Samsung Galaxy Note Gets Jelly Beaned

 

Samsung Galaxy Note

Samsung launched the Galaxy Note all the way back in November of 2011 and it's spawned a number of successors including the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy Note 10.1.

 

Earlier this month we bought you news that Samsung would be releasing Android 4.1.2 for the Galaxy Note. The good news for owners of the original phablet is that Samsung have now released Android Jelly Bean for their device.

 

Owners of the Galaxy Note should receive automatic notification that Android Jelly Bean is now available to download. What improvements does the new version of Android bring to Samsung's Galaxy Note ?

 

The update to Android 4.1.2 brings a number of new features to the Galaxy Note including "Multiview" which brings true multi-tasking to the phablet. Additionally, it also include "Pagebuddy" which opens a dedicated home-screen based on a users actions, such as inserting headphones.

 

Samsung Galaxy Note owners will now be able to take advantage of continuous text-input when using the on-screen keyboard. The new feature works very similarly to Swype which is a hugely popular mobile application.

 

Things get even better because the new update also includes the updated version of Samsung's Premium Suite.  The latest version of Samsung's Premium Suite includes improved versions of all of Samsung's S-Pen applications including S-Pen, S-Memo and many more.

 

As always 3G recommends you backup your data and settings before installing the latest version of Android on your Galaxy Note.
