Samsung Galaxy Note gets Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update

Samsung has started rolling out the 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update to its Galaxy Note smartphone.

Despite being supplanted in 2012 by the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, the original Galaxy Note is still one of the most popular Android phones on the market and has been a consistently strong-selling device since launching in 2011. It boasts a sizeable user-base, making it no surprise that the South Korean tech giant is keen to furnish the Jelly Bean update and provide owners of the handset with the best possible user experience.

The roll out of the new update is believed to be gradual, meaning it will be dished out to the Note's global user base in multiple phases. Therefore, you may or may not be able to upgrade your device to Jelly Bean 4.1.2 right away, but don't worry - the update will reach you sooner or later.

When the update lands on your Galaxy Note, you'll be able to experience some of the latest and greatest Android features, including the performance and stability-boosting Project Butter, as well as other recent features like Google Now, Smart Rotation, Samsung Cloud services, Page Buddy and more.

The update will come available OTA, or you can look to download it via Samsung's Keis desktop software.
