Here is some good news for the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note loyal users. The Jelly Bean update is coming as soon as early January.

As indicated by the leaked test ROM, both devices will skip the initial Jelly Bean 4.1.1 release and move straight to the 4.1.2.

The update, in addition to all the Jelly Bean goodies we showed you in our Galaxy S III Jelly Bean review, will also bring some of the Note II features to the two devices.

Canadian carrier Rogers officially confirmed The JB 4.1.2 updates will be hitting the S II LTE and Note LTE versions in late January and given that unlocked models always get new firmwares before carrier-locked ones, early January rollout seems like a safe bet.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy S III users are also expecting the 4.1.2 update availability to expand beyond Poland and Germany sometime around Christmas.

The Galaxy Note is one lucky phablet. Not only did it get an official update to Jelly Bean, which is still rare enough, but it is also about to get a new major update, bringing the cool Multi-View feature from the Note II.

If you are impatient, you don’t even have to wait any longer to get some of the Multi-View action on your Galaxy Note, as a test firmware with build number N7000XXLSA is now available for download.

The update comes courtesy of SamMobile and is based on Android 4.1.2. Sadly, not all of the S-Pen features are implemented yet, as Samsung has yet to pour them into its Jelly Bean source code.

And unlike the Jelly Bean ROM that leaked at the beginning of November, this one is the real deal coming straight from Samsung’s R&D labs. In order to install the update, you need to flash it with Odin and that’s pretty much it. Here is the changelog of the test firmware, as reported by SamMobile. Keep in mind that this is a pre-release firmware and some bugs are to be expected.

  • Buttery Smooth Performance & Great Stability (Thanks to Project Butter)
