The Android 4.1 update may potentially hit the handset before year’s end making this great news for potential users.
In addition to getting great features like Google Now – a recently leaked software build suggests that Samsung’s OG phablet may also be receiving some of the same key features as the current Galaxy Note II. Below you will find a video that reveals what may be in the works by the Korean tech giant.
