The Sprint Samsung Galaxy Nexus Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update will roll out sometime today with Sprint itself confirming the update for arrival while offering very few details about the Android 4.3 update itself. The roll out means that the Verizon Galaxy Nexus Android 4.3 update could be coming as well though, there is still no sign of it.
Today, Google is supposed to unleash the Nexus 5 and the Android 4.4 KitKat update upon the world. However, it appears that there will also be a big time Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update roll out as well as the Sprint Galaxy Nexus, one of the Galaxy Nexus variants in the United States, has seen its update confirmed by its carrier.
Sprint confirmed the Galaxy Nexus Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for arrival today, saying that the software will roll out and that it will take the device from Android 4.2 to Android 4.3. Other than that, the update is still unknown as a change log hasn’t emerged and we haven’t seen the update roll out just yet. Sprint says that the roll out will be done at random and that it could take up to 21 days to complete.
We should, at the very least, see all of the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean features arrive with the software and it’s possible that we could see some fixes and enhancements as well. Android 4.2 Jelly Bean was a buggy piece of software and Galaxy Nexus owners of all shapes and sizes have been dealing with issues since its release.
The release of the Sprint Galaxy Nexus means that it will beat the Verizon Galaxy Nexus to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The Verizon Galaxy Nexus Android 4.3 update remains in limbo though the arrival of the Sprint Galaxy Nexus means that there is a good chance that the device could get Android 4.3 down the road. Sprint has beaten the Verizon Galaxy Nexus to Android updates before.
Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners have been dealing with an assortment of issues since the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update and are hopeful that the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update, if there is one, shores those issues up.
