    The launch of the Galaxy Note 2 might be imminent, but it seems Samsung hasn’t forgotten owners of the original Note. A new over-the-air update is going out today for the international Galaxy Note (GT-N7000), adding a whole host of new features from the Galaxy S3 and Note 2. The update, which is still based upon Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, introduces Note owners to features like Pop-up Play, a new Note 2-style 3D gallery app, lock screen and home screen enhancements and ‘S Cloud’ contact back-up, to name but a few. Overall, there are some pretty sweeping changes to the phone’s UI. The inclusion of S Cloud in particular is interesting, as this has yet to be officially unveiled, but was spotted on some of the Galaxy Note 2 demo units at IFA last week.

    The update to version XXLRQ is curretly pushing out over-the-air and through Kies to unlocked Galaxy Note devices in Germany, and we’d expect other territories and networks to follow in the weeks ahead. Some, like the U.S. LTE models, may have a little longer to wait.

    Today’s Note update is also good news for Galaxy S2 owners. It’s now likely that phone will get this latest package of software goodies too, regardless of whether Jelly Bean for the S2 ever materializes.

    If you’ve got an international Galaxy Note and have received today’s update, hit the comments and let us know how you’re getting on.

I have an unlocked international galaxy Note running ICS 4.0.4 which was an over the air update, Build IMM76D.XXLRK. However Kies is telling me "Your device does not support software upgrading via Kies". Harumph.

I have the exactly the same specs as you and I tried to update over the air, but it says there's no update available. Wut?

Nothing actually, no update.

I beleive u need to downgrade it to an official release and then use kies for updates.

How to update?

I've got it tomorrow and looks gallery style is awsum

No update in Ph yet!

You've got it tomorrow??

Download latest Kies application from Samsung's website then connect phone cable - it should tell you automatically if there's an update for your phone/company bundle. In my case there's no such a great update for my Galaxy Note (Claro, Brazil).

Received Update today in India 85MB file over the air. Thanks a lot Samsung for this update.
