Here’s big news for all those who own either a Motorola Droid RAZR or a Droid RAZR Maxx, and looking ahead to the current generation Android refresh.
Per reports, both the Android-based smartphones from Motorola – Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR Maxx – are currently set to receive the highly anticipated Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update. The new refresh has been planned for all the users owing either of the devices and subscribed to Verizon.
As planned both Droid RAZR (launched in Nov. 2011) and Droid RAZR Maxx (launched in Jan. 2012) are set to get the Android Jelly Bean pretty soon, and by pretty soon the company, per its official site, means this quarter. The important thing to be noted here is that this quarter means before the end of March.
“Motorola recently revamped its Android software update timeline site, which was earlier just a long table with device listings and expected software rollout schedules. Now, you can sort by region, carrier, and device, to find out when you’re particular device will be getting an upgrade easily, without having to scroll through a long list. You can now also sign up to receive email notifications about when your device will receive a software update,” Android Authority writes.
Alongside the site’s re-design, some update information has also been altered. While earlier it was expected that the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR Maxx would be upgraded to Jelly Bean at some point, there is a confirmation now that the update for both devices will be arriving in the first quarter of 2013, which means that it will be available by the end of March.
However, it is to be noted that this will only happen provided Motorola sticks to the schedule it has mentioned on the site. The dates, as seen earlier, are often changed at the last moment.
“As part of our commitment to deliver the best of smartphone technology, we plan to roll out Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to a number of our devices first offered in 2011 or later. Though we are working hard to deliver that upgrade, not all of our devices will receive it. In the United States, we have created a program for owners of qualifying devices that will not receive Jelly Bean. We are offering a $100 rebate when those eligible trade up to a new Motorola smartphone,” the company states.
