The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 came pre-loaded with Android Jelly Bean when it launched earlier this year. Things have just got even better for owners of the device because Samsung have now begun rolling out Android 4.1.2 on the over-sized smartphone.
The update to the latest version of Android Jelly Bean is a minor one, but it still brings a number of new additions to the Galaxy Note 2. Firstly, the Android browser is now quicker meaning that browsing on 3G and 4G is faster than ever.
A number of improvements have also been made to Samsung's TouchWiz interface including the option to toggle specific notifications on or off enabling absolute control of the notification bar. Furthermore, the lock-screen now supports a new "Ink Effect" which makes the screen cloudy when swiped.
Samsung have also updated the Group Messaging application and given users the option to disable "Multiview" after some had complained that the feature was slowing down their Galaxy Note 2. As always with these updates a number of bugs has been resolved and overall it's that bit faster than before.
Samsung have already begun rolling out Android 4.1.2 on the Galaxy Note 2 in Poland with the rest of markets expected to follow shortly.
