AT&T updates the Pantech Flex to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
Launched in September last year with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich on board, AT&T’s Pantech Flex is officially getting an update to Android 4.1.2.
AT&T has confirmed that the update is being rolled out over the air starting today, June 21. Android 4.1 brings many new features and improvements, including an enhanced Notifications Bar, Google Now, and so on.
The Flex isn’t a high-end device, currently costing $0.99 on contract. Its features include a 4.3 inch qHD Super AMOLED display, LTE connectivity, 2MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording, dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support. Now that it can get Jelly Bean, the handset is definitely not a bad choice at that price.
Speaking of Jelly Bean and AT&T, today the carrier has started selling the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active ($199.99 on contract). This, however, runs the newer 4.2.2 Jelly Bean – which will probably be also available for Pantech’s Flex at some point.
