Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Arrives on Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S OTA

The landscape homescreen orientation from Nexus 7 was not included

Google has started to push out the over-the-air Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean software update to both Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S handsets out there.

For the time being, however, the OS upgrade is being delivered only to those who own a GSM-based flavor of one of these smartphones, Engadget notes.

The CDMA versions of the newest Google phones are expected to receive the update at a later date, yet no specific info on when that might happen has been provided as of yet.

Unfortunately, it appears that Google did not include the landscape homescreen orientation feature in this build, although it did make it available for the owners of a Nexus 7 tablet PC.

Other than that, the new platform release is said to arrive on devices with various bug fixes and performance enhancements, as well as with the possibility to expand notifications using a single finger.
