Sprint Galaxy Nexus receiving Android 4.2.1 update now

galaxynexus

Sprint is currently pushing out Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean updates to the Galaxy Nexus. This is happening after The Now Network issued a major update a couple of weeks ago. The new Android 4.2.1 (build JRO03U.L700GA02) brings the following improvements:

  • Redesigned camera interface and new Photosphere feature (a 360-degree panorama mode)
  • Notifications Shade accessible by swiping top screen edge downwards; swipe down with two fingers to view notifications; tap the notification to expand and act on it.
  • Lockscreen widgets to get access to certain apps without unlocking the screen; side scroll right for camera or left for other widgets (time and weather, gmail, etc.)

You can grab the latest version of Jelly Bean over the air by simply hitting Settings > About Menu, or if you don’t feel like waiting you can download the update manually from Google here. 

Let us know how the new update looks and feels on your Sprint Galaxy Nexus? Sorry, there’s still no word on an update for you Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners.
