Back before smartphone fans in the US ever got their hands on Samsung’s Galaxy Note II, we heard that the international edition of the phone was shipping without one of its more interesting features, the split-screen mode official known as Multi Window View. It wasn’t long before we saw Samsung come through with an update to add that mode back in, and at the time were hopeful that it was ready far enough in advance for the Note II’s State-side release to see those models launch with fully-intact feature sets. Sadly, that didn’t come to pass, but for Sprint users, at least, Multi Window View is finally arriving today, thanks to a new OTA update already heading out.
Multi Window View is clearly the big addition here, but it’s not arriving alone. Other changes include the option to have incoming text messages register as an audible beep when you’re in the middle of a voice call, as well as better handling for outgoing email when there’s no data signal present, and some finer control options over GPS settings.
System software L900VPALJC should be hitting most Galaxy Note II Sprint users within the next five days.
