At the beginning of August, whilst the Google Nexus was receiving Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in multiple regions including Australia, Sprint’s variant was not getting any signs of an imminent update and we thought it would be for the best to advise you not to expect any changes by the end of the summer.
We hope you haven’t held your breath because, by the end of August, Jelly Bean on Sprint’s Google Nexus S was still nowhere to be seen.
Fortunately though, now that we’re one week deep in September things might finally take the right turn and the update could very well be closer to us than expected. Check out the details below.
Google Nexus S 4G at Sprint: Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) Update
Here’s the skinny. Sprint has just spilled the beans and announced via their website that the long-awaited Jelly Bean update for the Google Nexus S 4G went live. That’s right, there are a few people out there who should’ve already received the update notification, but if that didn’t happen to you yet, fret not, because as with every OTA update progress is gradual and Sprint claims that in little over a week Android 4.1 should reach every Nexus S 4G smartphone out there.
Overall it’s been a fairly long journey which reminded us the fact that if you’re all about timely updates you should skip the carriers because GSM is the way to go.
As for what the update brings new to the table, I believe there’s no mystery there. Google Now, Project Butter and a whole lot of updated apps and features are coming your way.
How about you? Are you currently rocking the Android 4.1 update? Feel free to drop us a line and let us know.
Thanks Android Police for the heads-up regarding the Google Nexus S 4G Jelly Bean update.
