Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for Samsung Galaxy Note to Roll Out in March

Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for Samsung Galaxy Note

More than a month after Samsung promised that Galaxy Note will receive the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update, the Ukrainian version of Samsung’s website confirms the release date of the firmware update.

The owners of the first generation Samsung Galaxy Note will not be neglected when it comes to the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware update. Samsung always said that the hardware configuration of the devices was always an impediment when releasing new software updates for their terminals.

It’s not the case with Samsung Galaxy Note. The first phablet manufactured by the South Korea-based company comes with a 5.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels protected against scratches by a Corning Gorilla Glass layer. It also sports a dual-core Exynos chipset with 1.4 GHz Cortex A9 cores and Mali 400MP GPU.

Samsung Galaxy Note also comes with 1 GB of RAM, 16/32/64 GB of internal storage and all the connectivity features worthy of a modern smartphone: WiFi in all standards, 3G, microUSB 2.0, 3.5 mm audio jack, and microSD card slot.

All these technical specifications recommend the Samsung Galaxy Note for the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware update and the South Korea-based comapny will soon roll it out.

A couple of days ago a website belonging to Samsung Ukraine revealed details regarding the exact dates when the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update will roll out for various Samsung terminals. According to the list, the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy Note will be the first to roll out on the company’s smartphones, on March 1st.

Apparently, Samsung Galaxy tab 7.0 will received the Jelly Bean update on February 22, while the Galaxy Tab 8.9 was supposed to receive the Android Ice Cream Sandwich update as of January 24th.

As usual, the Android 4.1.2 update for Samsung Galaxy Note will roll out first on the unlocked terminals, thus if you purchased the smartphone with a contract you will have to wait longer until it arrives on your device, as the software engineers working for the carrier will need some time to customize it.

Most of the smartphone makers are sometimes pushing the update on several devices in order to run some tests, thus if you are lucky enough you might have already received the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean on your Galaxy Note. In order to check whether the update is already available on your terminal go to Settings > About Phone > Software Update and tap Check for Updates. Is it already available on your device?

    Finally I’ve been waiting for this update since it came out for Galaxy S3 and i almost lost hope when it didn’t come out in late January but FINALLY…I am sick of us note users lacking behind with ICS.

      Couldn’t agree more. Samsung has let us down after making them and the note successful. ICS is too too glitchy. 7 months of it is driving me away from Samsung for taking so long to update. 8 months after jelly bean came out is the new promise. Damn, entire new phones and new OSs are developed with new generations of technology in that much time. But I guess we wouldn’t be bringing new revenue. Though they are wrong…how many will buy another note after what they did? Old sucky-phone customers are new potential customers that you’re ignoring Samsung. Windows here I come.

    Assurer four other broken promises, I’ll believe it when I see it. It will likely be too late cause due to the ics glitches for the last six months, ice decided to sell my phone and but a non Samsung jelly bean or windows.
    I do hope they get it by march for the rest of the pioneering and patient customers who made the note and Samsung successful without anything to show for it, sadly.
