Verizon announces Android 4.2.2 for Galaxy Nexus
Verizon today announced that it will finally issue the 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for its Galaxy Nexus. Coming two months after Sprint did the same for its Galaxy Nexus, the Samsung handset gets the latest version of Android.
The Galaxy Nexus by Samsung will be updated to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The software will be pushed to Verizon Wireless customers in phases starting March 19.
The software includes new camera features such as photosphere to take 360 degree panoramic pictures that can easily be shared with friends. The camera app also has new tools to add filters and borders, further customizing pictures.
Additionally, an all new Gesture Keyboard is available, allowing users to slide their finger from letter to letter to type a word. Other enhancements include allowing users to place widgets on the lock screen for easier access to popular apps such as Calendar, Gmail and Clock.
Not bad, considering there’s a new flavor of Android due in around two months time.
