Galaxy Note GT-N7000 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update released
Back in 2011 Samsung started the new trend of the phablet device with the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note, which has now seen numerous manufacturers offering similar hardware to consumers. We now have the good news that the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update has been released.
Less than two weeks after the Galaxy S2 began to receive the new software Samsung has begun the process of updating its other flagship smartphone from 2011. The International version of the handset will get a new lease of life with the new OS with a number of features ported over from the Galaxy Note 2.
Obviously just like any other Android firmware update it will see a staggered release that will depend on what country you are in, and the carrier version of the handset you have. The 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update brings the Samsung Premium Suite features to the handset that includes a smoother more stable experience thanks to Project Butter.
The popular Samsung Multi-Window feature is also included in the update that allows users to run two applications at the same time on the display, e.g. you can have your Facebook page running at the top of the display and your email account open at the bottom.
Other new features include a customizable Notification Panel, Page Buddy, Google Now, Smart Rotation, and much more. Users can check for the update by connecting the device to the KIES application, or by going to the settings option on the handset and selecting About device, and then software updates.
Let us know if you have received the new Jelly Bean OS yet on your Galaxy Note.
