It looks like Samsung might be bringing another update to original Galaxy Note owners. The device may be over a year old, but that doesn't mean Samsung is going to stop supporting it with new update. It looks like the original Note is going to be updated to Android 4.1.2, which will bring some awesome new features.


The update will add TouchWiz Nature UX and the multi-window feature that is available now on the Galaxy Note II. In fact, the multi-window feature is one of the main showcase features of the Galaxy Note II. This should be quite a useful update for device owners, provided it actually comes to fruition.

These rumors first started with SamMobile, and were further shown by a video on YouTube showing a Galaxy Note with the new features running on it. Of course, this doesn't necessarily prove the existence of the update, but it doesn't look like any custom firmware we've seen for the device previously. It seems likely that Samsung would continue to support one of its flagship devices, but we can't be sure yet.

Samsung has not announced anything official regarding Android 4.1.2 coming to the Galaxy Note. SamMobile usually get these things right, but until we hear word officially from Samsung, we shall have to treat this as a rumor. As always, we will keep you posted and let you know if we hear anything more about these new features coming to the Galaxy Note.

    I wonder why SS would bother with 4.1.2 update, why not put the energy into getting a Jelly Bean 4.2 out for the original Note.

    I own a US version of the Note 2, purchased it on release day from T-Mobile. It saddens me that it only came with version 4.1.1 out of the box, with no word anywhere that we will get the 4.1.2 update anytime soon. I see it showcased with the multi-window feature as a huge selling point, yet the US versions are lacking it.
