Jelly Bean ready for Verizon’s Droid RAZR HD/RAZR MAXX HD

The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Verizon’s Motorola DROID RAZR HD and Motorola DROID RAZR Maxx HD has been approved. The proof is in the support documents that have just gone live on Big Red’s site. The new software version will bring about several new features including actionable notifications, improved voice search, and Jelly Bean’s improved keyboard. You also get access to Google Now and its system of helpful, predictive cards.

The Droid RAZR handsets launched earlier this fall with Ice Cream Sandwich and both feature a similar array of hardware. The LTE devices sport a 4.7-inch display, dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, and 8MP camera. The biggest difference is the larger battery found in the RAZR MAXX HD.

An update to the latest branch of Android should give smartphone shoppers another reason to consider the handsets this holiday season. With approval from Verizon, it should only be a matter of days before Android 4.1 begins rolling out to users.

    my phones been EXTREMELY sluggish lately. i was gonna go pick up the Note 2 today but maybe ill wait to see what jelly bean does to the phone before giving up on my maxx

      It’s not an iPhone. If you install a whole bunch of crap that’s constantly running….then of course its gonna become sluggish. Don’t know if that is your case, but Ive seen many people bitching about how they “should have bought an iPhone”…and I look at their Android phone and see 250 apps installed with 3 – 4 pages worth of running apps.

      Yes, people like that SHOULD use iPhones.

    Anyone seen anything as to when the original Droid RAZR gets the Jelly Bean? I remember a doc from Moto saying it is eligible for JB.

      What about Samsung’s Verizon version of the S3? Lol

  • NIGHTSCOUT

    Bravo Motorola, definitely better release time than other phones, such as RAZR and phones before it.

    I have received my update already. Works great

    • Ryan O’Neill

      Was it a normal OTA?

      • Brill

        My mistake. It was OTA, but it wasn’t Jelly Bean.
