Do you own a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 from AT&T and have been patiently waiting for the multi-window update? Now you just have to wait one more day as AT&T plans on releasing the update on December 27th (tomorrow).
I have some sad news for those of you in the UK who happened to splurge on a brand new Galaxy Note II smartphone. While we expected devices outside Korea to feature that awesome and coveted multi-window multitasking feature, it appears that some of the international models released in the UK do not feature the customized multi-window multitasking feature.
We previously reported that some Samsung Galaxy Note II’s didn’t have the advertised multi-window support, but an update that is rolling out today will fix that. This will allow Galaxy Note II owners to split the 5.5″ screen in half and run two android apps at the same time. The original Galaxy Note had a similar feature, but it was limited to only Samsung apps.
It’s no secret the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note II is going to be one heck of a phone. In addition to the quad-core power and S Pen, it’s the multitasking that’s noteworthy on the device. No, we’re not talking about the traditional multitasking found in most Android devices— we’re talking about Sammy’s special variation of multitasking.
"If your international Samsung Galaxy note 2 comes with version N7100XXALIE, you will come to the disappointing fact that the multi-window feature is unavailable. On the other hand, if you are running firmware version N7100XXALIH, as many people are, the feature should be working as you would expect.
The Samsung Galaxy Note series has just gotten a huge update with not one, but two new devices: the Note 4 that everyone expected and the surprise in the form of the Galaxy Note Edge, a smartphone with a screen that wraps around one of its sides. The latter will certainly get all the eye-balls, as this new curved display actually adds to the functionality.
