Samsung might not give Android 4.2 treatment to Galaxy S2 due to 'problems with TouchWiz'

Samsung has always been known to offer timely software updates for its devices. As a matter of fact it goes an extra mile in order to ensure that majority of the older devices get upgraded as well. But as it turns out, its two year old flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S2 will not get the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update.
When Samsung released the list of the devices which will be getting the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update, the Galaxy S2 managed to make its way to that list. However it is believed that Samsung has run into “adjustment problems with TouchWiz” and may not be able to deliver the promise it once made.
Nevertheless Samsung has given the device two major Android updates since it was launched. It was launched with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and was later upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It was followed by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade but that will be the last update it gets as per the word on the street.
The same has been the case for the Galaxy Note as well. The upgrade path for it is also in the dark for the time being. What is interesting is the fact that the Galaxy S2 Plus will be upgraded to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean despite the fact that it is practically the same unit, barring the processor and a couple of other things.
Expecting Samsung to provide software upgrades for a two year old flagship smartphone is a overkill according to us, but you never know when Samsung decides to pull a bunny out of the hat and starts rolling out the update for the device.
