There is a lot of excitement post the launch of the new Nexus 5 phone from Google. The phone was sold out in the US soon after it was made available at the Google Play Store. Nexus 5 is not yet available in India but it is coming soon with a price tag of Rs. 28,999 and Rs. 32,999 for the 16 GB and the 32 GB versions.
The question being asked now is that when will the Nexus 4,7 and 10 get the Android 4.4 Kitkat update ? The answer from Google is, ‘in the coming weeks’.
We do not know the exact release dates but Google has confirmed this on their support page: ” Nexus 4, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 will be receiving the Android 4.4 update. The latest version will be available in the coming weeks. Once the update is released, it can take up to two weeks for it to reach your device.”
This is good news. We know that the Nexus 5 already comes with Android 4.4 Kitkat pre-installed, however you may be prompted for a small update when you set up your device.
Google has made it clear that the Galaxy Nexus will not receive the Android 4.4 Kitkat update. As per Google: “Galaxy Nexus, which first launched two years ago, falls outside of the 18-month update window when Google and others traditionally update devices.”
