Samsung Galaxy S2 Gets Android 6.0 Marshmallow Thanks to CM13 Nightly
If you still use the classic Samsung Galaxy S2 or has it in some drawer at home, you will be happy to know that it has finally received the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow thanks to CyanogenMod 13.
Galaxy S2 was launched back in May 2011 with Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread out of the box, followed by an official update to Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean. The phone is stuck on Android 4.1 forever; but thanks to Cyanogen team, who has granted the device support for KitKat and Lollipop.
As of yesterday, the most popular ROM maker released the first nightly build of CyanogenMod 13 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow for the aging Galaxy S2. Since it’s a nightly build, there may appear bugs and the OS is probably not reliable and stable enough for daily use.
As a reminder, here’s a list of Galaxy S2 specifications:
- Display : 4.27 “, 480 x 800 pixels, Super AMOLED Plus
- Processor : Dual-core Samsung Exynos 4210
- RAM : 1 GB
- Memory : 16/32 GB, MicroSD memory card
- Camera : 8 megapixel, full HD video
- Battery : 1650 mAh
