Nexus 4 gets Android Lollipop as Google posts factory image

The Google Nexus 4 has become the latest handset to be granted access to the brand new Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system.

Although it’s not available over the air, Google has made the factory image available via the Android developers website.

Although not that straightforward to install, the factory image allows users who’ve unlocked their device to install the latest software and access the latest features without losing their data.

The over the air option will likely be available in the coming days or weeks, but for impatient and confident Android users, the option to suck it and see with Lollipop is now available.

The arrival on the Nexus 4 joins releases for the Nexus 5, Nexus 10 and the Wi-Fi version of the 2013 Nexus 7 tablets.

Certain Moto G users have been able to jump on board, while owners of the LG G3 were also slated to get in on the act this week. HTC also plans to push Lollipop on to the Google Play Edition devices next week.
