Back in September, Samsung announced a new ruggedized mid-ranger for AT&T: the Galaxy Rugby Pro. Now, that phone you probably don't remember is getting Jelly Bean. It's pretty weird.

The update, which bumps this rough-and-tumble handset up to Android 4.1, brings many good things for the device, like Google Now and Project Butter, but it also includes some other enhancements and fixes:

  • Camera enhancements: New live camera and camcorder filters offer a range of camera effects, pause and resume while recording a video
  • Pop Up Play update: Easily resize or pause the Pop Up Play picture-in-picture video window.
  • Easy mode: A simplified user experience option for first time smartphone users.
  • Blocking mode: Disable incoming calls, notifications, alarms, and LED indicators for a designated period of time.
  • Improved usability: Multiple keyboard options with the addition of the Swype keyboard.

What to expect after the update

  • Bluetooth: Paired Bluetooth devices will be removed.  Please pair your device after the update by clicking here.
  • Acces Point Name (APN) reconfiguration: User created or custom APN's will be erased, and has to be reconfigured after the update.  For more information on custom APN's, please contact your internal IT department.

The update should be rolling out OTA right now, but it's also available via Kies if you prefer that.
