Latest generation of Samsung devices are already tasting the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update. Samsung is working hard to update the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note for quite some time and as it seems the Galaxy Note update is just a question of time.
Samsung has just announced the so-called Premium Suite for the original Galaxy Note N7000 (similar to the one the Galaxy S III is getting). It will be based on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and will bring the Project Butter smoothness and Google Now assistant. In addition to those, Samsung will give you plenty of new features to enjoy.
With a refreshed UI appears very similar to its successor, owners of the original Galaxy Note will be getting MultiView (the unique “two apps on the screen” feature), popup versions of the Note, Video and Browser apps, handwriting support in the S Planner and Email, enhanced S Note app, Photo Note, Paper Artist, and the addictive Easy Clip function that allows you to crop and share images and text with the stylus. Owners of Samsung’s original phablet can also start dabbling with Google Now, which will continue to pluck information from your search history, location and timezone. And a few more.
For the right moment there’s no information on when and where the update will rollout, but we guess it’s just a matter of few weeks.

Samsung has recently released the first video demonstrating the Android 4.1.2 update for the Galaxy S III that brings with it Samsung’s Premium Suite “bunsh of applications”, which are basically features that were previously exclusive to the Galaxy Note II.
Now they have released the second and what seems like the last video in the series, that showcases a few more features in this rather feature packed update.
One of the new features is called the Paper Artist app, which is now built-into the software. Another new feature is the low light mode in the camera, something that I really liked on the Galaxy Note II. This takes multiple shots and combines them to form a bright, noise-free image in low light situations and the results are often fantastic.
Other important features is Best Face mode, which takes multiple shots of people and then lets you choose the perfect facial expression from among the shots taken. Other than that there is the new Easy Mode for the homescreen and several accessibility features for the disabled.
Unfortunately, availability of the Premium Suite upgrade hasn’t been announced yet (because it’s mostly up to the carriers).
We reported a few days ago about the Android 4.1.2 update for the Galaxy S III, which brings with it Samsung’s Premium Suite features, features that are basically borrowed from the bigger Galaxy Note II.
Now Samsung has released a video that showcases some of the features in this Premium Suite upgrade. It’s a multi-part series of videos and the first of the lot has been uploaded on YouTube.
Among the features demonstrated in the video are the Page Buddy feature, which opens a new homescreen with the respective widgets when you connect an accessory, contextual image tagging, multi-view app mode, auto share shot, reader mode and Facebook lock ticker. And this is just part 1 of the series, so there’s going to be lot more to come.
