Today the folks from Verizon have just confirmed another one of their budget smartphones is set to receive an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The LG Spectrum 2, which was released back in October, was just approved for the OTA update. We can expect this little mid-range phone to see it arrive shortly from Verizon and LG.

The LG Spectrum was released with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich while many were already getting Jelly Bean, but at least they’ve finally got around to updating the device to nearly the latest version of Android. It still isn’t 4.2, but at least you’ll be getting Jelly Bean. The new build brings tons of fixes aside from all the Jelly Bean treats too.

The upgrade to 4.1 for the LG Spectrum 2 will bring everything we love about Jelly Bean. Things like Google Now voice search, gesture keyboard typing, project butter for a smoother and faster user experience, and of course expandable notifications. Then LG’s added a few fixes for those experiencing issues.

The update details were confirmed by Verizon support, and states we can expect new weather and widget apps, brightness toggles and more in the notification bar, improved email, and fixed some bluetooth and audio issues to name a few. This should start arriving on handsets sometime this week or weekend, so start checking for updates and drop us a comment once you receive it. Enjoy!
