Want Android Jelly Bean First? Get Yourself a Galaxy Nexus

By Sam Gibbs on at

It seems Google's getting a bit leak happy at the moment. First big G gave us a sneak peek at what Jelly Bean will look like; now it's confirmed that Android 4.1 will be here "soon", and on the Galaxy Nexus first.

Not that we were in any doubt that the Galaxy Nexus would get the Android 4.1 nod at some point, mind you. But thanks to the Galaxy Nexus' Play Store description, Google's just confirmed that it'll be here sooner rather than later -- maybe even as early as next week -- and that there won't be any new phones launching with it before the update is pushed out to older hardware.

Of course that doesn't mean we won't see new Jelly Bean-packing hardware later this year, and we could even see the Nexus tablet running Android 4.1 next week. But if you want a nibble on a newest, tastiest variant of Android as soon as possible, the Galaxy Nexus is apparently your friend. [Google Play via Android Guys]
