Back in August, Samsung confirmed not once, but twice that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates for the Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and Samsung Galaxy Note would be rolling out soon. A few weeks ago, the company started rolling out the Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update and today, the Galaxy Note 10.1 Jelly Bean update began which means that the Galaxy Note Jelly Bean update should be next in line.
The roll out of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Jelly Bean update today in Germany is a great sign for Galaxy Note owners waiting for the Jelly Bean update as it now means that Samsung has begun pushing the Android 4.1 updates for two of the three devices it said would soon see Jelly Bean. Assuming Samsung is sticking to what it originally said, and at this point it has, it means that the Galaxy Note Jelly Bean update is likely the next update to roll out from Samsung.
Samsung still hasn’t said when the Galaxy Note Jelly Bean update might arrive but we’ve already seen leaks and rumors previously pegged the update as rolling out sometime in the fourth quarter of this year.
If true, it means that it could roll out in November and December.
Of course, this is regarding the start of the Galaxy Note roll out. Owners of the AT&T will recall waiting for many weeks after the initial roll out to receive the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update and it could be that something similar happens here.
AT&T owners will obviously be hoping for another outcome as the Galaxy Note Jelly Bean update is looking like it could be a big one, chock full of features including the powerful split screen multitasking feature that arrived with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, the original Galaxy Note’s successor.
A leaked video also suggests that Samsung may be bringing the TouchWiz Nature UX to the Galaxy Note as well. Those features come in addition to the many that will be coming along with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean itself including a smoother UI, improved camera and browser apps, improved Notifications and more.
