Google themselves have just announced that Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean is rolling out for the international (HPSA+) Samsung Galaxy Nexus starting today. Right now the update is rolling out as we speak and as long as you don’t have the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, you can enjoy the latest and greatest from Google.

The update has already arrived on our Nexus 7 tablet a matter of minutes ago, but we are still waiting for it to arrive on our Google IO edition Galaxy Nexus phones. While we wait you can rest assured that Google themselves announced the update was rolling out today only a few minutes ago over on Google+.

This should also be arriving for all the Galaxy Nexus phones sold through the Google Play store over the past month or so, not just the original international model. Google mentions next on the list is “all Galaxy Nexus devices” so hopefully Verizon is up next. Then the Nexus S followed by the Motorola XOOM. We’ll be sure to update once we hear any additional details but for now you should probably head to settings > about phone > check for updates and enjoy the awesome new Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean with Google Now. For more information about both check out our review and videos below, or head to our Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Portal.

  1. Just got the update. Can’t say I love new grey-cyan interface over old cyan. But it works. May be even a bit faster.
    Also animation has changed itself, not only “buttering” was done here. 7/10

  2. I’m really hoping the Verizon Gnex gets updated soon. I’m getting more and more irritated with their practices, and I’m looking forward to the day I can move away from their phones and service.
