Sprint has today pushed out its Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the LG Optimus G. The software comes with the usual set of Jelly Bean enhancements, including Google Now and Project Butter, plus better voice search, a new and improved camera app, and lots more.
Sprint announced the update via Twitter, and published a full list of the update’s changes and improvements on its Sprint Community forums — which you can see below:
- Android 4.1.2 Jellybean
- Google Now™
- Expandable, actionable notifications
- Android Beam™ to send photos and more
- QuickTranslator application downloadable from the Application Manager
- Smoother user interface. Vsync timing across all drawing and animation done by the Android framework,
including application rendering, touch events, screen composition and display refresh; and triple buffering
in the graphics pipeline
- User-installable keyboard maps
- Ability to turn off notifications on an app specific basis
- Shortcuts and widgets can automatically be re-arranged or re-sized to allow new items to fit on home screens
- Bluetooth data transfer for Android Beam
- Improved voice search
- Improved camera app
- Android mobile version of Google Chrome replaces stock Android browser
- Ability for other launchers to add widgets from the app drawer without requiring root access
The update will be delivered over-the-air, so you should see a notification on your Optimus G in due course when it’s ready to download. If you’re impatient and you’d like to search for the update manually, you can do so from within the Settings app.
If you don’t see it straight away, don’t worry. It can take a while for upgrades like these to reach every user, but at least you know you’ll get it soon.
