The Galaxy S III isn’t the only device getting new software features. Samsung (005930) confirmed on its website that the original Galaxy Note will be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which should mean it’ll run faster thanks to UI enhancements from “Project Butter.” Samsung-specific features including multi-window    view for true multitasking, pop-up apps, photo frame mode, enhanced S Note and Google Now will also be available in the “Premium Suite” update. Essentially, the Galaxy Note will gain many of the features already available in the Galaxy Note II. The company didn’t provide any firm details on when the update will be released, but it should be any day now.
