Samsung Galaxy Note Getting Jelly Bean and Multi-Window Support


Remember when Samsung first introduced the “Premium Suite” software upgrade for the Samsung Galaxy Note? Back in spring of 2012, the upgrade included a move to Android 4.0 ICS and introduced several new TouchWiz apps. Now Samsung has officially confirmed a second “Premium Suite” upgrade is on its way in the not-too distant future.

With the next update, OG Note users will get an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, bringing Google Now and many of the other great improvements found in Jelly Bean over to the Note.

There will also be Samsung-specific features like multi-window, pop-up video/browser/note apps, paper artist, new email and S Planner apps, and easy clip.

There have been rumors floating around about the existence of this massive upgrade for a while now, but it is good to finally have firm confirmation.

When is the update coming? Samsung hasn’t let that cat out of the bag yet, though hopefully we’ll know more at CES 2013.

As typical, international markets in Europe and elsewhere will likely be the first to get the upgrade, and North America will be one of the last.

Are you looking forward to getting your hands on Jelly Bean for your Note, or are you perfectly happy with ICS right now?
