Android 4.1.2 rolls out to UK Nexus phones
16 Oct 2012
Just don't expect big changes for your smartphone
First the good news, Android 4.1.2 is said to be rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus S smartphones. The bad news is, of course, that the changes aren't as substantial as you might have hoped.
But let's stick to the positive line first. After early reports of a rollout of Android 4.1.2 in the US, it now seems like the software update is rolling out in the UK too. According to Pocket Lint, customers of the O2 network were first to see over the air updates, but others are now also reporting updates for both the Galaxy Nexus, as well as the Nexus S. If you have either of those phones, might be worth checking if you are good to go too.
Once in, you'll get… well, not a lot of difference on the face of it. The Android 4.1.2 update is just a slight step up from Jelly Bean (and is officially still a Jelly Bean variation), with the ability to expand notifications with one finger being the headline feature.
But under the surface, there is much more. Essentially, this is about bug fixes, which are said to deliver a much smoother performance in the operating system. If that's the case, this is well worth spending the time upgrading.
