We have already seen in several leaks and various devices that Google was cooking something. As well, it is of Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean), and has been officially announced by the engineer in Chief Jean-Baptiste Queru.

This version in particular, we’ve seen appear briefly in some logs or alleged Nexus devices, directly follows Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean), cataloguing as a minor update. It is the compilation number JZO54K, and we can find it in the Android Open Source Project under the name android-4.1. 2_r1 and with a size of 31.3MB.

It is not yet clear what changes brings with it this new version of Android, though we will update as soon as information is available. Queru words were as follows:

“ We are publishing Android 4.1.2 today, which is one minor of the main 4.1.1 update.

Note for owners of the Nexus 7: Please update to 4.1.2 at the first opportunity. Future variants of the hardware will have one minor change in one of the components (power management chip) that will not be compatible with 4.1.1.

The build number is JZO54K, and the name is android-4.1. 2_r1.
