We've received a screenshot from Verizon's systems, showing an OTA in the works for the Galaxy Nexus. According to our tipster, the IMM76Q build is still Ice Cream Sandwich, but looks to have a newer baseband and software version. Any other changes would be pure speculation, but we expect them to be bug fixes and enhancements.
If the IMM76Q tag looks familiar, that's because it's been rumored for about a month. A lone user at XDA reported seeing the update prompt, and users in the Verizon Galaxy Nexus forums say they've been told by Samsung and Verizon that it will address the signal drop issues that plague some users in certain areas.
We know that everyone is champing at the bit to get Jelly Bean on their Verizon Galaxy Nexus, but we're not too surprised at this news. It makes sense for Big Red to get their ducks in a row and address radio issues before they push out a new platform version, potentially full of newer bugs. We'll all keep our eyes and ears open, and hope the update makes headway against the connection issues.
