The Samsung GT-I9070 Galaxy S Advance (also known as the Galaxy S II Lite) is an Android smartphone which was announced in January 2012 and released in April 2012 as an "advanced" variant to the original Galaxy S. The Galaxy S Advance has a 4-inch Super AMOLED Display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels at 233-ppi, a dual-core processor running at 1 GHz with 768MB of RAM, a 5 MP autofocus rear camera and a 1.3 MP fixed focus front-facing camera for video calls or self-portrait photography.[2] This device is running Android 2.3.6 (Gingerbread) out of the box but it can now be officially updated to Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean).[3] The Jellybean 4.1.2 update for the Samsung Galaxy S Advance was released by Samsung, beginning with the Russian firmware on 7 January 2013 and by now many other regions too got the update with only a few of them still remaining. This new firmware update now includes Samsung’s TouchWiz Nature UX and almost all of Jellybean's rich features. Users can now start updating their existing Gingerbread firmware via KIES or Over-The-Air once the update is made available to their country or region.
