Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Update For Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Brings Premium Suite Apps

For most of the customers, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 came pre-loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Fortunately, the South Korea-based company has taken care of the firmware update matter and, in the coming days, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will roll out for Galaxy Note 10.1.

Even though many of the Android-powered tablets do not receive updates beyond the pre-loaded firmware, Samsung has prepared a pleasant surprise for the Galaxy Note 10.1 owners. Besides the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 you should be able to install in the coming days, the new firmware also packs a number of new features called Premium Suite.

Detailed in the video below, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Premium Suite for Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 does a better job than ICS and takes the most out of the processing power hidden under the case of the highly-appreciated tablet.

Once you install the new update, you will be able to have up to 16 apps opened simultaneously on the same screen. You can resize the window of each application, move it around or place it in front of at the back of another opened application.

Courtesy of the new Air View feature packed in the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, by hovering the S Pen over a folder, photo collection, email or calendar appointment, you can see a preview of the respective content. With more or less suggestive names, the new firmware update will also bring features like Easy Clip, Quick Command, Photo Note, Paper Artist and more.

In case you are wondering Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 sports a 10.1-inch PLS TFT display with a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels, Samsung’s proprietary Exynos 4 Quad CPU clocked at 1.4 GHz doubled by Mali 400MP GPU, 2 GB of RAM and 16/32/64 GB of internal storage. It runs Android 4.0.3 ICS out of the box, while the 5 megapixel camera on the back has autofocus, LED flash and HD video recording capabilities.

If there’s a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 somewhere around you we would appreciate if you let us know whether you received the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update on your tablet.

    Still waiting!

    I just applied the update manually, and I can say, good job on that one so far. the update fixed some lag issues of the multiwindow feature nad the air view feat is just plane useful. The upgraded s-note and s-pen gestures just add up to the really good tools our tablet offers us. Imo, thumbs up.

  • Anshul

    Nope… just checked I haven’t received the update yet 🙁

  • DNS

    Not yet in Sri lanka…eagerly waiting

  • nb

    I don’t think I’ll buy another android tablet.

    I really like my Note 10.1 and it is far far superior to my iPad. But I am so sick of waiting for Samsung to update it that I’m thinking about going back to Apple 🙁

    Customers in Germany got this update a month ago. Why am I still waiting?

    • Justin McNairy

      Why Apple? What benefits does Apple offer on the iPad? It the same old boring software since the first generation of iPhone. Even with the current latest version of Android on Note 10.1, it still didn’t letting me down yet. Now with the new update coming with lot of new features (more than expected), it make Note 10.1 a powerful device to own. Currently, it still the most powerful device to own any day! I don’t give a shit about iPad stunning retina display (In which Samsung produced)

      • NB

        I also don’t care about the retina display.
        What I do care about is receiving updates in a timely manner. I want the Jelly Bean update. I do not want my German colleagues telling me how fabulous the Jelly Bean update is when I’m unable to download it.
        Whether you like Apple or not this doesn’t happen with their gear.
        If the update was ready and distributed in Germany a month ago why am I still waiting?

        • Scott Madde

          You also have to consider that the tablet was released in august, and it’s already getting a big upgrade. And looking at Samsung a few years back, this is a big step forward. I don’t think jumping ship will also help you get the update faster either, but if you’re eager enough, try using the German build. Even if it is forN8000, you can apply it to N8013. I’m running it now.

  • dj willz

    like always samsung does not give what they say they will give how sad!

  • Whats more disturbing is that @ 500$ the plastic case has a plastic lamanent over it, that is starting to seperate, kind of like in your car, around the windoow, the trim starts to part from the metal….less than a month!

    • Daniel

      @trebor: There is a protective skin over the tablet to protect it in shipping, which you are supposed to peel off after unpacking. Is that what you’re seeing?

      • lol


  • Scott

    Nope. Just bought a Note 10.1 today and performed a manual upgrade. Still on version 4.0.4. Can’t wait for the update. Already have it for the Galaxy S III and it makes a big difference

  • dc

    nothin mane. come on Samsung!

  • Vernon

    Got it in the UK this morning!

  • dj willz

    samsung samsung samsung 🙁

  • Daniel

    The update was available yesterday for me (in the UK) and I installed it this morning. It works OK but doesn’t seem so different from ICS. I had hoped the update might bring (back) support for USB mass storage (UMS) but no such luck. 🙁

  • Mich

    Does anyone know when it’s going to be available in Switzerland?

  • Deepak

    When will it arrive in India? Waiting from 3 months. It’s giving some of the best features.

  • Joyce

    I have been waiting for the update for a long time now. Hoping to get it real soon.
    I will try to check for update through Kies (in case it is not available over the air).
    Hoping to get update before the new year.

  • I have not got the update yet. I love my note though.

  • gaticca

    Just updated my note gtN8000 to 4.1.1. Update size 411.10 Mb. So fellow users in India can check for OTA updates.
