Verizon’s mid-range offering, the Samsung Galaxy Stellar, is getting updated to Android 4.1 Jellybean in a very soon time, as the carrier states on its support page.
Verizon was kind enough to provide more details regarding the software update, instead of just a couple of lines of text. The update is 403,6MB, and includes all of the Jellybean novelties we are used to see. Here’s the full log of changes Verizon has outed:
Just the right information at just the right time. Get today’s weather before you start your day, know how much traffic to expect
before you leave for work and when the next train will arrive as you’re standing on the platform. Cards appear throughout the day
automatically. Google Now is provided when selecting search on home screen.
Take action directly from the notifications panel. Send emails, return calls, share photos and more. Notifications are expandable and you
can scan multiple emails, see event details or full images and more. Added brightness bar and label for clear button have been added.
