Android’s latest mobile software, dubbed Lollipop, is, if you’ll excuse the terrible pun, the word on everybody’s lips right now, but despite the numerous features having been refined and deemed ready for prime time, the typically cumbersome roll-out has since ensued. If you’re an Android user, it’s very likely that you’ll be waiting a while before you can indulge in this new version 5.0, but if you happen to be in ownership of a Nexus, then you won’t be left hanging for quite as long. Indeed, along with the earlier release of factory images for a spate of Nexus smartphones and tablets, the system image for the Nexus 4 is now in the wild, and if you’re still in possession of this antiquated handset, then you can now… wait for it… get flashing!

As with any new update to Google’s Android, many users are left in no man’s land, waiting anxiously for that OTA to appear so they can go ahead and take advantage of the new features. Such is the fragmented nature of the operating system, devices are promised a new update from the get-go, but often have to wait weeks or even months before they can actually begin using it. The antiquated LG Nexus 4 will soon begin to see the recently released Android 4.4 KitKat, and although many in ownership of the handset have already successfully sought ways to force an update, you can now do so by flashing the update by your phone’s recovery.

As soon as Android 4.4 KitKat was formally announced, it was certain that the newer Nexus devices will definitely be getting the new version of the operation system. Nexus 4, the one year old Nexus flagship that is still plenty powerful, obviously made the cut, but it didn’t get an OTA update for the latest Android version as soon as it surfaced on Nexus 5. All we kept hearing was “a few weeks” without any definitive availability date. Well, we guess it’s pretty close now, as Google has posted the factory images for Android 4.4 KitKat for the Nexus 4 on its developer portal.

Now that Google and LG have finally put to bed the rumors and confirmed the new Nexus 5 handset, we can begin to concentrate on the actual important aspects of the device. Prior to its release, the Nexus 5 was undoubtedly one of the most leaked handsets that we have seen with images, purported technical specs and even video glimpses of the device appearing on an almost daily basis. The unofficial unveiling of the hardware didn’t bring any surprises as the leaks had already told us pretty much everything that we need to know, except for one thing – how the device will perform in the real world and especially how it stacks up when compared against its predecessors in the Nexus range.

Despite being relatively old when compared to many devices currently on the market, the LG-made Google Nexus 4 continues to sell in strong numbers. Moreover, the recent price-drop, which saw significant amounts slashed from the cost of the Big G’s already cheap-and-cheerful device, will have done its popularity no harm at all. But due to its age, the technology is not quite as fledgling as this time last year, and if you’ve checked the displays of devices like the Galaxy S4 or the HTC One, you’ll know that the Nexus 4’s screen looks a little washy by comparison. Thanks to the work of the guys over at XDA-Developers, notably member franciscofranco, you can inject a little much-needed life into your Nexus 4’s display.

The LG-manufactured, Google-branded Nexus 4 smartphone has proved popular with consumers thanks to its relatively low price allied to a fairly impressive list of hardware specs.

Apparently, a certain Jeff Williams got his hands today on a used Nexus 4 from a Googler – which was purportedly running Android 4.3. What was immediately discarded as a hoax turned out to be true just hours later, when certain individuals well-versed with Android helped Jeff get a system dump of the build that was there on his Nexus 4. From there, it was merely a matter of minutes to reach to a point where anyone with a Nexus 4 can play around with the “leaked” build and experience Android 4.3 before official release.

The popular Google-branded LG Nexus 4 has been around for quite a while now, and while most high-end smartphones tend to launch in a dark and light combination (black and white, unless you’re thinking Samsung Galaxy), the Nexus 4 has only been available in black. LG has been prepping an accompanying white variant to broaden consumer choice, though, and now, the Korean company has just announced its availability.

Google I/O was expected to play host to the grand unveiling of Android 4.3, but despite a number of key announcements pertaining to the search giant’s flagship ecosystem, the next version of Android remained firmly off the agenda. Following the news (or lack thereof), many sources then went along with the story that Android 4.3 release date could be set somewhere around summer this year, and today, that notion has been offered a degree of legitimacy with the sighting of the bumped software running on an LG-manufactured Google Nexus 4.

Back when Google released the Nexus 4 in November of 2012, many lamented its lack of LTE. That wasn’t enough to stop it from becoming something of a cult hit though.
