Google Details Android 4.1 with Official Jelly Bean Changelog
Even if you watched the big announcement of Jelly Bean at this year’s Google I/O conference, there was a ton of details about Android 4.1 and it was a bit overwhelming for the every day person to take in. For that matter, there was even a bunch of stuff we didn’t hear about in the initial keynote, simply because there wasn’t enough time to cover it all.
Our friends from Android Police have spotted the official changelog from the latest version of Android and all of its sugary Jelly Bean awesomeness. If you thought this update was just a minor bump, saying you were wrong would be an understatement. Not only is it the fastest version of Android to date, but there’s a whole slew of other enhancements and additions that are sure to please.
Android 4.1, Jelly Bean, is the fastest and smoothest version of Android yet. Jelly Bean improves on the simplicity and beauty of Android 4.0, and introduces a new Google search experience on Android.
- Everything in Jelly Bean feels fast, fluid, and smooth. Moving between home screens and switching between apps is effortless, like turning pages in a book.
- Jelly Bean features improved performance throughout the system, including faster orientation changes, faster responses when switching between recent apps, and smoother and more consistent rendering across the system through vsync and triple buffering.
- Jelly Bean has more reactive and uniform touch responses, and makes your device even more responsive by boosting your device’s CPU instantly when you touch the screen, and turns it down when you don’t need it to improve battery life.
