Galaxy Note II 4.1.2 update leaks

James Pearce once again told us of his love for the excellent Samsung Galaxy Note II yesterday and I must say that after my review here I pretty much share his views.

Well, it would seem that there is yet another reason to like Samsung’s monster handset as a new firmware release was leaked online yesterday bringing the device to Android version 4.1.2.

The leak, first posted over at Sammobile brings the following new features:

  • Android 4.1.2 – JZO54K
  • New Additions in Notifcation Toggles
  • Notification Panel can now be customized
  • Brightness Slider in Notification Panel Can Now Be Disabled
  • Multi-View Can now be disabled
  • Browser Is Smoother Then Before
  • Status Bar has been changed from Grey to Black
  • Continues Input in Samsung Keyboard (Like Swipe or Android 4.2 Keyboard)
  • New Ink Effect On Lockscreen
  • New Group Cast Application

There may still be some bugs in the software as it is pre-release and as such is not available from Kies however the full download and installation instructions can be found on Sammobile.
