Another good news for the ones who chose an Android device that belongs to the Nexus line-up: Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update is now available for Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S. The new firmware update debuted a couple of days ago on Google’s first tablet, Nexus 7.
Android 4.1.2 can be considered a minor update compared to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, but it is set to bring better system speeds and some bug fixes. The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S has a size of only 15.1 MB, while the same firmware update for Nexus 7 had 45 MB.
As about the smartphones belonging to the Nexus range, rumor has it that the fourth device of the series will be launched later this month. LG Nexus 4 / LG Optimus Nexus, or whatever the company will decide to name it, will reportedly be based on the hardware platform that debuted on LG Optimus G.
Therefore, on October 29th we might be able to see an LG Nexus 4 in flesh, boasting a 4.7-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1,280 x 768 pixels, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor at 1.5 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, and an 8 megapixel camera. Reports are indicating that the internal storage capacities of the LG Nexus 4 might disappoint many of you, as the next-gen Android dev phone will come with 8 GB of memory and no microSD card slot. Anyway I am recommending you to take the information with a pinch of salt, as it is the result of the rumors that hit the web lately.
Returning to the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S, you can manually check whether the update is available for your device, in case the notification didn’t pop yet. In order to do so, head to Settings > About Device > Software Update and update the device over the air.
