January Android security Nexus updates on the way

Google seems to be making good on its continued promise of monthly security updates, which is more than can be said for some OEMs. Although the factory images aren’t quite up yet, the first Android security patch of the New Year should be heading our way later today.

According to Sprint’s software support page for the Nexus 5, the latest software version MMB29S is set to be released today, January 4th. Verizon has posted the same update identifier for the Nexus 6, while there’s a slightly different MBB29O version listed for the Nexus 7. Presumably, similar update are on the way for the Nexus 5X and 6P as well.

We are not expecting any major changes with these updates, as they are still based on Android 6.0.1, but they should patch up a hole or two in Android’s security, according to the change logs.

The factory images haven’t popped up for download yet, but we’ll keep an eye out for them and an official word from Google.
