Android Jellybean a “minor update,” coming to Samsung Galaxy Nexus
June 21st, 2012, 10:03 P.M. EDT — Google’s own Play Store confirms that the next version of Android is coming to 2011 Samsung Galaxy Nexus, just a “4.1″ and not the widely expected “Android 5.0.”
So it looks like the Android Jellybean update is just a “minor update” based on its number, 4.1 compared to Android Ice Cream Sandwich’s Android 4.0.
Multiple reports today have confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus unlocked model available in the Google Play Store is flaunting the promise that “it will be the first smartphone to run Android Jellybean 4.1.”
Apparently, Google is set to launch “something” at the upcoming Google I/O event in California this month, and rumor has it that the search giant will unveil its first tablet PC with the Nexus brand reportedly manufactured by Asustek.
It is possible that the Nexus tablet will be the first tablet that will run Android Jellybean. No word yet from Google on the next Android version’s launch date, and also its new features.
