Galaxy S3's little brother gets over-the-air update to Android 4.1.2
U.S. Cellular has announced that the Galaxy Axiom -- its version of the Galaxy S3 Mini -- is today getting its update to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. The Axiom first launched back in November, with a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, a 4-inch WVGA display and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The upgrade to Jelly Bean should bring a performance boost to the handset thanks to Google's "Project Butter" enhancements, while also unlocking the ability to use the new Google Search app with predictive "Google Now" capabilities.
To grab the update, Galaxy Axiom owners will need to be connected to Wifi. Then it's just a case of heading to Settings > About Device > Software update.
Any Axiom owners out there? Hit the comments and let us know how you're liking the newer version of Android.
