Google Is Rolling Out A Security Update For The Nexus 4, 5, 6, 7, 9

By 12:09 Tue, 27 Jul 2021 Comments

Starting today a recent software update is headed towards what is basically the entire Nexus line of mobile devices released within the past few years. We're talking about the LG Nexus 4, LG Nexus 5, Motorola Nexus 6, Asus Nexus 7, and HTC Nexus 9.

All of these devices are about to receive a recent software build, yet the Android version will stay at 5.1.1 even after you apply the update. The recent build number is LMY48M, and this should be identical for all of the aforementioned products except carrier versions of the Nexus 6. In this case there will be different build numbers - for example T-Mobile's is LYZ28K.

This seems to be the first of the recently promised monthly security updates. That commitment was revealed by Google after the gigantic Stagefcorrect vulnerability was discovered. Alongside the security patches, the recent update should also come with some unnamed bug fixes.

Since there are no recent features inside, these updates are small. We're talking around 30Mega Bytes (MB) for the Nexus 6, and under 20Mega Bytes (MB) for other devices. So it really shouldn't hold you long to download and install. It might however be a while until you acquire that update notification, becautilize as usual Google's opted for a staged rollout.
