Samsung recently pushed out the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software update for the Galaxy S3. Now reports indicate that the company's Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet has started receiving the update in Germany.
According to a SamMobile report, users in Germany are the first to get the update from Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and a strong possibility exists that other regions in Europe would get the same soon.
"Today Samsung updated their Galaxy Note 10.1 to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean. The update is only available in Germany at the moment and downloadable through samfirmware.com," reported SamMobile.
The over-the-air (OTA) update is around 300MB and can be installed either using a Wi-Fi connection or with Kies.
"If you have the Galaxy Note 10.1 in Germany you will receive a OTA update of 300MB
Samsung will update the Galaxy Note 10.1 to PDA version N8000XXBLJ9 CSC version N8000OXABLJ9 and MODEM version N8000XXBLJ9," noted the Web site.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 was announced in February this year and sports a 10.1-inch WXGA LCD screen with 1280 x 800 pixels resolution, a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos processor, and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera.
The update is expected to bring new features like Google Now with Voice Search. According to German Website AllaboutSamsung (translated) the tablet would be able to have the same S Pen functionality as the Galaxy Note 2, once the Jelly Bean software update is installed. The device would also have improved multitasking and a faster system.
Whether Samsung will roll out the Android 4.1 update to other regions soon remains to be seen. U.S. carrier began Sprint pushing out the Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S3 in the U.S. a few days ago. However, it is anybody's guess when Samsung will roll out the software update for the Galaxy Note 10.1 in the U.S.
