ABC News is reporting that the Samsung GALAXY Nexus will be returning to the Google Play Store next week, powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Also included will be a software update that will remove the offending feature from the phone. While the Google box for searches will still be on the device, the GALAXY Nexus will no longer search the handset itself for the keyword, but instead will only search the web.
Despite the talk of a workaround by Google, Samsung says it will continue to appeal the ruling made by Judge Koh. Additionally, it is unknown whether the Android 4.1 Android OS build that will come with the new version of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus will have just the one workaround for the Unified Search patent, or if it will contain fixes to cover other complaints of patent infringements made by Apple.
