Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean

Google recently revealed through the official Nexus Google+ page, that the Android Jelly Bean update for HSPA+ Samsung Galaxy Nexus devices goes live starting today. The new v4.1 firmware brings in various enhancements for a fluid and smooth experience as well as fresh features including Google Now and the redesigned Voice Search.

The smartphone in question is the flagship Android handset from Google and Samsung which was the first to launch with the ICS OS as well. The device employs a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED Contour curved glass display on the outside, while a 1.2GHz dual core processor and 1GB of RAM are fitted within. The HSPA+ variant is also incorporated with 16GB of built in storage and a 1750mAh battery.

“The roll-out of Android 4.1, Jelly Bean, begins today, starting with Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ devices. Jelly Bean makes everything feel fast, fluid, and smooth. Notifications are expandable and actionable, widgets are magical and the keyboard is smarter and more accurate. If you’ve got a Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ device, you will receive a prompt alerting you to the update over the next several days,” reads a post on the official Nexus Google+ page.

Devices in line for the update include other version of the Galaxy Nexus, the Nexus S and the Motorola Xoom. For refresher’s sake, the new platform doesn’t officially support Adobe Flash. So those who access Flash-based content on a daily basis should reconsider before upgrading their firmware.
