The Nexus series is always known to receive the newest versions of the Android Operating System first – and they get it without any pesky or bothersome User Interface installed, for those of you who have a problem with Custom User Interfaces or prefer your phones in a more vanilla-form of software. Usually, the newest or most popular ( they usually go hand-in-hand for Nexus devices ) gets the newest update first, and as you may have guessed from the title, the phone getting it is the Nexus 5.
A small drawback of this new update is that it’s limited as far as carriers go. Android OS v4.4.3 KitKat will only be available for those Nexus 5 users on Sprint. Anyway, being branded with the version number KTU48F, this update does a very specific thing related to Sprint – it allows the device to work on Sprint’s LTE network on bands 26 and 41. While previous rumors might have indicated that this update was meant to bring new features or user interface modifications, what it mainly does is fix a couple of existing bugs and not much else.
The bugs mostly covered by this update are regarding Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, but known problems with data connection loss, random reboots, missed calls and various camera bugs have also been taken care of. This update also hasn’t appeared on the list of factory images for Nexus devices ( not yet, anyway ), but Sprint is currently seeding it to its customers with Nexus 5 phones.
