Oh, hi there, Samsung Galaxy Reverb. Haven’t seen you around the water cooler in a while. Yeah, I’m doing good too. So what’s up? You’ve got an Android 4.1 update? Shut the front door.
The Galaxy Reverb is a budget phone on a budget network, the kind that we generally expect to be released, promptly forgotten, and never, ever updated to a later version of Android. But lo and behold, several Virgin Mobile customers on both Reddit and Android Forums are reporting that their phones are receiving over-the-air updates to Jelly Bean 4.1.2. One poster stated that he’d spoken with a Virgin representative who said the the OTA was scheduled for May 22nd, but at least a few seem to have been updated early.
