Original Samsung Galaxy Note to get Jelly Bean update

Samsung Galaxy Note Jelly Bean

Owners of the original Samsung Galaxy Note are not being left behind as Samsung is purported working on a Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the device as well. The new firmware has been leaked with screenshots of the Note running on Jelly Bean with the nature inspired TouchWiz.

Apparently the new update will also bring a host of Galaxy Note II features such as Multi-View and even Air-View. Obviously we would expect some shortcomings as the original Note’s S-Pen is a notch down compared with the new S-Pen on the Note II. With half the amount of RAM (Note: 1GB, Note II: 2GB), performance might take a hit with the new features running. No roll out dates we’re mentioned but this is certainly good news for Galaxy Note users.

Head after the break for a video of a Galaxy Note running on the Jelly Bean firmware.

Watch the multi-view in action at the 9:30 minute mark.

u no

this not offical


@SoyaCincau So if we update a galaxy note to this it will get the exact same UI as GS3 and GN2? If it does then I'll get this instead of a Gn2.


    Almost similar, just lacking in a few features like AirView.

    Already using it for three days, extremely smooth and really makes my 8 month old Note feel like a totally new phone.


      Bro, I'm using Galaxy Note too. How to update?

Dear Soyacincau

Can this Jelly bean up date applicable to samsung note AP unit?


Still wait n wait……


January is gone… Where jelly bean!!!!!!


Initialy they said Note1 will get the J.Bean update by end of 2012.
Now, we are at Feb 2013.
Samsung need to improve their attitude.
Dont always look for money.
Please look at customer satisfiction!


I think HTC is much more better.
My fren bought HTC Increadible, that time was Froyo.
later, he get g.bread, then after that he also get ICS.
HTC users get many updates and very fast and stable.
