Samsung to Update the OG Galaxy Note Straight to 4.1.2; Bring TouchWiz Nature UX With It

November 5, 2012 - Written By Tom Dawson

There’s nothing really all that new with manufacturers updating a device scheduled for an update to the latest revision but, it’s certainly nice to see it happen. With the Original Galaxy Note, Samsung looks like it’s going to do just that, updating the phablet to 4.1.2 instead of updating to 4.1.1, this is hardly surprising however, what does seem to be a little surprising to us is that it seems Samsung are bringing its latest version of TouchWiz – found on the Note II and the Galaxy S III – with it.

In the video below – it’s near 20 mins long – you can see that there’s a new software build shown off and within it are elements of TouchWiz’s Nature UX. The very same TouchWiz that caused a bit of a stir with its new features earlier in the year, when it launched with the Galaxy S III. We’re not sure whether or not the YouTube video is real but the TouchWiz Nature UX seems to be running smoothly enough to suggest that it is after all, you can say what you will about Samsung but, they never release a laggy phone UI. It’s interesting to see such a thing in action as I’m not sure why Samsung would bring their latest UI down to a phone that isn’t really on sale anymore and one that they want people to upgrade from, to the Note II. It makes a lot of sense from a support standpoint though as taking care of your customers – no matter what device they’re carrying – is one way to make them stick with you.
