Launched just a year ago, Samsung Galaxy Express came with Android version 4.0 ICS. Today is definitely a good day for all owners of the device because AT&T, the well-known US network provider, has stated that the handset will get a software update to Android Jelly Bean 4.1. There is no room for worries because the carrier made the announcement completely official on its website, so you can rest assured that sooner or later you will be able to update. How to know if the update has arrived? Really simple – you will get a notification on your Galaxy, stating that the new firmware version can be downloaded and installed.
There are plenty of magnificent features that will come with the long-awaited update. Such features are the enhanced notification system, various performance improvements, Google Now, etc. The big surprise in this version is the new extra, called Easy Mode. Basically, it will include lots of widgets via which the most commonly used applications will be easily accessible. Of course, the shortcut groups will be open for customization. All this makes sense and will be marked as a handy function by all those inexperienced smartphone users.
Samsung Galaxy Express’ Jelly Bean 4.1 update will also include the so called Blocking Mode thanks to which the user will be able to set a time period during which all notifications and incoming calls will be blocked, so that you will not be bothered by anyone. Data usage calculator can also be disabled.
However, if you have Galaxy Express handset, then the notification update should come soon. Or if you don’t want to wait you can manually check for the Jelly Bean 4.1 update. It can be easily done by following the path: Menu -> Settings -> About Device -> Software Updates -> Check for Updates. Don’t forget to have your battery fully recharged and make sure the internet connection you are using is reliable!
Congratulations to Samsung for not abandoning the low- and mid-range devices and releasing updates for them as well.
