Samsung Canada has announced that they’ll finally be pushing out the Jelly Bean 4.1.2 update to Galaxy Note 2 devices within the next week or so. Exact availability isn’t known quite yet and will vary by carrier.

Also good news for Canadian Galaxy Note 2 owners is that Multi Window support, which allows for two apps to be open on the screen at the same time, will be included in the update. Users will also be able to use Pop Up Video in conjunction with Multi Window.

Here’s the word from Samsung Canada:

“Samsung Canada announced today the upcoming availability of the latest update for the GALAXY Note II smartphone, which offers Multi Window allowing users to interact with two separate applications simultaneously.
The OS update (Android 4.1.2) gives customers the ability to personalize and customize their smartphone experience and interact with two apps at the same time. Samsung Canada now allows GALAXY Note II customers to change app positions within the Multi Window in addition to having the capability of using Pop Up Video while using Multi Window.
Also, included in this software update is the inclusion of both simplified and traditional Chinese language support. Easily accessible from the device’s settings menu, the software can change the language for most menus and applications and also support handwriting of Chinese characters to be transposed into text.”

What do you say, eh? Any large-screen loving Canadians excited about the news?
