Samsung had started to push Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update to the Galaxy S2 (GT-I9100G). Samsung managed to keep true to their word that the Samsung Galaxy S II would officially see Jelly Bean. This will put the device on software that is as up to date as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The Galaxy S2 was the best-selling Android device of 2011 and has a very large user base that is why Samsung keeps on updating this device with all the new Android versions as they want to provide the Galaxy S2 users with their best support experience.
The update is official, which means you can get it via Kies or an OTA.
