Samsung Galaxy Note 2 received Android 4.1.2 update in Canada with Multi Window support

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.1.2

The Android 4.1.2 update has been released a while back for the Galaxy Note 2 around the world, except Canada. Well today it seems to be their lucky day, as Samsung has just announced the update, which should be rolling out right now.

Unfortunately it’s pretty unclear which carriers will push the update right now, being known that they are the ones guilty for delaying the updates every time. This update to Android 4.1.2 brings all the goodies available to the other users, including Multi View.

Multi View allows you to open two apps at the same time in split-screen, which can prove to be really useful sometimes. And if two apps aren’t enough for you, you can even use Pop-up Video along with Multi Window, which actually makes 3 open apps at the same time.

The Android 4.1.2 update will also allow you to configure your notification toggles and also adds a new Driving Mode toggle. Personally I find this very useful, because there were way too many toggles and I always had to browse through them to find the ones I really need. And there are only 5 I ever use ( WiFi, GPS, Sound, S Beam, and Mobile Data ), which means the others are really useless for me.

While this is very good news, we were actually expecting Samsung to push updates sooner and were waiting for the Android 4.2 update on our beloved phablet, but there’s no news about that, unfortunately. Maybe Samsung wants to take us by surprise and they will update it directly to Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie once it’s released, but I doubt we’ll see that in the next 6 months.

If you still didn’t receive the 4.1.2 update for your Galaxy Note 2 please let us know, along with your location, because we’re curious to see if there are other countries or carriers left.

      you all are probably better off staying where your at. There is no multi view in this update, your battery drains really bad, and there are problems with the UI whee it just shuts down and freezes multiple times for no apparent reason.

    Rogers in Toronto. Just got the 4.1.2 update this morning. Multi-view n is there and works well. The only complaint is only certain apps are supported with multi view… not all apps.
