Google has released Android 4.4.4 software update for the LTE model of Nexus 7 2013.

In June, Google confirmed the availability of Android 4.4.4 with build version KTU84P for its Nexus lineups such as Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013 models) with fixes for the vulnerability in OpenSSL bug, tweaks to OpenSSL, WebView and Chromium projects and other additional fixes for some unrelated bug in the logging and security.

But now the owners of Nexus 7 2013 LTE have reportedly received Android 4.4.4 KTU84P OTA (over-the-air), which weighs in at 2.4MB, reports Phandroid.

The new build pushed up the firmware version of the device from Android 4.4.3 to Android 4.4.4 and adds the aforementioned OpenSSL security fixes.

The roll-out begins a day after Google posted the Android 4.4.4 KTU84P factory image in the Google Developers site for the Nexus 7 LTE codenamed 'razorg'.

As the Android 4.4.4 firmware has just made its way through the Nexus 7 2013 LTE, the latest disclosure hints that Google is planning to release a new developer preview for Android L soon, states XDA.

There are numerous issues related to bug reports and feature requests in the Chromium issue tracker, which indicate that the new release will be available to download soon. The fixes show refinements in the networking, sensors and visual tweaks.

The final version of Android L is expected to become available in another few weeks.
