Samsung Galaxy Nexus was one of the first few smartphones which featured Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as its operating system.
Now, it looks like it is also going to be in the list of first few smartphones which can run Google’s latest addition to the Android family, Android v4.1 Jelly Bean.
Even with the mediocre tech specs which Samsung Galaxy Nexus offers, it was considered the best available Android smartphone in the market during its release and it was only because of the fact that while other handsets were still in queue for the ICS update, Galaxy Nexus came with ICS right out of the box.
When Jelly Bean was being announced, Google confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will get ICS rollout before the end of July but it’s just mid July right now and the Jelly Bean rollout has already begun.
After the Jelly Bean update, your Samsung Galaxy Nexus should have JRO03C as its build number which is coincidentally also the same version of the operating system that is featured in the Google Nexus 7 Tablets. Other thing also worth noticing is that after getting the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean for Samsung Galaxy Nexus, there is still no noticeable change in the Google Search app and it still returns local search results. However, the only downside of this update is that Adobe Flash Player will now not be available from the Google Play store.
In addition to the above features, Samsung Galaxy Nexus will also feature the goodness with which Jelly Bean comes with like Google Now, Project Butter, improved homescreen, keyboard, notifications and camera app.
