Motorola has been a very busy little bee over the past few weeks as it has released software updates for several of its devices. A few days ago the Motorola Droid RAZR and droid RAZR MAXX received the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware upgrade. However, the company didn’t want to stop there and now it’s working on a new rollout, this time being meant for another Motorola smartphone, the Droid Bionic. The Droid Bionic is an older phone developed by Motorola being launched two years ago. Even so, the owners of the device are very lucky because the manufacturer is preparing to push the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update in the following months, software that will bring the Motorola Droid Bionic the latest Android features.
Motorola has launched an update timeline website where the users can find information about the company’s future releases in terms of software and yesterday it confirmed that the Droid Bionic will receive the Jelly Bean treatment.
When the handsets was launched it was running the old Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The owners have waited a long time to have their device updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Now, the users of the Motorola Droid Bionic will have to wait a couple of months more until the smartphone gets updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
After the company pushed Android Jelly Bean updates to pretty much all its phones, the only ones left are the Droid Bionic and the tablets.
Even though the company promised that an update will be released for the Bionic, until now we had no details about when it was going ti happen. The good news is that Motorola modified its update web page, according to which the Droid Bionic will receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update in the second quarter of 2013. In other words, the upgrade should be ready until the end of June,
Previous rumors suggested that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Motorola Droid Bionic would be launched in Q1, but this period of time it’s about to end. Nevertheless, better late than never, and let’s face it, the handheld was announced at the beginning of 2011, so it’s a good thing that the company is even considering rolling up an update.
When we’ll have the exact date confirmed by Motorola, we’ll let you now.
