Android 5.1.1 is now available for Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and LTE Nexus 7

Android Lollipop2

For a few weeks, the latest version of Android Lollipop (5.1.1) was only available on a few WiFi-only Nexus tablets, like the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10. Nexus fans who had cellular-enabled devices, including phones, were left out in the cold – until now.

Yesterday, Google began posting factory images for Android 5.1.1 for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 by LG, and the LTE-enabled Nexus 7 tablet by ASUS. OTA updates have also started rolling out for these devices, but these typically take several weeks to reach everyone.

What this means, though, is that the only device that still doesn’t have Android 5.1.1 is the Nexus 6 by Motorola.

This will likely change soon, though. We’ve already reported that Des Smith from T-Mobile expects an update to allow WiFi calling on the Nexus 6 to be ready by the end of this week, and it’s very likely that this could be the very same 5.1.1 update that hasn’t reached the Nexus 6 yet. Hopefully, we’ll know soon enough.

To get your hands on those other factory images, though, check out the source link below.
