Google Nexus 4 update sees Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean launched

Just weeks after launch, the first Google Nexus 4 update is now available with Android Jelly Bean 4.2.1 being rolled out to fix a selection of bugs with the quad-core handset.

Hot on the heels of the recent November 13 Google Nexus 4 UK release date, the high-end Android handset with the budget price tag is set for its first patch with Google confirming it has started rolling out a 1.1MB update to fix a selection of bugs with the handset’s Android 4.2 OS.

Fixing an issue that saw the month of December missing from the handset’s People app meaning events and anniversaries could not be recorded for the twelfth month, the new Android 4.2.1 update is reported by ITProPortal to have been rolled out for both the Google Nexus 4 and Google Nexus 10. Former Nexus handsets that have already made the jump to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean are also set to receive the patch.

“We discovered a bug in the Android 4.2 update, which makes it impossible to enter December events in optional fields of the People app (this bug did not affect Calendar),” a Google spokesperson stated on the Google Plus social networking site last week. “Rest assured, this will be fixed soon so that those of you with December birthdays and anniversaries won’t be forgotten by your friends and family.”

Google Nexus 4 Specs
Lining up as a direct competitor to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5, the Google Nexus 4 pairs a selection of premium innards with a welcome and wallet-friendly budget price tag. With Google Nexus 4 prices kicking off at just £239, those eager to snap up the device have the option of a 8GB storage capacity option or a larger, £279, 16GB handset.

Running a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, the Google Nexus 4 specs sheet is further bolstered by 2GB of RAM and integrated NFC connectivity options.

With a 2,100mAh Lithium polymer batter helping run the show, the Google Nexus 4 screen sees a 4.7-inch WXGA IPS offering given the nod with a 1280 x 768p resolution and 320ppi image density helping ensuring brilliant picture quality. Corning Gorilla Glass 2 is also incorporated to help the handset stand up to everyday knocks and bumps.

Wrapping this high-end features list within a 9.1mm thick, 139g in weight body, the Google Nexus 4 is finished off with an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera and a second 1.3-megapixel snapper around front.
