We’ve heard a great deal about Samsung and its process of rolling out the Jelly Bean update on the Galaxy S3, but not everyone owns an SGS3 and there are many other handsets and brands out there that are still waiting for Android 4.1.
For example, the HTC One line-up is still running on ICS and we’re expecting the Taiwanese manufacturer to drop the Jelly Bean update on the One X by the end of October, and now it seems that Motorola is joining the party as well.
We’ve reported that the long-awaited Ice Cream Sandwich update is getting ready to land on numerous Moto devices, including the Atrix 2 (which already received it) and on the Motorola Droid Bionic, but this time around we’re going to talk about Jelly Bean and the Motorola Droid RAZR / RAZR MAXX.
Motorola Droid RAZR, RAZR MAXX Jelly Bean (Android 4.1)
Indeed folks, those of you who happen to own the Droid RAZR or the beefed-up MAXX variant should be happy to find out that the manufacturer intends on launching Android 4.1 on your device.
The good news comes straight from the horse’s mouth as Motorola has recently updated its software update page in order to better reflect the manufacturer’s plans. Although no roll-out date or timeframe has been given, we’re glad to at least have confirmation that Jelly Bean will indeed arrive on the previous Droid RAZR line-up.
Now, I know that some of you are a bit skeptical when it comes to Motorola’s ways of updating its devices, and if you own one of their Android-powered smartphones, chances are that you’ve already experienced some update delays before. However, let’s not forget that we’re talking about the “new” Motorola now, and that after Google has taken over and assigned new leadership, things have moved forward at a faster pace and we’ve been kept in the loop with both good and bad news.
That being said, the Jelly Bean update is coming on the Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX, so stick around and we’ll definitely keep you up to date as soon as we find out more about it. Are you excited?
Thanks Android Central for the heads-up regarding the Motorola Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX Jelly Bean update.
