Google may not have explicitly stated when Android 4.3 Jelly Bean will be introduced to the Verizon Galaxy Nexus though it stands confirmed the update is well in the pipeline for a future release. The Google developer page which includes the binaries of the Android 4.3 update for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus is a dead giveaway of it.
Meanwhile, Google has announced the arrival of the arrival of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean version and has also mentioned the devices that are to be the immediate beneficiaries if the latest Android iteration. This includes the old Nexus 7, Nexus 4, Nexus 10 as well as the previously launched flagship device, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which was released in 2011 December. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus had started out with Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 and it is really nice for the device to be provided with a fresh lease of life. However, it is the unlocked model of the Galaxy Nexus that might benefit from Android 4.3 update earlier.
However Google has made no confirmation regarding the update for the carrier versions of Google Nexus including the same for Sprint as well as Verizon. Thanks to the binaries that got listed though, one can at least conclude that the Verizon Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.3 is going to be a reality sometime in the future. Verizon usually follows a very strict certification process for all software updates it makes available and is usually among the last to release the updates. So committing to any time frame could be a waste of time here though the months of August or September can well be used as a benchmark.
One can expect the update to come with all features of the Android version 4.3 including OpenGL and Bluetooth LE. The update is also expected to include bug fixes that has been bothering users so far while also ensure better performance, particularly for the gaming enthusiasts given the amount of effort that has gone into enhancing graphics performance of the new Android version.
