Is this proof that Android 4.1 is coming in the extreme near future? Is the Google Play variant of the Galaxy Nexus going to be the very first phone to get Android Jellybean 4.1? It appears that way. Right now if you head on over to the Play Store and attempt to order the HSPA+ version of the Galaxy Nexus directly from Google, you’ll notice the item description states the following:
Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ – The latest smartphone from Google, soon the first phone with Android 4.1 Jell…
Update: Google has removed the extra descriptive text mentioned above from the final stage of the checkout process.
You’ll also notice that Galaxy Nexus thumbnail image has changed, showing a completely different graphic from the the one we’ve all grown to love. The wallpaper is different, the default icons are different, and the home screen Google search widget is different.
Sure, no official word has been said on this matter at this time, but I doubt the Play Store lies.
