Following news of AT&T’s multi-window software upgrade rollout for users of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, U.S. Cellular has gone and done the same thing with the release of its very own “Android 4.1.4″ software update. The full changelog identifies the baseband version as R950VXALL1, and adds a number of other niceties besides the multi-window software feature.
As you may already know, the multi-window feature is a nice little perk that's available exclusively to devices in Samsung's Galaxy range of mobile devices — on select tablets and smartphones — that lets users run different apps through multiple windows all on the same screen. It's been delivered to a number of different Galaxy Note 2 variants available in the U.S., such as those from T-Mobile and Sprint. U.S. Cellular is the latest to join in on the fun.
As mentioned earlier, this software update also brings much-needed bug fixes to the Galaxy Note 2. The “Burst” mode bug in the camera app that is said to be the culprit for random black images and the faulty Search feature in the My Files app are among those that are supposed to be fixed by the update. There are also a couple of UI changes present in the update, though these are not likely to have a huge impact on the overall user experience.
Here's a copy of the full changelog:
This software update is available as an over-the-air (OTA) download, so for Galaxy Note 2 users under U.S. Cellular, all that needs to be done is to go to the Settings menu and check for the software update under About Device.
