With the new iOS 6 release bringing negligible changes in terms of UI and major features, smartphone users have set their eyes upon Android’s new OS update called “Jelly Beans” which is speculated to bring a complete UI overhaul. However, a recent discovery from Google Play suggests that Android users might get disappointed.
Now why is that?, well the XDA section dedicated to Nexus phone, Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus, makes mention of the handset’s imminent software upgrade to, you guessed it, Jelly Bean. If you head on over to the Play Store and attempt to order the HSPA+ version of the Galaxy Nexus directly from Google, you’ll notice the item description states the following:
Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ – The latest smartphone from Google, soon the first phone with Android 4.1 Jell…
Update: Google has removed the extra descriptive text mentioned above from the final stage of the checkout process.
The good news however is that Galaxy Nexus would be the first device to get the shining new OS but if Jelly Beans will indeed be the version 4.1, chance for a complete UI overhaul seems to very grim. Sure there is no official word yet but still, Google mysteriously removing the description and changing the thumbnail suggests that there might be something worth it.
With the I/O conference up ahead, rumors are that the new OS would be unveiled and if the next OS version is going to be a minor change, it might just show up at the event. Lets see what happens, we’ll keep you posted.
