Android L on the Google Nexus 4
Every single Nexus 4’s owner broke into two when no Android L Developer Preview was released for the device. We have come with good news to mend your achy breaky heart!
It seems that the Nexus 4 might just be getting an Android L update this fall. Google’s teams have been testing official Android L on the device and that just might mean that nobody, including Nexus 4 gets left behind!
The report comes from Chromium.org board that spotted one Google employee saying, “With my N4 on Android L, I could open these images in the native Android Apps (Galary/Google+ Photos), that employs the native WebP support in Android.”
We hope that the fact the Android L build mentioned in these posts which is called “LRW52G” instead of “LRW66E” just like the Nexus 5′s Developer Preview isn’t a deal breaker. It is true that just because testing is underway, it doesn’t mean that the Nexus 4 is confirmed an Android L update.
We’re hoping the Nexus 4′s quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 2GB of RAM will be enough to run the Android L build smoothly and convince Google that an update for the device is needed.
