The Galaxy Nexus and Google Nexus 7 tablet are scheduled to receive the Android 4.2, JellyBean update by mid-November.

This software upgrade will also come pre-installed on many devices included in Google's new Nexus line-up such as the Nexus 5, 7 and 10.

The update brings some new features to Android products including improvements to the keyboard, camera and notifications.

The Google Play store lists that these new Nexus devices will launch on Nov. 13.

Android 4.2 was supposed to be unveiled at a Google media event in NYC on Monday that ended up being canceled due to Hurricane Sandy.

Google instead announced the Nexus 10 and the rest of its new releases on the internet that day.

The company decided to spill the beans on the Nexus 10 that is already making headlines for its extremely impressive display and powerful processor.

"The newest tablet from Google and Samsung's joint efforts, Nexus 10, is a powerful device that marries Samsung's best-in-class hardware, the latest version of Android 4.2, JellyBean, and the best of Google," wrote the company in the press release.

"With the world's highest resolution tablet display, all new multi-user support, immersive HD content and the best Google apps- Nexus 10 has something for everyone," continued Google.

Specifications on the Nexus 10 also include a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, a 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.9-megapixel front camera, Bluetooth 3.0, and Wi-Fi only connectivity.

The device comes in two memory capacities including 16GB and 32GB versions.

Google will begin selling the Nexus 10 in the Google Play store starting at $399 for the 16GB model, and $499 for the 32GB version on Nov. 13 in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, and Canada.
