The Samsung Galaxy Nexus of Verizon and Sprint will be the first devices to receive the Jelly Bean Android 4.1 update.

Google announced that the Android 4.1 update will be rolled out to the HSPA+ models of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which is being sold through the online store of the company. In addition to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, a number of other devices may also receive the latest variant of the Android OS.

Among the devices that the Google specifically indicated that will receive the Android 4.1 update were the Motorola Xoom Tablet and the Nexus S. The Google Nexus 7 tablet will feature the Jelly Bean Android 4.1 out of the box.

Google had indicated that all Galaxy Nexus units will receive the Android 4.1 update, which would include the variants offered by Verizon and Sprint. This is welcome news for owners of the devices as some may have thought that their devices will be receiving the update at a much later date since the first update was only released after a number of months ince it became available in the market.

The Android 4.1 update was initially unveiled during the I/O event of Google last month and it will reportedly offer some enhancements to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus units being offered by Verizon and Sprint. A number of new features will be offered by the Android 4.1 update including a predictive keyboard that facilitates typing, new widgets, and offline Voice Typing.

In addition to these features, the Android 4.1 update will also bring the Google Now tool, faster user interface, an enhanced Voice Search and redesigned notifications.
