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.
