We already knew that February 6 is was the day that Samsung will roll out the Android Jelly Bean update for the Canadian Galaxy Note 2. It looks like the South Korea-based phone maker kept its promise and has already started to release the software to the Note 2 owners.
Even if its still morning time, some of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 users say that they have received and installed the Android 4.1.2 update. So far, the firmware update is already available for customers of four of the Canadian carriers meaning SaskTel, Rogers, Bell and Telus. However, it’s really early and more carriers could be added to the list.
Apart form the features of the standard Android Jelly Bean, the JZ05K firmware could add others such as multi-window support, support for traditional and simplified Chinese, a new notification panel that can be customized, a new lockscreen ink effect, Swype-style keyboard, etc.
The Galaxy Note 2 was announced in August 2012 and it’s the second so called “phablet” launched by Samsung. It sports a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a pixel resolution of 1280 x 720. It has 2GB of RAM and it’s available in three versions, depending on its internal storage space (16/32/64 GB). It has an 8MP camera with autofocus and and LED flash and it’s capable of recording HD video. Also, at the moment of its release it was running Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.
