Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Update for Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 Now Available

Android 4.1.2 update for Galaxy Note

In September 2012, the South Korea-based company promised that the Samsung Galaxy Note will be updated to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, without revealing the exact date when the firmware will roll out.

Samsung Galaxy Note is company’s first phablet, being the second most popular Samsung smartphone in 2011, after Galaxy S2. The popular Samsung Galaxy Note is now receive Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, being a smartphone that sold millions and prepared the market for Note 2, its successor, that outsold the previous generation.

The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy Note will roll out in phases, thus you might not be able to update your smartphone right away. Of course, the unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note units will be the first to receive the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update, so if you purchased your Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 on contract you might have to wait a couple of weeks until the software engineers working for the carrier optimize the new software version.

Besides the new features that come pre-loaded with the new Android firmware version, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 also brings the TouchWiz UI-specific features, that are already available on the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2.

Once you update your Samsung Galaxy Note to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, the new software will bring build to version JZO54K, that comes with all the Jelly Bean-specific goodies.

Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for Samsung Galaxy Note brings a new buttery smooth performance and improved stability courtesy of Google’s Project Butter, Page Buddy, customizable notifications area, improved and extendible notifications, and the highly-appreciated Google Now.

You will also notice some visual changes in the notifications bar, while TouchWiz Nature UX will bring some of the features that made the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2 such popular devices. You will be able to enjoy Multi Window, Smart Rotation (the screen orientation adjusts according to the viewing angle), Swipe keyboard, Samsung’s cloud services, new Samsung widgets, 2 homescreen modes, and motion controls like Direct Call, Smart Stay, or Pop-up-play.

You can use either Samsung Kies or OTA to update your Samsung Galaxy Note to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. If you choose the later option we would recommend you to be connected to a WiFi hotspot given the update package size.

If you haven’t received the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean notification message yet you should check for the update manually. In order to do so go to Settings > About phone > Software update and tap on Check for updates.

In case you forgot, Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 comes with a Super AMOLED display sized 5.3 inches diagonally, dual-core 1.4 GHz Exynos 4 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 16/32/64 GB of internal storage. It also packs an 8 megapixel camera with full HD video recording support, while the connectivity features bring WiFi in all standards, Bluetooth, micorUSB, 3.5 mm audio jack, and microSD card support.

  • kaushik

    I have received jelly bean update on my Galaxy noteN7000. the screen looks really neat. I am now exploring the new features. They are cool.spatially the new camera and the Swype keyboard. The phone was feeling slow.I installed cool tool to monitor system performance.I find that cpu usage its very high. Even when the phone is on standby cpu usage Is 30+ %. It hits 100% a lot of times,with only pne small running. Otherwise its great.I was planning too upgrade my phone to a note 2 but now I have changed my mind.I can live with my note for some more time. Jellybean its cool
