If you are feeling a bit frustrated over the lack of official software updates for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, this latest rumor should put a smile on your face. We’re hearing that the smartphone may be getting an update to Android 4.0.5 over the next few weeks, but will it include GSM users as well as LTE users?
Some Galaxy Nexus owners are currently on Android 4.0.4 at the moment, but an apparent ‘Android insider’ has dished the dirt on the next update which is set to become available officially in April. According to the Twitter account of ‘Black Man X’ (yes, seriously), the update will bring data stability fixes as well as a bug fix for the irritating audio reboot issue.
We know a lot of you are not happy on the official support that the device has received from Samsung following on from launch, so hopefully Android 4.0.5 will bring some welcome changes and it will be the start of frequent support for a device which is meant to be the company’s bread and butter at the moment. On the other hand, there seems to be a lot of support for the Galaxy Note and no so much for the Galaxy Nexus. Let’s hope that the rest of the year will see a change to this trend.
Going back to the GSM Galaxy Nexus, some users are still stuck on Android 4.0.2, let alone Android 4.0.4. Samsung really needs to start showing some love to both versions of the device, and starting rolling out these updates on a global scale. These are exactly the tactics which lead people to the rooting scene, so we would like to see Android 4.0.5 become available for the GSM variant as well.
If you own a Galaxy Nexus, let us know your thoughts on the update situation so far. Are you happy with the way Samsung are rolling out the updates or not? Alternatively, if you have any problems on Android 4.0.4 which still haven’t been addressed, let us know what they are below.
