If you own the Motorola Droid Bionic smartphone, there is an indication that a new update for the device may be rolling out soon. The smartphone only received its Android 4.0 update in October of 2012. A new report indicates that the Android 4.1 update for the device on the Verizon Wireless network has been approved to rollout.

The device is apparently listed on the Motorola upgrade page as being approved. Motorola has been steadily scratching names off the upgrade list to Android 4.1 over the last several weeks. Often, when Motorola updates its official listings noting that a specific smartphone will be upgraded, the update comes not too long after.

With the Droid Bionic being scratched off the list this week, the hope is within the next few weeks Jelly Bean will begin rolling out to owners of the device. Another Verizon device was also checked off the upgrade list recently and that device was the Xoom tablet.

Droid Bionic owners have been waiting for the Android 4.1 update to land since last year. Seeing the device updated on Motorola’s official update list should get owners of the Droid Bionic cause to celebrate.

  1. I am looking forward to the update, although I expect that this will be the last official OS upgrade the Bionic will get due to it’s age.
