After receiving the leaked Android 4.1.2 firmwares for the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy S2, it is now Galaxy Note 2’s turn to receive the long awaited update. This is still a test firmware leaked to the world wide public and offered by Sammobile, but as previous version proved it, leaked firmwares are very close to being without bugs. The official update to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for Galaxy Note 2 is expected somewhere in December/January.
