Those who are still touting the original Galaxy Note are in for a surprise, as SamMobile has gotten their hands on a leaked build of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for the Galaxy Note. Keep in mind that — as usual — this is a leaked version, so it may not be up to release conditions. One of the known issues with the leak is the lack of S-Pen features. Regardless, with Android 4.1.2 leaked on the Canadian version of the Galaxy S III, the International version of the Galaxy S II and now the original Galaxy Note, I think we’re going to be seeing a massive Jelly Bean bomb in the next few months. Exciting, isn’t it?
According to SamMobile, here is some of the enhancements that you can expect on this leaked build of Jelly Bean.
- Android 4.1.2 – Build JZO54K
- Project Butter
- Multi-View (can also be disabled)
- Page Buddy
- Notification Panel can now be customized
- New Additions in Notification Panel
- Smart Rotation
- New Samsung Keyboard
- Samsung’s Cloud services
- Direct Call, Smart Stay and Pop-up Play Features
- New Widgets From the Galaxy S III
- 2 Home screen modes
- New Notifications bar
- Google Now
Now, a lot of you probably just want to know when this is going to become official. What we know right now is that earlier this year Samsung mentioned that a lot of their popular devices would be seeing the Jelly Bean upgrade come to December. On the other hand, some rumors are floating around saying that we won’t be seeing the update until early 2013. Whichever date it happens to be, we sure are close to seeing the Jelly Bean firmware update release on a lot of devices.
