Google’s current flagship handset, LG Nexus 4 can now join the ranks of its siblings (Samsung Galaxy Nexus, ASUS Nexus 7 and Samsung Nexus 10) as the online search giant released the Android 4.2.2 update for the glass-backed handset.
Earlier last month, we’ve reported that some users in Brazil and Malaysia we’re surprised that their Nexus 4 was already running on the latest version of Jellybean right off the bat. At that time, information about what the update brings other than the usual bug fixes.
Fortunately, other users who’ve already received the update shared some insights on what upgrades the patch have brought. In summary, this is what they’ve found out.
• App download notification now shows the remaining percentage
• Toggles on the Quick Settings
• New sound notifications for Wireless Charging and Battery Low.
As you can see, the update doesn’t bring in a whole lot of new features to the handset. Significant or not, we can all be thankful to Google for making sure that their devices are well-maintained and issues are being ironed out. Speaking of issues, the update is also said to finally put an end to the Nexus 4’s unofficial LTE support. This shouldn’t concern you too much though as the hardware only makes use LTE Band 4, a band that is not being used in in our country.
Sad to say, we’re still waiting to be notified for the update to come on our Nexus 4 (JOP40D build). Users who have already received the 4.2.2 update is said to own the smartphone with JDQ39 build. We’ll keep checking on our device and we’ll update this post once we got the update. If you can’t though, you can download the patch directly from Google and manually install it on your device.
