Two days ago, we told you that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in Canada will get its Jelly Bean treat on February 6. Guess what? That day is finally here. Right on schedule – Samsung is now rolling out the new firmware to the device.

It’s quite early in the day still, but we’re hearing reports from many Galaxy Note 2 owners saying that they have received and installed the Android 4.1.2 update. According to Sam Mobile, the update is live for customers of Bell, Rogers, Telus, and SaskTel. It’s possible that more carriers will be added to the list soon.

In addition to the standard Jelly Bean goodies, features that you can expect to see from the JZO54K firmware include multi-window support, simplified and traditional Chinese language support, a customizable notification panel, new ink effect on lockscreen, Swype-style keyboard, and more.

Don’t forget to leave a comment below if you’ve received the Android 4.1.2 update on your Galaxy Note 2.

    Downloading right now. It should tell me what it is before downloading and give me the choice.

  • Wrecktacular

    Got it on Sasktel as soon as I turned my phone on this morning

  • Crossed

    Downloading the update now.

    My only concern is battery life. Some reports suggest a 10% drop in usage. If this is true I will reconsider installing this update.

  • Note 2 owner

    the update has made scrolling text messages really laggy. and my photo live wallpaper transitions have also become slow. anyone else have this problem? im on bell.

  • Fawaz

    Will it be available for the middle east?
    What about LTE ?
