New Nexus 6 Factory Image appears – most likely a Verizon specific update

Nexus 6 - Header Resized
The rollout of Android 5.1 to Nexus phones and tablets continues, but it seems that the Nexus 6 may be getting a small administrative update on top of that release. Build LMY47E has appeared on the Nexus Factory Image page, updating from the previous LMY47D release, but it may not be anything terribly exciting.

Reports are trickling in that the release is specific to the Nexus 6 which recently launched on US carrier Verizon. The firmware is most likely carrying a few tweaks to the radio specific to the Verizon network, and possibly some base OS files. It’s very likely that we’ll see the firmware merged into a future update to bring all Nexus 6 handsets onto one release, but it’s unlikely that you’ll find anything in it which will be pertinent to the Australian carrier network.

The rollout to Nexus 6 handsets continues, but if you want to jump the gun, you can find the link to the OTA file in our post here.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
