Bell Galaxy Nexus Android 4.2 update coming on March 8

Good news, Bell Galaxy nexus owners, your Android 4.2 Jelly Bean upgrade is set to hit your device in the coming days, if a leaked screenshot is to be believed.

Mobile Syrup has gotten its hands on an internal Bell document that lists March 8 as the upgrade date for the Galaxy Nexus. From the looks of it, this “old” Nexus handset version will only be upgraded to Android 4.2.0 and not Android 4.2.2, which is Google’s latest Jelly Bean release.

Considering that Android 4.2 has been launched in mid-November last year, we shouldn’t really be surprised that Bell’s Galaxy Nexus is not exactly going to receive the latest Jelly Bean build. But better get Android 4.2 late than never, right?


For a complete Android 4.2 changelog check out our previous coverage. If you’re wondering what’s different between Android 4.2 and Android 4.1, both Jelly Bean versions, then you should see our thorough comparison.

    I upgraded to 4.2.1 and now the phone won’t connect to any Bluetooth device. Also, it refused to update apps on Play…had to remove account. Damn this sucks.

    I tried to manually install 4.2.2 but install process aborts.
