The new update brings features like Smart Stay, and performance improvements to the tablet. It also adds Group Play to this 7-inch tablet, which was also recently added to Galaxy Grand smartphone in the country as a part of a minor software update. Samsung had announced a better version of Group Play along with Galaxy S 4 smartphone, but the version released for Galaxy Grand or Galaxy Tab 2 310 is very limited in features and only allows sharing of music, documents and images to other supported Samsung devices.

Details:

  • Baseband version: DDCLK1
  • Build number: JZO54K| DDCMC1

Update: We have got more details on the update: Android 4.1.2 for Galaxy Tab 2 310 reportedly also brings new Samsung Keyboard with Continuous input like Skype, Paper artist, and New Gallery app.

Here are some screenshots:

Samsung has earlier rolled-out Android 4.1.1 update for Galaxy Tab 2 310 in December last year, which brought Google Now, improved notifications, UI updates, Project Butter performance improvements as well as Pop-up Play, blocking mode and more to the tablet.

In related news, Samsung has also begun Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update process for Galaxy Chat.

    Samsung Galaxy P310, J.B.4.1.2: After using ICS 4.0.4., 1. I did not know screen shot trick(y?), you have to press [+ ~count, 'one one thousand'/=1sec] , capture now works. All’s well now.2.After scrn shot in 4.0.4, you write(fingers) notes on the png image before saving.(very useful, but I prefer writing captions with TTFonts, (well, almost there with Playstore’s Photo Text), )now, JB 4.1.2, only option, stock photoeditor OR Paper Artist (useless). My stock photoeditor has no TTF caption NOR 4.0.4 pencil/paint, etc. screenwriting option.I suggest some developers create an app to allow user to select/change photoeditor option to ‘Photo Text’ at least until the next J.B. update.
    The only multi tasking is you can play a video clip while doing ONLY ONE MORE task. Creating a text document while viewing a photo -NO. Task switching only, if I am not correct, no task window resizing. I usually hit HOME key, when hit space bar on stock keyboard (better move it back to 4.0.4 position, and while you do that, please bring back 4.0.4 (‘way’) screen capture touch scr button to NEW position on, say, top drop down menu nearabouts) Overall, satisfied, nothing can’t work around, well give us the correction app.Thanks.

    Updated Galaxy tab 2 to 4.1.2 via Kies today morning. Took almost 4 hrs on a 512 K connection.
    Gotta say it was disheartening to find no multi screen options as its much more sensible to have that on a big screen tablet than a handheld.Performance seems to have gone down a bit , previous smooth screen transitions have become a bit jittery.Was waiting for this for a long time but isnt worth it. Changes I noticed, new interface Music App,Paper artist (who cares about this plus its anyway available on the App store).
    All those waiting for it on the S2 , it wont have multi screen. i downloaded official S2 Russian 4.1.2 firmware and upgraded. no issues with S2 but you may loose your warranty .

    We are waiting for the JB Update for S2 for a while now. There is no time frame for the update also. Poor service. I stopped recommending Samsung phones to my friends/family. Even Micromax has updated their flagship devices.

    Samsung you lost a fan!!

    When are we going to see S2 getting JellyBean update
