Nexus 5 Receiving an Update Today, According to Sprint

According to Sprint’s support page for the Nexus 5, the Google flagship is due to receive an update today. The changelog for the update only mentions that it enables “Sprint Spark band 26 and band 41” and includes “misc Android updates.” That’s it.

Is it Android 4.4.3? Could be. Until we see it push to devices or a mention of its existence from Google, we’ll continue to keep one eye-brow raised.

Let us know if you see anything.

  • Embarrassing

    People use Sprint?

    • Jonathan Williams

      Having it and being able to use it are different things.

      • Jack Keating

        have it and use it, have great LTE coverage and soon to have Spark deployed

    I wonder if 4.4.3 will include an updated ssl client. 4.4.2 is open to heart bleed problem.

    I hope Google Moto pushes this update soon before Lenvo Moto completely happens…

    I have a feeling this is just the update to enable all three bands for the Sprint Spark…the one that was released to the LG G2 back in January. Nexus did not get that update at the time.

      Since it is a Nexus device wouldn’t that mean a version change though? If I remember correctly when the Nexus S 4G got Google Wallet support it was part of 2.3.7, and that was the only improvement for that update.

        Every Nexus 5 in the US is the same hardware. So, the Spark update for Sprint will be included in the software for every Nexus 5 (though on Sprint customers will use it, obviously).

        There’s no carrier specific Nexus 5. This is the best way to do it.

  • Jeremy Gross

    everytime i seee an article about the nexus 5 i think “damn it verizon u effed up”

    • Severo Rivera

      Maybe you should change carriers? Unless of course coverage on the other carries isn’t good for you where you live.

    I heart the panda stormtrooper

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    I have to admit…this whole “update” thing becomes pretty boring when you have a Nexus and aren’t yelling at carriers on every post

    • The Narrator

      Well we’re entitled to our updates!

    • Kevin

      i’d like to continue to yell at verizon on behalf of G2 owners.
