Samsung Galaxy Note users will soon have access to the Google Android Jelly Bean 4.1 upgrade. A rumor for the update to the first Note Phablet was first mentioned in August but then laid dormant until today.
The new upgrade arrives just as Samsung begins to launch its new premium suite, a software option that aims to improve Google Android functionality. Samsung previously confirmed that its premium suite software would arrive for the Galaxy S III smartphone and the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. By adding the software to the Note the company effectively covers the smartphone, phablet and tablet markets.
A page for the Galaxy Note upgrade was spotted by Engadget and showcases some impressive features. Among new options will be Multi Windows support, the ability to take advantage of pop-up notes, new video support and multiple browser windows.
The premium suite upgrade also brings with it Photo Note and Photo Frame apps, a new cropping system that is suppose to be easier to use and handwriting support on S Planner and the Email client.
The S Note has also been given a larger set of templates and effects and it adds the Paper Artist app which allows for photo editing via the devices S Pen sytlus.
Google Now will be the featured item on the Google Android 4.1 update when it reached users devices.
Samsung has not announced when the Google Android 4.1 upgrade will roll out for Samsung Note users, however because the update relies on wireless carrier support it is likely that some users will receive the update before others.
We expect the Note’s Android 4.1 update to arrive sooner then later as the device continues to age itself out of the market
Will you be making the upgrade to Google Android 4.1 on your Galaxy Note phablet or sticking with your current iteration of Google Android?
