Verizon is reportedly in the beta testing stages for an update to their LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, according to Android insider black_man_X. If things check out it could reach handsets in early April. The update, which brings the phone’s Android version to 4.0.5, is said to provide a plethora of bug fixes that will address audio reboot and data stability issues among others.
It will be the first time the Galaxy Nexus has received an update since close to its launch and will finally push its Ice Cream Sandwich build past 4.0.2, meaning the update will cover the improvements found in the 4.0.3 upgrade, as well. Google dubbed that release as the “base version of Ice Cream Sandwich.” It’s about time Verizon’s Nexus variant caught up.
The Android 4.0.5 update was outed as heading to the Nexus S this month on a roadmap released by French carrier SFR, but this is the first we are hearing of its potential arrival on the Galaxy Nexus. Around the same time reports surfaced of an Android 4.04 build for the Galaxy Nexus while a build of the software leaked for the Nexus S. It is unclear if the Nexus S is still on track to receive the Android 4.0.5 build, but Verizon users (and presumably Galaxy Nexus owners everywhere) will want to stay tuned for further developments.
