First generation Galaxy Note to get Android 4.1 in December

First generation Galaxy Note to get Android 4.1 in December

First-generation Galaxy Note users are expected to see an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update in “late December” where it will introduce new features.  A leaked version of the upcoming firmware suggests the Galaxy Note will see the Nature UX as well as other goodies found in the Galaxy Note II.  As you will see in the video embedded below, the massive handset will also benefit from Air View (preview photos/videos by hover) as well as Multi View (two apps running next to each other). According to SamMobile, the Galaxy Note will be jumping directly to Android 4.1.2 when gets the update.

It’s worth noting that this doesn’t mean the AT&T version will see its Android 4.1.2 update at or around the same time.  While we’d like to think it shows up in late December, we must remember that the phone is at the carrier’s mercy.
