Android 4.1 mention leaks, suggests Google IO debut

Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ may be first with 'Jelly Bean'

Jelly Bean, or the 4.1 version of the Android mobile OS, may be arriving any day now on Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ handsets if a leak spotted by an XDA Developers forum member proves accurate. A Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ was upgraded to Android 4.1 as far back as December, though the new update would likely be more widespread. The unlocked handset from the Google Play store is said to come with Android 4.1 preloaded, leading some to hypothesize that some phones could ship with the latest software before the update is officially released to existing owners.

It's very likely that the software will be officially unveiled and released at the 2012 Google IO Developer Conference, scheduled for June 27-29 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

The page from which the leak sprung has since been modified to remove any mention of Android 4.1 or Jelly Bean. The image of the handset at checkout did show a new Google Search bar, however, that further supports the idea that Android 4.1 is preloaded on the handset.
