Google has made available an Android 4.4.3 factory image update for the Google Nexus 7 2013 LTE. This follows after the Nexus 7 2013 Wi-Fi model got the same update in the past weeks, and with other Nexus devices already getting the Android 4.4.4 upgrade.
While anxiously waiting for Google to deliver its updates, and with little information on the release date, the internet search titan has provied a delightful surprise by recently releasing Android 4.4.3.
The mobile-enabled Nexus models oftentimes get the updates behind the Wi-Fi devices, for several reasons that are not given.
Though there is no justification given by Google as to why the updates do not come to all Nexus 7 models at once, some believe it may have something to do with binary files that have proprietorship or perhaps on the permission to release files which are post-related.
The factory image, coded KTU84L, can be used for the manual update of the Nexus 7 LTE mobile operating system. Those who want to do it now can retrieve the factory image to wipe and update their device by downloading it from the developers' site.
However, for those who are not comfortable with doing manual updates and find it too technical, it is recommended they wait for the arrival of the automatic OTA update.
As Google usually delivers the updates within a week after the arrival announcement, it may take more than that. Furthermore, there is an upcoming most recent Android Kitkat 4.4.4 update for Nexus 7 holders expected to arrive as well.
With the Android 4.4.3 update arriving, and Android 4.4.4 on the way, Nexus device owners are now a step closer to have the OS of their mobile devices completely up to date.
