One of the most coveted features of the Galaxy Note II, multi-widow, should finally be making its way to us here in Canada. Samsung released the following statement today regarding the update that would include this amazing feature:
“Samsung Canada announced today the upcoming availability of the latest update for the GALAXY Note II smartphone, which offers Multi Window allowing users to interact with two separate applications simultaneously.
The OS update (Android 4.1.2) gives customers the ability to personalize and customize their smartphone experience and interact with two apps at the same time. Samsung Canada now allows GALAXY Note II customers to change app positions within the Multi Window in addition to having the capability of using Pop Up Video while using Multi Window.
Also, included in this software update is the inclusion of both simplified and traditional Chinese language support. Easily accessible from the device’s settings menu, the software can change the language for most menus and applications and also support handwriting of Chinese characters to be transposed into text.”
All I have to say is “FINALLY.” Samsung really should have included this feature at launch, especially since they constantly touted it in all their advertisements and walk through videos.
According to MobileSyrup, who reached out to Samsung regarding a timeline, the update should start rolling out next week. However, the “exact” timeline will vary by carrier.
