Samsung has started rolling out the Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread update for its phone-cum-tablet hybrid device – the Galaxy Note. For the unnoted, the Note comes with a massive 5.3-inch screen with 720p HD resolution, an even bigger battery – 2500mAh, a blazing fast 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP camera and an ARM Mali-400MP GPU.
The update is being rolled out in quite a few regions of the world including India. The new firmware updateis not being rolled out via OTA. Instead, users need to use Samsung’s KIES software to update their Note to Android 2.3.6.
The Android 2.3.6 update for the Note does not bring any major changes, but does fix a number of bugs including the random reboots and lags in certain areas of the phone. Quite a few Note owners have also reported an improvement in the overall performance, stability and battery life of the handset.
Samsung has already confirmed that the company will be updating the Galaxy Note to Ice Cream Sandwich. Galaxy Note owners should get the Ice Cream Sandwich update soon after the company releases the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy S II.
