The latest Jelly Bean edition of Android will soon begin rolling out to the original Galaxy Note, a leaked video on YouTube suggests.
Unearthed by SamMobile, the hands-on footage shows Android version 4.1.2 running on Sammy’s world-beating ‘phablet’, showcasing a number of UI enhancements including a new TouchWiz interface called ‘Nature UX’ and an icon for the rather natty multi-window feature right on the notifications bar.
While it looks like the real deal, it’s hard to verify whether this is a leaked ROM or one that has been ripped and ported from the Galaxy Note 2. In any case, rumours are doing the rounds that an over-the-update can be expected as early as next month.
Naturally, this will likely land on the unlocked version of the Galaxy Note first, with contract customers facing the usual wait that goes hand-in-hand with networks’ compatibility and quality assurance tests.
The Galaxy Note defied early scepticism from critics to become one Samsung’s best-selling devices, shifting more than 10 million units worldwide.
Its successor, which dropped in early October, is already on course to surpass that figure, having sold a staggering three million units within the first 37 days of release.
