Galaxy Note II firmware update brings split-screen multitasking
Samsung has released a firmware update for the Galaxy Note II, which allows the split-screen multitasking feature. Multi-View enhances the look and the multitasking capabilities of the Galaxy Note II, letting the users run two apps on the screen simultaneously.
We had already seen this split-screen feature in Galaxy Note Phablet (although this version worked only with the preloaded Samsung apps). On the other hand, the update on the Galaxy Note II will work with Samsung apps as well as Google Apps – Gmail, YouTube, Chrome and Talk. No other applications are supported for the minute, but expected is that it will change quickly when the developers will update their apps to support this feature.
Samsung will start the shipping of Galaxy Note II with Android Jelly Bean version, powered by a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display.
