Verizon just started pushing Android 4.1.2 to the Galaxy Note II. AT&T will start offering that same update to the original Note tomorrow, May 3rd.

Update: The word on the street is that this update is already available through Kies. Hook up and get it!


While the Android version bump is the same, however, everything else about this one is quite a bit different. Here's what you an expect post-update:

Software update includes

  • Popup note: Allows user to instantly write down directions, phone numbers, and other information while on a call.
  • Popup Video and Browser: Allows user to watch video or browse the web while performing other tasks.
  • Photo note and frame: Allows user to write down notes on the front and back of a photo.
  • Easy clip: Allows user to crop an image from any screen and save or share easily.
  • Paper artist: Provides an emotional & aesthetic photo editing experience.
  • Handwriting on S planner and email: Handwrite memos or send handwritten notes via email.
  • Enhanced S note: More effects & templates were added.

Unfortunately, this one's only going to be available via Samsung's Kies software, so be ready to tether to a computer for a while if you want to  pull it down. Sadface.
