Nexus 7 2013

It’s been a long time coming, but those of you with the cellular equipped Nexus 7 (both models) can expect Android 5.0.2 Lollipop to soon hit your devices. Earlier today, Google posted the system images and binaries for both the original Nexus 7 LTE , and the Nexus 7 2013 LTE as shown in the screen shot down below.

The Android 5.0.2 update (build LRX22G) is the same build number that already rolled out to the Nexus 10 and WiFi equipped Nexus 7 models. We’re not sure what took Google so long, but hopefully it gave them enough time to patch up all those bugs we’ve been hearing about. From here, you can either manually apply the update yourself (providing you have an unlocked bootloader and knowledge of ADB), or wait for the official rollout to commence.

Still no word on when Google plans on pushing out this update over-the-air, but it shouldn’t be much longer now. Those of you with the 4G LTE equipped Nexus 7 or Nexus 2013 can rest assured the update is, in fact, coming.
