The Samsung Galaxy Nexus from Verizon Wireless might sport 4G LTE connectivity, but it has sadly been passed over in terms of software updates compared to the GSM version of the Galaxy Nexus, which in fact, remains four versions behind the most recent software update. The indignity of it all! At least we have hope that things will change for the better soon, as according to a Verizon support team member who used Twitter as the channel of communications, replied to a query, saying, “Samsung will push the update directly to your device over the air. Sorry, no release date. But, it will be soon.”
“Soon” is a very relative word, and bear in mind that the Verizon Galaxy Nexus currently runs on the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update, which remains clearly behind the Android 4.1.2, Android 4.2.1, and of course, the most recent Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Ah well, at least there is an update coming, and we are willing to settle for scraps if that is what it takes.
