Updated: No Jelly Bean on Boost Mobile’s ZTE Warp Sequent, LG Venice and Galaxy Rush
It seems that users can expect update to Jelly Bean on Boost Mobile’s additional Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich handsets, except for just Samsung Galaxy S II. The Samsung Galaxy S II on Boost and Virgin Mobile received Jelly Bean update at the beginning of this month. Prepaid Phone News noticed that feature lists of ZTE Warp Sequent, LG Venice and Samsung Galaxy Rush on the Boost Mobile’s website include a line:
“Android 4.0 or higher
Loaded with OS Ice Cream Sandwich, you can enjoy the upgrade to Jelly Bean, the newest and most advance Android OS available.”
When will these three Boost’s Android handsets receive Jelly Bean update, it’s not said. However, as a part of a “Go Green, Save Green” promotion that discounts all UL Environment-certified phones up to $55, all three phones are discounted, as well. The ZTE Warp Sequent is $40 off so now it’s available for $109.99 (regular price $149.99). The LG Venice is $30 off, now is $149.99 (regular price $179.99). The Samsung Galaxy Rush is also $30 off and can be purchased for $99.99 instead of a regular $129.99.
The offer is good online only, through April 30.
Update: There will be no upgrade to Jelly Bean for any of the three Boost Mobile’s phones mentioned above. Apparently, it was all a mistake noticed by Boost only when a Prepaid Phone News reader asked them about when upgrades could be expected. Boost Mobile have corrected the feature lists of ZTE Warp Sequent, LG Venice and Samsung Galaxy Rush since so now it’s clear that “The phones are not upgradable to Android 4.2.”
