Updated manual hints looming Samsung Galaxy Note Jelly Bean release

The last couple of months have been very demanding for smartphone manufacturer Samsung, what with many of its devices having yet to receive an upgrade to the latest Android version, Jelly Bean. While there is no official statement as to when the first Galaxy Note will get its own update, owners of this popular phablet can expect a forthcoming rollout, as hinted by the recently released Jelly Bean manual.

Among the new content that has been added to the manual is a tutorial on how to use Google Now, the intelligent personal assistant feature that first appeared in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The support page of Samsung UK website that hosts the January manual also labels it “JellyBean.”

Another indication of an impending update is the software update schedule by Canadian carrier TELUS. Even though software testing is still marked pending, the carrier expects to release the update in February 2013.
