In March this year, Samsung confirmed that its Galaxy Tab 7.7 will receive the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update and now the software update is available for the tablet.
A SamMobile report confirms that the software update, which was previously delayed due to Samsung experiencing some problems with its Exynos processor that powers the AMOLED tablet, is now available to download.
The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update to the Galaxy Tab 7.7 brings Galaxy Note 10.1-like features to the tablet along with some new features and bug fixes. The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update is also expected to bring the much-touted Multi-Window View feature, which allows users to work on two different apps simultaneously, and should definitely be included in the update.
The software update will also bring the Premium Suite feature to the Galaxy Tab 7.7, which allows Popup Note that enables users to instantly and conveniently write down directions, phone numbers and other information while on a call. Popup Note also opens intuitively when you pull out the S Pen or double-tap the screen. Popup Video and Browser allow you to watch video or browse the Web while performing other tasks.
Premium Suite also brings Photo Note/Photo Frame to the tablet, which allows you to treasure your memories with handwritten notes on the front or back of your photos. The software update brings along Easy Clip that enables users to crop an image from any screen to save or share easily. Paper Artist provides an emotional and aesthetic photo-editing experience to users. Premier Suite also includes Handwriting on S Planner/email and Enhanced S Note features.
All the new features that Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean brings along will offer a better experience to the Galaxy Tab 7.7's users.
Android 4.1.2 is available either over-the-air (OTA) or via Samsung's KIES service. The update is currently only available in Asia, but we expect the update in more countries soon.
