Barely 24 hours have passed since Google launched the Nexus 5 across the globe, including India. Though it s common knowledge that the Nexus 5 runs on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat, a report by UK retailer Clove claims that when you fire up that Nexus 5 for the first time, you might have to go through a software update process before you can start using the device.

I m sure you are wondering how that is possible, considering there is no OS version after KitKat. Apparently, to avoid a repeat of last year’s shortages with the Nexus 4, LG built initial batches of the phone before Google had the software completed. As a result, some of the handsets being shipped do not have the final version of Android KitKat installed.
The software update weighs in at 139.3MB, but that size could be different in India. You can either use your data connection or Wi-Fi to download the update and as mentioned above, there is no way to bypass this step.
This extra step will no doubt frustrate quite a few people, but we are sure once you start using the Nexus 5 you will forget all about it.
