With the imminent release of the new version of Google's Android comes the update of the different smartphones powered by the popular software.
The new Android 4.1, Jelly Bean, is claimed to be the fastest and smoothest version of Android yet. Google said that it improves the simplicity and beauty of the previous Android and introduces a new Google search experience on Android.
According to its website, "Jelly Bean features improved performance throughout the system, including faster orientation changes, faster responses when switching between recent apps, and smoother and more consistent rendering across the system through vsync and triple buffering."
"Moreover, Jelly Bean has more reactive and uniform touch responses, and makes your device even more responsive by boosting your device's CPU instantly when you touch the screen, and turns it down when you don't need it to improve battery life."
Below is the complete list of smartphones that will get the new Android v.4.1 Jelly Bean.
