When it comes to pushing Jelly Bean to devices, Samsung wants us to know that it hasn't forgotten about any of its current-gen devices. Take today's update for example – do you remember the Galaxy Victory? Didn't think so. Still, Samsung and Sprint are sending the 4.1.2 update over-the-air right now.

The update brings several features to the less-than-memorable handset:

Jelly Bean offers users stunning graphical capabilities with expanded feature functionality, including:

  • Google Now™
  • Expandable, actionable notifications
  • Android Beam™ now lets you send photos and more.
  • Widgets work like magic as you place widgets on the screen, everything else automatically moves to make room; when they're too big, widgets resize on their own.

The update also added new capabilities to Galaxy Victory, including:

  • Swype®
  • Notifications now display full text of incoming SMS messages, and when you receive an MMS you can view full photo in the notification
  • Pinch notifications to expand or collapse them
  • Notifications from the same application are grouped together, and the first item is automatically expanded
  • Conversational text-to-speech voice in U.S. English
  • Voice typing without an Internet connection
  • Manage/create Google+ Events from device
  • Zagat ratings and reviews built into Google Maps™
  • Indoor walking directions integrated into Google Maps

If you happen to own this phone, you should be able to head into Settings > About Phone > System updates and grab it. Enjoy.

    (if this could be considered the Galaxy Stellar's near twin...)

    One could almost say Verizon's version got JB first, for once.
