Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 was supposed to jump from Android 2.3.x Gingerbread straight to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean without any Ice Cream Sandwich landing in between. And as we already know, Samsung has been testing out the Jelly Bean firmware for its Galaxy Ace 2 smartphones. Now, the test firmware for this once popular mid-ranger has leaked.
According to the leaked firmware, Samsung will be using its own Nature UX interface, which was initially announced on the Galaxy S3 smartphone and this might be the case with other mid-range smartphones like the Galaxy Beam, Galaxy Music, Galaxy Chat, Galaxy Ace Plus and Galaxy Mini 2, which will be receiving the Jelly Bean upgrades in the near future.
