Android 4.1, JellyBean Update Schedule Released for LG Smartphones

An Android 4.1, JellyBean update schedule has been made available by LG.

The company issued a press release this morning that showed what devices would be first to receive the software update. The first of these will be the LG Optimus LTE 2, which will receive it in November.

The LG Optimus G will be next to receive and update, which will be available in December of this year.

The Optimus Vu and Vu 2 are scheduled to get it during the first quarter of 2013.

The Galaxy Nexus Android 4.1.2, JellyBean update should arrive before the end of this month.

Google released the update for the Nexus 7 tablet last week and the Galaxy Nexus smartphone- along with the Nexus S and Motorola Xoom- are next devices scheduled to receive it.

The first of these will be the international version of the Galaxy Nexus, which will receive the same changes and performance improvements as the Nexus 7. The update should be available to Verizon users shortly after it launches on the international model.

Google rolled out the Android 4.1.2 update for the Nexus 7 earlier this month and also released screenshots displaying the new software running on the device.

Android 4.1.2 brings the rotation ability to the homescreen and is expected to improve performance significantly from Android 4.1.1. It also has a smoother user interface, fixes various bugs, makes device functions more stable, and features new versions of the Google Play store, Google Play Music, and Google Play Magazines.

Google could also be releasing a $99 Nexus tablet in the near future, according to a recent report.

NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shym stated that the device will enter production in December this week.

This $99 version of the wildly popular tablet was first mentioned in DigiTimes. However, Asus, the company that is expected to manufacture the device, has denied those claims, so this rumor should be taken with a grain of salt.
