We’re excited to share the news that starting June 21, customers with a Pantech Flex will be able to download the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update.
The Android Jelly Bean upgrade, available over the air, will make all current functions even faster, smoother and smarter while adding core Android 4.1 features to the already feature-rich Pantech Flex smartphone. New Flex Jelly Bean feature improvements include: Google Now, which will allow Flex users to automatically receive relevant information when they need it based on their interests, activities and habits, including weather, sports, shopping, restaurant reservations, airline and hotel itineraries, package tracking, upcoming events and more; Google Voice search activation system provides personal results based on your location and AT&T Drive Mode, an app designed to help prevent texting while driving. Other useful improvements include an expandable and actionable Notification Bar which allows for the easier return of calls, sending and scanning multiple emails and sharing photos directly from your notification panel. Additionally, widgets now resize automatically on their own when they are too big.
The Jelly Bean update brings accessibility improvements too. It adds support for accessibility plug-ins to enable external Braille input and output devices via USB, as well as Bluetooth and Gesture modes for visually impaired users to touch and swipe gestures in combination with speech output.
In addition to its dual user experience options, the Pantech Flex weighs only 4.6 ounces and has a slim design that makes it easy to slip into a pocket or purse. Flex features a full touch 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display for a vibrant picture and a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor. The intelligent Pantech SwiftKey keyboard technology makes typing a breeze – it minimizes key strokes by learning a user’s natural language for more accurate word predictions and corrections. Flex also features an eight-megapixel rear facing camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities and a two-megapixel front facing camera.
If you are a Pantech Flex customer, you will receive a text message alerting you that the update is available for download. Just follow the instructions and you’re all set!
