Another day, another Galaxy device being updated to Android 4.3. Today's lucky recipient is the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy Note II, which is receiving an update to software version JSS15J.I605VRUEMJ9. Included with this creatively-named update is same bundle of goodies that Samsung's Premium Suite update has brought to other Galaxy devices, including support for the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, an updated version of the Multi-Window app and improvements to the Note II's camera.
But wait, there's more! Also included with this update is a newer version of the Pen Up app from the Note 3, improved Wi-Fi performance and extended battery life while using Exchange email. Finally, Verizon Note II owners will be glad to hear that the ability to move apps to the device's SD card is also supported. Verizon's full changelog for the JSS15J.I605VRUEMJ9 update is available at the bottom of this post.
So how do you go about getting all of this goodness onto your Verizon Note II and its tattooed home button? Updates typically take a few days to roll out to all users, so you can patiently watch your notification bar and wait for the new software to make its way to you, or you can check for it manually by going into Settings > About Phone > System updates. If you're lucky, you'll be treated to a tasty Jelly Bean that will help you to start your weekend off right.
Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce a software update that will improve the performance of your Samsung GALAXY Note II and also enable support for the Samsung Galaxy Gear.
