Galaxy Nexus Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Update Roll-Out Today
When Google demoed the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at San Fransisco two weeks ago, i was wondering how long will it take to make all Nexus device running on such OS. Based on my experience, Google is always take their time when it come to OS update. Nexus S need to wait until four months before able to receive the Ice Cream Sandwich treat. Luckily, Google’s performance is improved this time. They’ve just release the Jelly Bean update for Galaxy Nexus!
I have no idea if your 4G LTE edition of Galaxy Nexus (mine is the SIM-free version) already receive the update as well, but i’ve manage to grab the 149.9MB update by this morning. I admit that it takes few time before the download process to finish, so i suggest you hook up your handset to a decent WiFi connection first. Again, if you’re happen to own the Sprint’s or Verizon’s edition of Galaxy Nexus, you might have to wait a little bit longer since they need to inspect the update first.
The notification that i receive this morning clearly stated that ” This software will upgrade your Galaxy Nexus to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which improve performance and responsiveness system wide”.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is packed with tons of amazing features, including the Project Butter graphics engine and Google Now app. I must say that all those function are now work really well on my Galaxy Nexus. Not to mention that the new notification system really help me to manage all the tweets, comments, and tag that i receive.
Aside from Galaxy Nexus, Google also said that Jelly Bean will come to Nexus S and Motorola Xoom soon. I have no idea when it will happen but i believe that it won’t take too long. Until that happen, you might want to stay here in my web page. I might come back with new update guys!
