Earlier today, the Motorola Droid RAZR M Jelly Bean update was reportedly approved today by Motorola and now, Verizon is confirming the good news saying that some Droid RAZR M users will be seeing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update arrive today.
Verizon confirmed the news rather swiftly after the news of Motorola’s approval was reported and it now appears that the Droid RAZR M Jelly Bean update is indeed rolling out to customers in phases starting today.
Of course, what this really means is that soak test participants are now receiving the update as well as randomly selected customers that were not part of the soak test but will be used to test the firmware anyway. It’s what Verizon does with every Android update now.
So that means that Droid RAZR M owners should see a slow Android 4.1 Jelly Bean roll out with a majority of owners not seeing the update arrive until next week. In fact, Verizon states that those who don’t wish to wait for the Over-the-Air update can try installing it manually within the next week.
The Droid RAZR M becomes the second Verizon device to be upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, following in the footsteps of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus which received its update earlier this year. The device should be followed by the Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR MAXX HD and the Samsung Galaxy S3. All signs point to those devices getting the software update this year.
As for the Droid RAZR M, its Jelly Bean update is going to be bringing not only Android 4.1 Jelly Bean but a host of bug fixes along with it that should shore up the experience for owners of the budget RAZR-branded device.
Those will come in addition to the features found in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean including Google Now, the new notifications, a better Camera app and more.
All that being said, Droid RAZR M owners should keep an eye out for the update, it may arrive as early as today and it could be a few days from now.
