Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Update For Verizon LG Spectrum 2 Will Arrive Soon

LG Spectrum 2

The LG Spectrum 2 is a mid-range smartphone that has been available at Verizon since October 2012. Even though the device is not quite among the popular ones, there is good news for its owners as they won’t have to wait much longer for the Jelly Bean treatment. The mobile operator has announced that will soon update the handset to build number VS93021B, the upgrade including Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, according to Droid Life.

The software upgrade will bring a lot of bug fixes and enhancements developed by Verizon to the LG Spectrum 2, as well as the standard Android Jelly Bean features like Google Now integration, Project Butter, enhanced notification system, and others.

The Spectrum 2 specific improvements that come directly from the carrier consist of Bluetooth optimizations, the extraction of various pre-loaded widgets such as Power Control, Social+, and Finance, and the users of the Spectrum 2 will be able to back up their contacts when switching a SIM. The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update also come with a small improvements to the Weather application and widget.

While an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is always great news no matter what device it’s for, we still don’t know when the software will be rolled out by Verizon as the mobile network has not offered any official details about the matter. However, the carrier usually provides all the information a few days before it pushes the update. Even though Verizon has not started releasing the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update yet, you can still check for it if you want by heading to Settings > About Phone > Software Updates > Check For Updates.

Also, the carrier is typically rolling out firmware updates gradually, so in case you are not lucky enough to receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update among the first Spectrum 2 owners, then it could take a few weeks until it arrives, so be patient.

      The new jellybean update is fantastic. It makes the spectrum 2 seem like a whole new phone. I mean everything is much more fluid now, and all the lag and force closing has been fixed.

        It seems almost like a whole new phone with all the changes. The two that really made me happy were the auto rotation on the home screen (i dont know why) and the keyboard, i cant tell you how many times i hit the microphone button on accident.

        I agree….updated mine last Saturday, and everything works much more fluidly. I am hoping it fixes the biweeky lock-ups of the device. I had to reset the phone every other week to free up locked apps. Here’s to hoping!
