It’s nice to see how Samsung took its time to bring the latest software updates for its high-end smartphones launched last year: Samsung Galaxy S2 and the first gen Galaxy Note where the sales hits of the South Korean company in 2011.
It was officially announced that Samsung Galaxy Note will receive Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update with Premium Suite pack. We are talking about Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update with the user interface and the special apps that Samsung brought on Galaxy Note 2 or Galaxy S3.
The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy Note brings the Project Butter improvements for the user interface and the reputed Google Now. There are also a series of new features like Multi View (two apps on the same screen in the same time), support for hand writing in S Planner and mail, an improved S Note application, Photo Note, Easy Clip, Paper Artist, and many other more.
The release date of the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy Note was not specified, but we are expecting it to hit the terminals OTA sometime in early 2013.
As usual, the unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note will be the first to receive the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update with Premium Suite pack, therefore if you purchased a carrier branded terminal you will still have to wait a couple of more weeks until the software engineers of the carriers get to test the new firmware.
I remind you that Samsung Galaxy Note was released in October 2011, packing a 5.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 800 x 1,280 pixels protected by Gorilla Glass, a dual-core Exynos processor at 1.4 GHz, 1 GB of RAM. Galaxy Note also comes with 16/32/64 GB of internal storage with support for microSD, WiFi in all standards, Bluetooth, microUSB, 3.5 mm audio jack, and an 8 megapixel camera with full HD video recording capabilities.
