Samsung has just released Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean for Galaxy S III in most regions and is now working hard to deliver the next major update of Google’s platform.However, Samsung Galaxy Note II was launched back in September with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean out of the box, so it stands to reason that the next update that should be deployed is Android 4.1.2.
The South Korean handset maker is expected to bring the Galaxy Note II to Android 4.2, though we’re not sure how soon the company will be able to do so.
All in all, it appears that Samsung is hard at work to roll out the next Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy Note II.
Even though Samsung has yet to officially release this update for the Galaxy Note II, the folks over at Samsung-Updates have managed to get their hands on an official Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean build for the LTE version of the smartphone.
This build is branded for Vodafone South Africa and can be flashed on Samsung Galaxy Note II LTE devices model GT-N7105, which should be available in Europe via multiple major carriers.
We’re not sure when exactly Samsung will start rolling out the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update globally, but the latest rumors suggest that this might happen within the next few days.
The Android 4.1.2 is a minor update which was released a few months after Google officially launched Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The update brings fixes for some of the bugs reported by Nexus 7 users, as well as several performance improvements and new features.
For example, Android 4.1.2 adds lock/home screen rotation support for the Nexus 7 and one-finger gestures to expand/collapse notifications.
