Moto-Droid-4 (1)

OK, we’ll admit it. Just like many of you, we too were rather skeptical about seeing Jelly Bean making it to the Motorola Droid 4 so soon, even as we reported last week that Moto was inviting willing owners of the device for a soak test.

For once, it looks like Moto and Verizon are proving the naysayers wrong, as they’re prepping the release of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the slider phone.

The new 98.72.18.XT894 firmware for the Droid 4 hasn’t been rolled out yet, but the supporting documents are already up on Big Red’s website, where it’s been hinted to come soon. As is usually the case, you can expect the update to come via OTA.

Alongside fresh Jelly Bean features like expanded notifications, Voice Search, and Google Now, it will contain enhancements that should help improve the device’s reliability, voice and data connectivity, and more. The update will also remove Sling and MOG from the handset.

Can’t wait to make the jump to Jelly Bean? Sound off in the comments below.
