12 July 2012 : As we all know Samsung has already Started Seeding the Official ICS v4.0.4 Updatefor International Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 last night itself. Now we'll have a look at the detailed description of all the features of this update along with the images. As a surprise the new features brought along by Android OS v4.0.4 are quite awesome, some of the important features include:
Pop up play for videos Signature unlock Several bugs n issues fixed Enhanced stability Enhanced battery life Speed bump Cool new features in the pre-existing applications And changed icons and enhanced user interface.
POP UP PLAY : Well starting with pop up play way back at the launch of Samsung Galaxy S III we saw a new feature called pop up play. This feature allows the user to play video in background (always on top) besides you are on other applications. This feature may take up battery but the main advantage is if u are watching a video and you need to text some one urgently then instead of closing the video user can just touch on the pop up play icon and you can do what u want with the video playing already even though you are in your inbox or on Facebook. if you wish to close the pop up window u can tap and hold the window it will show a (-) icon and it closes the window but if u wish to go back to full screen window all u need to is just one touch on the pop up window.

SIGNATURE LOCK : The S-Pen oriented phablet, Samsung Galaxy Note N7000/I9220 has finally got some thing which is unique and related to S-Pen that is th SIGNATURE UNLOCK feature in Settings/security/screen lock. By using this feature with the help of S-Pen one can lock his Samsung galaxy note with his own set signature. Though the process is complicated, it gives complete security as no one else would be able to sign as accurate as it was fed in the Android system. Though one has to enter the same signature thrice at the time of feeding to the system. Once it's done, phone gives alternate unlock option if the signature unlock fails i.e Pattern Unlock and PIN Unlock. This is quite an interesting feature as only the person who has set the signature can unlock via signature unlock method.
