Motorola RAZR i and RAZR M both now getting Jelly Bean update

Motorola has revealed that two of its latest RAZR smartphones will soon be upgrading to the coveted Jelly Bean update, with both the RAZR M and the Intel-powered RAZR i lined up to get Android 4.1.

Motorola’s RAZR i, with its Intel processor, will be getting Jelly Bean in phases as of right now. Motorola confirmed the news via its website, whereby it specifically notes the UK as the destination for the update – great news for Brits.

Jelly Bean will be rolled out in phases, with the usual process of SIM-free handsets first, followed by network-specific phones expected to be the order.

RAZR M, now with added Jelly Bean

Additionally, the RAZR M will be upgraded to Android 4.1.2 shortly. The update has just been approved by various mobile networks around the world, and so Moto is looking to start seeding the software to phones in stages from now.

Both phones will get the same software, with Google’s Project Butter being a key feature that is designed to make overall use of the phones much faster and smoother. You’ll also get access to Google Now voice and text search, as well as a host of improvements and additions from Moto themselves.

How do I update?

Thankfully the process on both phones is the same, so whether you’ve got a RAZR i or a RAZR M, you can follow these steps to check for the update.

Open Settings > Scroll to About Phone and tap > Tap System Updates

You’ll need to make sure your phone is charged up to at least 50% and connected to Wi-Fi before installing the update, but once it’s found you’ll need to just follow the steps on screen to get Jelly Bean installed.

At present our SIM-free RAZR i and RAZR M are both yet to get the update here in the UK, but we’ll keep checking.
