AT&T Samsung Galaxy Express Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update now rolling out
AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy Express was launched last year running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. In the meantime, an international version of the same device has gone on sale with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean running the show. Now, the Galaxy Express sold by AT&T has finally caught up.
That’s because that carrier has announced that its version of the Galaxy Express is getting updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean starting today. This will be an over-the-air rollout, so your phone will notify you when it’s time to download and install the update. If you don’t want to wait for that to happen, just go to Settings > About Device > Software Update > Check for Updates and hope for the best. You might just get lucky.
With this update come improved notifications, which are now both grouped and expandable. There’s also Google Now, plus some Samsung-specific additions such as Easy Mode (which is apparently the perfect fit for first-time smartphone users, simplifying the overall look and feel and providing a targeted experience) and Blocking Mode (which lets you disable all incoming notifications for a period of time – while you’re sleeping, for example).
AT&T promises more Jelly Bean updates in the coming months, so let’s hope it delivers.
