There has been many a Samsung device that has been waiting in the wings to make the jump onto Android Jelly Bean territory. The original Galaxy Note is one such. The update too is being rolled out in phases though the same from Telus has been in the works for quite some time now. Many had expected the update will arrive at Telus in April though the schedule was later revised to May. However, we are already into that part of the year and if you have been wondering the whereabouts of the Jelly Bean update, well here it is.
Telus has made it known they are already in the process of rolling out the Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Note device. Notifications are being sent out though the deployment is being carried out in stages. What this means is that it is only a few batch of Galaxy Note users that are being provided the update and not all at one go. Meanwhile, it would be a good idea to check for yourself if you are among the lucky few right now even if you haven’t received any official notification so far. For this, tap on the Menu option followed by Settings, About Device and then tapping on the Check the Android Version option. Tap on the download option if the Jelly Bean files are there.
As for the goodies to having the latest Android Jelly Bean version on board, there are quite a few. First and foremost is the performance enhancement that Jelly Bean brings along which can be attributed to the outcome of the Project Butter based implementations that Google has incorporated in Jelly Bean. Google Now which can be considered to be Google’s answer to Apple’s personal assistant app, Siri is another cool feature to look forward to in Jelly Bean. These apart, there are also many new features that Samsung had added to the Jelly Bean package and is definitely worth checking out.
