Last week, the Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) update rolled out to the Google Nexus 4, Google Nexus 7, Google Nexus 10, and Samsung Galaxy Nexus. The update has fixed the random restart bug affecting the new Nexus device made by LG. Unfortunately, occasional crashes have been reported.
Version 4.2.1 affected users when it suddenly restarted devices without warning. Most Nexus device owners seem to be happy with Android 4.2.2, but a few reports that crashes still occur.
Android 4.2.2 rolled out to address the random restart bug that affected devices running Android 4.2.1. Aside from the bug fix, it also includes a few enhancements. One is holding down on the Wi-Fi icon on the settings menu to switch it on and off. This also works with the Bluetooth icon.
Normally, a notification is received when an update has rolled out for Nexus devices. The good thing about Nexus devices is that you don’t have to wait for manufacturers or network operators to do their testing on the updates, since Nexus device run a vanilla version of Android. If you haven’t received any notification, you can download the update from Google at this page: https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images.
It is still unknown when the update will be rolled out to non-Nexus devices.
Is Android 4.2.2 running on your Google Nexus 4, Google Nexus 7, Google Nexus 10, and Samsung Galaxy Nexus? Let us know through a comment on our Facebook page.
A photo has emerged on the internet, revealing the Samsung Galaxy Premier.
According to previous reports, the Galaxy Premier was the Galaxy Nexus’ successor due to their model numbers. The Galaxy Nexus has a model number of GT-i9250, while the Galaxy Premier has a model number of GT-i9260.
It seems, however, that this isn’t the case. It turns out that the related model numbers point more to design and hardware similarities, meaning the Galaxy Premier will not be another Nexus device.
The Galaxy Premier is mix between the Galaxy Nexus and the smaller version of Samsung’s flagship the Galaxy S3 Mini.
Like the Galaxy Nexus, it sports a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED 720p display. However, it has not been mentioned if the Premier will sport a similar curved touchscreen. It also sports a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.
The Galaxy Nexus was the first handset to run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) in its vanilla form. This means that the handset does not come with the TouchWiz UI Samsung slaps on top of Android. It was officially unveiled by Google and Samsung in October of 2011.
The Galaxy Premier, on the other hand, will have Samsung’s TouchWiz slapped on top of Android just like other handsets in the Korean tech giant’s Galaxy range. It is also expected to run the latest version of Android, which is Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean).
Samsung is yet to officially announce the Galaxy Premier. Furthermore, it is still unknown when the Korean firm plans to make the smartphone available or how much it will set you back. Judging from these specs, however, we’re expecting the Premier to enter the mid-range market just like the Galaxy S3 Mini.
Interested to know more about the Samsung Galaxy Premier? We’ll keep you posted once we know more.
A report by SamMobile suggests that the Galaxy Nexus GT-192690 will be slightly better than the original Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

The Nexus S’ successor sports a 1.2 GHz dual-core A9 processor, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.
