The good old Galaxy Note is still an appealing device, with a big 5.3 inch screen, with a better resolution than the Note II, a cute little stylus and a pretty powerful Exynos CPU. That’s why we’re happy to inform you that the device just got the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update, in the international Galaxy Note GT-N7000 version.
All of you owners of Galaxy Note devices may not get the update right away, since the rollout takes place in phases. It may not be available for your country or network provider just yet, especially if your device is carrier branded, but it will arrive at some point in the future. Reasons to get excited about this are plenty, like the buttery smooth performance and great stability, thanks to Project Butter. Multi-view with multi windows multitasking, just like on the Note II is added, plus Page Buddy, a customizable notification panel and Smart Rotation, a feature that allows the screen to adjust to your angle of sight.
There’s also cloud support and functions like Direct Call, Smart Stay and Pop Up Play, famous on the Galaxy S III and Note II. New widgets, 2 Home screen modes and a new notification bar, plus Google Now are all welcome extras. You can update your Galaxy Note via Samsung Kies or by using OTA. So, did you get it? How’s it working for you?
