Samsung mobiles usually roll out software updates for their phones later than the others. But this time Samsung is all set to change that and it is now clear that the company will be rolling out the Google Android version 4.0 Ice cream sandwich update for Samsung Galaxy Note pretty soon. Some other notable features will also be made available along with the update.
Samsung Galaxy Note currently runs on android version 2.3.5 Gingerbread. So update to version 4.0 will be a major jump to it.
One of the features added in the Note includes S Note, which lets you combine sketches and notes along with the available digital content and this helps you to create very unique contents. You can use this feature to make presentations and take up contents without any hassle. There are preloaded templates in the device for diary entries, minutes of the meeting etc.
Another notable feature in the S Note is Formula Match and Shape Match feature that lets you scribble down roughly a geometric shape and the device would associate the shape with the most identical mathematical shape and correct it to give a flawless output. Also the formulas that are scribbled down will be solved by the application.
There is also an option to draw tables or add in grids and additional information very easily. If you want to search for info while scribbling down just use the knowledge search engine present in the phone.
Other applications include My Story, which helps you make digital cards that can be shared via other users like with friends and family. Special levels of the Angry Birds game will be incorporated along with the update. All this along with the visual overhaul brought about by Ice cream sandwich would give the Galaxy Note an entirely different feel and look.
Samsung has revealed last year itself that Samsung Galaxy range of device will be getting ICS update in the near future. Samsung Galaxy SII has already got the update. Now finally the update is in place for Galaxy Note and will be rolled out soon.
The delay in the release of the ICS update for Note was not clear then but now it seems like the delay was because of the fact that the update will come along with a series of other premium features. This will definitely give at an edge compared to other android phones in the market.
