Samsung has started rolling out updates recently for most of their devices. After the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 updates, now it’s the time for WiFi Galaxy Note 10.1 N8010. This OTA update brings Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to Samsung’s S-Pen tablet.
The update build name is JRO03C N8010 XXBLK9 and it’s Android 4.1.1. Unfortunately it’s not Google’s latest Android version, as 4.2 has been released some time ago, but any updates are welcome anyway. Also it’s possible to perform a manual update, without the risk of voiding the device’s warranty, because stock updates don’t require root access. We will write a guide soon and update this article once it’s ready.
Currently the update is only available in Germany, but more countries should be next very soon. If you didn’t get the update yet, you can try to search for updates on your tablet or Samsung’s Kies software.
This update weights about 300MB and it comes with the new Premium Suite, which is a really nice pack of apps and features. And Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean also brings some really nice features, like Google Now, a new notification system, Android Beam, improved FaceUnlock, camera and more.
Android 4.1 should also improve the Galaxy Note’s speed and battery life, because it’s much better optimized than Ice Cream Sandwich. All we hope is that Samsung did a good job with the update. We will find out more very soon, once we get our hands on it.
Hopefully Samsung is going to release Android 4.2 too for the Galaxy Note 10.1 N8010, considering it’s a pretty new tablet. But by then we will probably have Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie on Nexus devices, as it always happens.
Please let us know if you got the update. We are curious to see how fast does Samsung roll out the updates and when they will begin to release it in other countries.
