nexus-6-review-3

Not a lot of devices have received the Android 5.1.1 update yet, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge only got it yesterday and that too on just T-Mobile in the United States. At least with Nexus devices users know that they will always be first in line for new major updates from Google. That has not quite been the case with the Nexus 6 on AT&T, but finally the country’s second largest mobile carrier is rolling out Android 5.1.1 for this handset.

Sprint and U.S. Cellular have already released said update for the Nexus 6, it appears that AT&T is releasing the very same build that has already been sent out by the aforementioned carriers.

Carrying firmware version LMY47Z the Android 5.1.1 for Nexus 6 on AT&T brings bug fixes and performance improvements. It will disable the Smart Lock feature when EAS password policy is enforced as well.

The update comes in just north of 80MB and requires the device to be hooked up to a Wi-Fi network before it can be downloaded over-the-air.

Since it’s being rolled out over-the-air, keep in mind that this is going to be a phased roll out and it will take a while for the update go live across all regions.

When it does arrive users will get an update notification on their device telling them that Android 5.1.1 is ready for them to download and install at will.
