A few days ago we told you that not all Galaxy Note 2 units that are already in stores come with the multi-windows feature available on Samsung’s 2012 Note devices. However, we suspected that a future firmware update will bring the feature to the second-generation phablet and it looks like European Galaxy Note 2 buyers already have access to such features.
Sam Mobile has already posted up the NL100XXALJ1 firmware update that’s available to download for various regions including Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom.
While we have no idea what else is included in this update, xda-developers member irenic reveals that the new firmware does indeed support multi-windows.
Of course, if your Galaxy Note 2 already has multi-window enabled, then you probably shouldn’t be that excited to hear there’s already a firmware out in the wild for the device.
In case you’re not familiar with the feature, then you’ll have to know it’s characteristic (at least for now) to new Note devices such as the Galaxy Note 10.1 and the Galaxy Note 2. Thanks to it, users will be able to experience a computer-like environment on these devices, as they would be able to have two apps open simultaneously and move between them with ease. However, not all Android apps support the feature (at least for now).
Have you received the NL100XXALJ1 update for you Galaxy Note 2? Is multi-windows finally available?
