The upgrade is pushed OTA (over the air), in stages
It's been almost two months since Samsung has quietly kicked off the deployment of the Jelly Bean upgrade for Galaxy Note 10.1 in Europe.We reported back in early November that the South Korean handset maker had started the rollout of the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update to all Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 units in Germany.
Obviously, we assumed the update would slowly be released in other countries as well, but it looks like it took Samsung no less than two months to be able to offer the upgrade in the UK.
All in all, the folks over at AndroidOS have just been tipped on the availability of Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy Note 10.1 in the UK.
Moreover, the rollout of the update started in India as well, though we're still waiting for confirmations from Galaxy Note 10.1 owners who received the Jelly Bean upgrade.
Oddly enough, the previous update was about 300MB in size, whereas the current Jelly Bean update is 480MB in size.
It is also worth mentioning that Galaxy Note 10.1 owners can download and upgrade to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean via Samsung Kies desktop software.
Additionally, the update can also be downloaded OTA (over the air), but we do not recommend it due to the size of the package.
Word is Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean upgrade is pushed through in stages, which means not all Galaxy Note 10.1 owners will receive it at the same time.
Keep in mind that this update contains important improvements to browser, gallery and camera applications, as well as to notifications.
After upgrading, users will be able to take advantage of all Project Butter improvements, new apps and services, including Google Now and enhanced keyboard with offline voice typing support.
As with all Android updates, we expect Jelly Bean for Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 to be rolled out in other countries as well, in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more info on the matter.
