The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and Note 10.1 are getting some “premium” updates from Android Jelly Bean. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) will officially roll out these updates soon.
The new updates will feature multi-window, Quick Command, and Air View. The Note 10.1 will also get extra updates for the S-Pen exclusively. The Jelly Bean update will bring a new set of updates for Samsung apps like S Voice and Smart Alert.
