According to a recent posting on DroidLife.com, the Google Play Store jumped the gun on announcing Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). 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.
The screen shot shows the Google Play Store referencing the GSM Galaxy Nexus as the First phone to receive Android 4.1. It has been rumored that Google was looking to announce Jelly Bean at Google IO, which begins next week. Should an announcement occur, Android enthusiasts will get their first official look at the new features included in Android 4.1.
An additional screen shot shows a reworked search bar, similar to the search bar included in the Google IO app. While a leaked reference to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) is exciting, device manufacturers and carriers need to move quicker with updating existing devices to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
What are your thoughts on the Galaxy Nexus being the first phone to receive Android 4.1? Please leave your comments in the section below
