Confirmed: Jelly Bean Coming To Droid RAZR & Droid RAZR MAXX In Q1 2013


Motorola has confirmed that its Android 4.1.2 upgrade for the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX will begin its official rollout during the first quarter of 2013. The software first made an appearance on a small number of handsets back in late December, but Motorola quickly ended its rollout without explanation. Now it won’t be long before it’s moving again.

Motorola announced the news via a comment to a post it made on Facebook touting Jelly Bean’s features on the Droid RAZR M. Specifically, new notification feature that groups all notifications from the same apps together.

The company, which is now owned by Google, didn’t provide any specifics for the update, so we can’t tell you exactly when it will drop. What we do know is, it’ll be some time during the first quarter, so you should see it by the end of March:

On Dec. 24, some DROID RAZR & DROID RAZR MAXX by Motorola owners may have received a notification to upgrade their phones to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). We expect the full Androidâ„¢ 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade to take place for all DROID RAZR & DROID RAZR MAXX owners in Q1 of 2013.

When it does arrive, we’ll be sure to let you know it’s ready for download.
