GOOGLE HAS ANNOUNCED that Android 4.1 is rolling out to Samsung Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ smartphones bringing a host of new features.
On Tuesday, Google revealed that the over-the-air (OTA) deployment to Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ devices will be completed within the next few days before it comes to all other Galaxy Nexus handsets.
"If you've got a Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ device, you will receive a prompt alerting you to the update over the next several days," the company posted on the Google+ Nexus page.
"Up next for Jelly Bean: all Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, Motorola Xoom and of course, Nexus 7, which will ship with Jelly Bean later this month."
However, it's unclear whether the update is appearing in the UK yet, as Samsung told The INQUIRER, "Samsung UK will confirm details regarding the Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Nexus and the Galaxy Nexus S in due course. Samsung is working hard to bring this update to customers as soon as possible."
Still, it's worth waiting for, as Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will bring many new features to the Galaxy Nexus. Chief amongst these is Google Now, a new app that aims to give users information before they even search for it.
The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will also deliver a redesigned user interface with automatically resizing widgets, improved performance, an enhanced camera application, NFC integration and a smarter built-in keypad. µ
