Aside from its name, some Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners, who prefer to keep things stock, probably don’t feel like they actually own Google’s 2012 flagship model. That’s because it’s been months since they were teased by an update that should have been finalized and released, well, months ago, to be completely honest. After all, one of the key selling points about owning a Nexus brand is that they’re supposed to get updates in a timely manner – without extended delays. The support side of owning Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus just doesn’t seem up to par with what users experienced with the Nexus One and Nexus S before it. In fact, the Verizon variant is still on Android 4.0.2 and hasn’t been updated since the end of 2011. Still, it appears there’s new hope just around the corner.
According to Verizon support, it looks like that mysterious wait is finally coming to an end. Samsung, Verizon and Google will finally unleash Android 4.0.4 (IMM76K) on the LTE-enabled Galaxy Nexus. It may take another week or so for the OTA update to go live, but as you can see below, the full change log is already posted.
