Some unexpected but welcome Jelly Bean updates making news this morning as the LG Optimus L9 and Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G are receiving Android 4.1.2. The standard fare of Jelly Bean enhancements are onboard, most notable of course being the inclusion of Google Now and a revamped notification system. Both updates begin today, April 22nd and in the case of the LG Optimus L9 is an Over-The-Air update only. The Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G can get the Android 4.1.2 via OTA update or by using Samsung’s Kies desktop software. The update for the L9 clocks in at around 350MB, with the Relay 4G punching in around 411MB so you might want to give these a go on Wi-Fi or rock that unlimited plan.
Let’s hope the HTC One S Jelly Bean update arrives in the not-so-distant future as all these “lesser” phones receiving updates is a punch below the belt for owners. Come on T-Mobile/HTC, show One S owners the Jelly Bean goods.
