Thus, Galaxy Note 10.1 comes with a quad core Samsung Exynos processor, especially elegant dimensions and Android OS 4.0.1 (ICS), upgradeable to Jelly Bean and completed with the TouchWiz UI.
Multi window was a showcase feature for the Note 2, allowing multiple apps to be used on a split screen at any time.
Reports from SamMobile indicate that a new firmware version, N7000XXLS3 is in testing at Samsung, and includes the Nature UX and multi window support, in addition to limited "air view" floating cursor support using the S Pen.
And today a video has surfaced from French YouTuber Jimmy Nodet, which seems to show an even newer ROM — N7000XXLS7 — in action.
The (admittedly shaky) footage shows the TouchWiz Nature UX running on an original Note, as well as fully functional multi window capabilities.
The video description claims this is an "official Android 4.1.2 update" for the international Galaxy Note.
That doesnt guarantee its legitimacy, but on the other hand the video doesnt match any custom ROM were familiar with.
Last month rumors suggested Samsung would also bring multi window to the international Galaxy S3, in an Android 4.1.2 update slated for December.
If you dont have the money for a tablet and smartphone, then you couldnt do much better than the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
Nevertheless, until the updated software out of Samsungs internal testing circles and available for download, Note owners would be advised not to get too excited.
