kies software, and will take up 1GB of the device's internal memory.

The update will add functionality to the device, and is set to extend its already long two year lifespan. It also follows the release of the Galaxy S II Plus last week, a Jelly Bean version of the Galaxy S II, powered by a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.2GHz.
