Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus LTE is a full four updates behind other Nexus devices, that’s no secret. What we would love to find out, though, is when they plan on changing that status. And if they do, are we going to skip past all of the previous updates and jump right to Android 4.2.2 or will we be stuck back at 4.2.1 or something earlier?
We know one thing, an update is indeed on the way. In a response to a frustrated DL reader on Twitter, Verizon’s official support account has confirmed that there is no release date, “but it will be soon.” We should point out that the VZW support page for the G-Nex also has a “Coming soon!” tag attached, however, that could have been there for some time.
What we’re confused about, is why they think the update is coming from Samsung, but that’s a story for another day. All of us fully understand that once Big Red approves the update, the file will come directly from Google, just as it has since day one.
If it makes the situation seem any brighter, keep in mind that Verizon has approved a handful of updates to a variety of devices over the last week. Maybe there is hope on the horizon.
