It’s always satisfying to be able to inform readers about the further reach of Android operating system updates, and today it’s the turn of those in India who have the Google Nexus 4 smartphone or Nexus 7 tablet. The Nexus 4 and 7 OTA Android 5.1 Lollipop update is now rolling out for India following the arrival of the same update for the Nexus 5 earlier in the month.
It’s reported that some users of the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 (2012) WiFi in India, received 5.1 Lollipop as an over-the-air update starting last night. The update is 174.5MB in size for the Nexus 4 and 101.6MB for the Nexus 7.
