nexus 4 android 4.4 kitkat update

Some Nexus 4 users are reporting that the Android 4.4 KitKat OTA has finally graced their phones. The update comes just hours after the Verizon Moto X received the same bump to Android 4.4 and after Google rolled out a bug fixing update to some of its others Nexus devices.

It appears that the KitKat OTA for the Nexus 4 rolled out with a slight delay to allow Google to fix the bugs found after the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 were updated last week.

Users on Twitter and on forums report that the update weighs in at 238 MB and that it brings the build number to KRT16S. You will need to have at least 20 percent battery and preferably a WiFi connection.

It’s only a matter of time until someones gets the download URL and then everyone can join in the fun. We’ll keep you posted as soon as that happens. If you prefer to wait for your OTA, be warned that updates of this type roll out in waves, and it can take days or even weeks until they reach all devices.

Android 4.4 KitKat won’t bring to the Nexus 4 the new Google Experience Launcher, but there still is a lot to look forward to.

Did you get your KitKat, Nexus 4 users?
