Verizon Wireless today said that the Samsung Galaxy Stellar will be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean beginning March 4. The update will be pushed out in phases, though it can also be downloaded manually starting Monday afternoon.
Jelly Bean includes enhancements and new features like Google Now as well as a new notification panel that displays missed calls and emails and lets users return the call or email right from the notification. A brightness bar has also been added as an easy way to adjust and dim the screen's brightness.

The race for mobile supremacy is harsh. People often find themselves realizing that their devices become "out of date" and are already not supported by their manufacturers and carriers. But with Verizon's Galaxy Stellar, apparently, this is not the case.
The Stellar, released September of last year, rolled out with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and has since been stuck and unable to update to Jelly Bean. However, Samsung and Verizon both agreed to pull their technical resources together to grant this device with a 4.1 Android Jellybean update. It may not be the latest version, but it will allow the users to experience the perks of Jelly Bean.
The update will feature Google Now, expandable notifications, Project Butter, and many other system bug fixes to the Stellar. This is an OTA and is sized around a hefty 400 MB so better do this on WiFi. For those who haven't received any notification about the update, you can always check manually if the update is already available via "System Update" on your Stellar.
