Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Jelly Bean Update Arrives for More Users

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Jelly Bean update has arrived for more users today and those operating the stylus-enhanced tablet in the United Kingdom, Spain and several Nordic countries should see the update roll out in the near future if it hasn’t rolled out already.

First noticed by Android Police, the roll out for the GT-N8000 version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 has continued into several more regions after it initially began rolling out to Galaxy Note 10.1 owners in Germany earlier this month. The new countries reportedly receiving the update today include the United Kingdom, Spain and “Nordic countries” which should mean Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 Jelly Bean update is rolling out to more users.

Those Galaxy Note 10.1 owners who want to install the free Jelly Bean update can head into their device’s Settings, then to About and then Check for the update. If it’s available, and it likely will be, there will be a prompt asking to download and install the software. The update is fairly massive, checking in at around 300MB, so Galaxy Note 10.1 owners will want to remain patient while the firmware downloads and installs itself.

Owners who don’t wish to wait can install the software manually though we suggest, for those that are not adept, waiting for the official update to roll out.

While this is great news for Galaxy Note 10.1 owners in these regions, this should also mean that roll outs in other regions that have yet to see the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, including the United States, might be seeing the update roll out in the near future.

The update brings all of the features contained in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean including a super smooth user interface, upgraded Browser, Google App drawer, more Camera app features, better Face Unlock and more. Jelly Bean is a massive upgrade over Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and those with the Galaxy Note 10.1 would be smart to install it.

It should also bring the Premium Suite that Samsung showed off earlier this month which includes improved applications for the device’s S-Pen stylus amongst other features.
