Sprint has announced in its forums that an update to Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean is going out to the Galaxy Nexus starting on Jan. 30. So, not only is that confirmed, but the OTA has begun for Nexus warriors on the Now Network.
The update brings the newest flavor of Jelly Bean and all that entails, including Photospheres, Daydream, lockscreen widgets and more.
The release comes about two and a half months after the initial launch of Jelly Bean 4.2
As recompense for the delay, tweakers at least got one extra nice treat: Samsung has also released the newest kernel for the Sprint Galaxy Nexus today.
