Nexus 4 starts receiving Android 5.0 Lollipop update

While Google has already released the Android Lollipop update for the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 5 devices, the update is now available for the Nexus 4 as well.


Google has started rolling out the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Nexus 4 smartphone. The update, which is being pushed Over-the-Air (OTA), has apparently reached users in India. While the rollout is still a bit slow, the update is expected to take a while to reach all the Nexus 4 users but can be manually installed.

To check if the Nexus 4 has received the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, users need to go to Settings > About device > System updates > Check Now. However, if the phone has been flashed recently, it may not show the update. The OTA update is also available for download and can be side loaded manually.
