The Galaxy Note Android 4.1.2, JellyBean update has been released in a new firmware for test purposes only.
Screenshots of the device running the new update surfaced on YouMobile.org earlier today and display the Note running the Multi-view mode currently available on variants of the Galaxy Note 2.
The update also brings other new features and improvements to the device including Smart Stay and the Swipe keyboard.
This version that appears in the pictures is only a pre-release for test purposes as the final official upgrade is expected to roll out via Samsung KIES or OTA in the coming weeks.
The Galaxy Note 2 was release on Verizon earlier this week.
The carrier is offering the smartphone-tablet hybrid device for $299.99 with a new 2-year contract.
Customers can also purchase the device on a month to month plan for $699 total. The Galaxy Note 2 will be available in Marble White and Titanium Grey on the carrier.
Verizon's Galaxy Note 2 will feature the same specs as on other carriers, which includes a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, Android 4.1, JellyBean software, and a quad-core processor.
This will give yet another boost to the sales of the phablet that has already been flying off shelves around the globe.
Samsung reported that it has already sold 5 million Galaxy Note 2 units just 60 days after its official international launch.
This makes for another record-breaking release for the company, who enjoyed much success with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3 earlier on in the year.
The Galaxy Note 2 launched only two months ago and has already moved 5 million units worldwide.
The device features a 5.5-inch HD display and Android 4.1.1, JellyBean.
Samsung released an earlier report that stated that it sold around 3 million Galaxy Note 2 units just one month after its launch.
