Samsung and AT&T are beginning to push the Android 4.1.2 update to the Galaxy Note on AT&T. This is the original Galaxy Note on AT&T, for those interested it’s model SGH-I717. This was Samsung’s first venture into the “Phablet” world and it did very well internationally that Samsung brought it to AT&T about 6 months later, and T-Mobile got it later on for about a week or two. The changelog for this update is rather huge and includes more than just Jelly Bean. Let’s take a look at the changelog.
