The non-takju/yakju Samsung Galaxy Nexus devices are quite late when it comes to receiving the latest Android roll outs and until last week, they were still stuck with Ice Cream Sandwich, months after the second Jelly Bean version has been released. However, the good news is that folks in Canada can now experience the perks of the Android 4.2.1 as some have already reported that they have received the updates on various carriers.
Android 4.2.1 is the first Jelly Bean ‘edition'. The latest one came out only in February and although it is the better version, Galaxy Nexus owners can still enjoy improved features and additional applications with the 4.2.1, than if they were still using the ICS. Also, at least they can be thankful that the next roll-out is just around the corner and that is not such a bad thing.
Samsung started rolling out Android 4.3 update for the Galaxy S III last month, but had to remove the update from its servers due to some unknown issues.
According to Sammobile, Samsung has resumed the Android 4.3 update roll out for the Galaxy S III and hopefully has fixed all of the major issues issues of previous firmwares.
