Coincidentally (or not), it turns out that a leaked test build of Android 4.2.2-based TouchWiz is available today on Samsung enthusiast site SamMobile.

HTC has a fairly poor track record for timely Android updates and leaving a few of their handsets stranded has done nothing for its rapport with the community. Lately, though it seems that HTC is renewing its promise to keep its devices up to date and in a timely fashion. For example, there is already an update to the One in the queue right now that will give Stateside HTC One owners improved camera, audio, battery life, and performance. Perhaps another early sign of this renewed committment is a system dump that was recently leaked: Sense 5.1 and Android 4.2.2 for the HTC Butterfly (the international counterpart to the Droid DNA).

A new leak has sprung on Vietnamese site Tinhte.vn, revealing a new mystery phone from Motorola which indicates that Google has truly begun influencing the design and software on the formerly Blur-happy company's handsets. This is apparently not the highly-anticipated but unconfirmed X phone, but is a mid-range beast with a 4-inch, 720p AMOLED display and a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor.

Yesterday morning, a build for ICS on the Motorola Atrix 4G was leaked on XDA. This comes as exciting news because last month, Motorola changed their status on the update for the Atrix from "Q3 2012" to "Will remain on Gingerbread (Android 2.3)." This saddened and enraged many owners of the device, and rightfully so. The device wasn't even a year old when Ice Cream Sandwich launched. Now, Atrix owners can flash this leak and get a taste of what is hopefully coming.

The reference was quickly removed by Google, but not before the writer was able to get a screen shot. It has been anticipated that Jelly Bean would be Android 4.1 instead of Android 5.0.

According to leaked screen shots published on Droid Life, HTC Thunderbolt Owners are slated to get a software update on May 10th. Unfortunately, for Thunderbolt owners, this update was not listed with the leaked screen shots which show the Android devices which are receiving an Android 4.0 – Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) update. This probably means that this update is a final version of the Gingerbread maintenance update, which was leaked last week on Android Police.
