BLU Win JR also grabs Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 update

Besides the BLU Win HD picking up 8.1.1 (build 14203, which came out last month for Preview users), its smaller and cheaper sibling the Win JR is also getting the same update.

Heading into Settings > Phone Update and owners of the dual-SIM budget Windows Phone will be greeted with an impending OS update.

Much like the Win HD, the Win JR does not appear to get an accompanying firmware upgrade, so this is just meat and potatoes as an OS update. Still, for those who bought this phone, you are most likely not in the Preview for Developers program, so this official update is indeed welcomed.

We are still updating our phone, so besides Live Folders and some other 8.1.1 enhancements, we will have to wait to see what is new.

Thanks, Cristhian C., for the tip!
