Google to introduce Android 4.1 on Galaxy Nexus?


After the world wide success of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Google’s Galaxy Nexus phone might soon get the new Android 4.1 which is code named as ‘Jelly Bean’. On June 21, the Play Store of Google displayed a message when shoppers added the Galaxy Nexus to their carts.

The message said, “The latest smartphone from Google, soon the first phone with Android 4.1 Jell…” The message was first noticed by Droid Life GigaOM and others before Google removed it.

The search engine giant is expected to announce the Android 4.1 during its Google IO developers conference next week. Along with the new operating system, Google is also expected to introduce a 7 inch Nexus tablet built by Asus that runs on the latest software.

Apart from the rumours about the new Jelly bean OS and the device which will run on it, not much has been known about its features. The search engine giant has also spoken about new Maps features for the mobile devices like the offline access and 3DFlyovers, but these features might be available for all the users and not just the Jelly Bean users. If Google is actually planning to being the new 4.1 Android Jelly Bean on its Galaxy Nexus, then it would be one much awaited device.
