Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus

As of May 1, the share of Ice Cream Sandwich has reached 4.9% of all active Android devices, with 4.4% from those now running versions 4.0.3 and 4.0.4, while 0.5% are still running 4.0 and 4.0.2.

The numbers could’ve looked quite different if the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon hadn’t been stuck on Android 4.0.2 ever since it was launched back in December. Word has it that the long awaited update to Android 4.0.4 will finally arrive on Galaxy Nexus today.

Despite several leak builds of Android 4.0.4 for the Galaxy Nexus that have made their way out to the open, the carrier is taking it’s sweet time to announce a date for the official rolling out of update. But if you believe reports coming from several subscribers who apparently have gotten the tips from Verizon support staff, the update will start trickling down to your phone starting from 11 AM EST.

The Android 4.0.4 for Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus will reportedly bring improvements to the signal strength of the phone’s radio, smoother screen rotation, enhanced camera functions, and an overall boost of speed and performance.

Folks, better not get your hopes up until we receive confirmation from Big Red. But in any case, you might want to check your phone today for any update notifications. Think of it is a wonderful surprise if Verizon does roll out the Android 4.0.4 update today for your Galaxy Nexus. Don’t forget to share the news with the rest of our readers by commenting below.
