Google’s latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is said to make its way towards the Samsung Galaxy S3 sometime in the third quarter of this year, and there are also whispers in the street that this particular operating system update will also be on its way to appear on the Samsung Galaxy S2, Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 2 (which was recently announced officially). Right now, the Galaxy S3 undergoing the testing phase for its firmware, and a public version of the first Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S3 is in the pipeline. Other than that, it is said that Samsung is testing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the Galaxy S2, and initial tests do look just fine. It makes perfect sense though to release Jelly Bean for this particular smartphone, especially when it is still doing extremely well in terms of sales. The Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Note, too, (sorry I could not resist that bit), will also be part of this Jelly Bean update throng, although we do not have anything official from Samsung just yet.

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?
– After falling significantly in 2020, oil prices have returned to pre-pandemic levels
– The rise has been driven by OPEC+ production cuts and an improving economic climate
– Higher prices are likely to support a rebound in oil-producing emerging markets
– Further virus outbreaks or increased production would pose challenges to price stability
A combination of continued production cuts and an increase in economic activity has prompted oil prices to return to pre-pandemic levels – a factor that will be crucial to the recovery of major oil-producing countries in the Middle East and Africa.
Brent crude prices rose above $60 a barrel in early February, the first time they had exceeded pre-Covid-19 values. They have since continued to rise, going above $66 a barrel on February 24.
The ongoing increase in oil prices, which have soared by 75% since November and around 26% since the beginning of the year, marks a dramatic change from last year.
Following the closure of many national borders and the implementation of travel-related restrictions to stop the spread of the virus, demand for oil slumped globally.
In the wake of the Saudi-Russia price war in early 2020, Brent crude prices fell from around $60 a barrel in February that year to two-decade lows of $20 a barrel in late April, as supply increased and demand plummeted. The value of WTI crude – the main benchmark for oil in the US – fell to record lows of around $40 a barrel last year on the back of a lack of storage space.
While global demand for oil remains low, one factor credited with reversing the trend is the decision to make significant cuts to oil production, which subsequently tightened global supplies.
