Galaxy Note II Now Receiving Android 4.1.2 Update


Samsung’s been busy preparing Android 4.1.2 updates lately; we just saw an early ROM leak for the company’s Galaxy Note late last month. While the original Note has yet to see that update officially launch, owners of its successor can now start enjoying Android 4.1.2 themselves, with news coming in that the update’s distribution has begun for some international versions of the Galaxy Note II.

Both the regular international Galaxy Note II, model GT-N7100, and the LTE version, model GT-N7105, are seeing Android 4.1.2 updates arrive. Samsung lists a number of changes present in the update, which include some new TouchWiz features. Android 4.1.2 on its own delivers new one-finger notification gesture controls, and Samsung continues to improve notifications by adding its own customization options; you can disable the brightness slider, for instance.

Samsung also claims that the update will deliver improved browser performance, and there are new controls for disabling the split-screen Multi Window View mode. You can also look for some aesthetic changes, like a status bar recoloring and and new ink effect on the phone’s lockscreen. Samsung’s keyboard gets a tweak of its own, adding swipe input.

So far, updates have been spotted arriving in Poland and Sweden, but expect the update to spread to other nations shortly.
