Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Receives Android 4.1.2 Update

Joining the Galaxy S3, Samsung has started to release the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for its phablet, the Galaxy Note 2 international model.

In addition to new features integrated into Notification Toggles, users can customize the Notifications Panel, as well as being able to disable the brightness slider within the Notifications Panel.

Multi-View is another component that can be disabled thanks to the update, while the browser has been upgraded to run smoother than before. An ink effect on the lockscreen has been applied, as has a new Group Cast application.

The Status Bar is now black instead of grey and users can type on the keyboard by dragging their finger across it -- similar to how Swype or Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operates.

The full list of features introduced by Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean is as follows:

  • New Additions in Notification Toggles
  • Notification Panel can now be customized
  • Brightness Slider in Notification Panel can now be disabled
  • Multi-View can now be disabled
  • Browser runs smoother than before
  • Status Bar has been changed from Grey to Black
  • Continues input in keyboard
  • New Ink effect on Lockscreen

  • I made a fuckton of dollars selling my farst to scientists. Fart it out!
  • No real groundbreaking changes here. But it patches in some useful features! Too bad I have the first Gnote...

    Meanwhile, my Galaxy Note I runs 4.2 with all the Gnote II features. Custom roms are exactly like the stock ones: they take time. I can only thank Samsung for the unlocked bootloader in this case, makes my device last way longer than I would have thought. Especially with the quick release of the Gnote II.
