Will Sprint's Samsung GALAXY Nexus and Google Nexus S 4G get Android 4.1 on Thursday?
About a week and a half ago, we wondered why the CDMA version of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus had not yet been updated to Android 4.1. It looks like we have good news, at least for Sprint's customers with the device. A reliable source for Android Central says that as soon as tomorrow, Android 4.1 will be available for both the Sprint variant of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus and the Google Nexus S 4G.

According to a letter that is supposedly going out to Sprint's Business Salesforce, the software version for the Samsung GALAXY Nexus will be FH05, and JRO03R for the Google Nexus S, to be even more exact. The software will be pushed to the appropriate model by Google. While there is nothing you need to do to speed things along, if you own either phone, you can watch and wait for the notification that the update has arrived.

And that leaves Big Red customers who have been waiting for Android 4.1 on their Samsung GALAXY Nexus as well. We would expect the update to reach the Verizon version of the phone soon, but we also have to take into account Verizon's legendary penchant for testing updates until they bleed.
