The Nexus 4 is now pushing two years old, but it still remains a solid enough handset and of course is a stock Android device so is ideal for the purists out there. Google is still showing its aging smartphone some love and confirmed when launching Android 5.0 Lollipop a couple of weeks ago that the Nexus 4 would get the upgrade.

A Google employee on Google+ has recommitted to that stance and even said the update for the Nexus 4 is ready to go. In fact the post said that the build version LRX21T is "locked and loaded" and is ready to land on the Nexus 4 soon.

Just Nexus 4 [is getting LRX21T] for now. Our goal was to use as many letters as possible for all the different devices," Sascha Prüter said, adding the update will arrive "soon, not sure when exactly but shouldn't be too long. Staging the factory images always takes some time.

The Nexus line is the first to get the new Android versions, which is why the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 are already packing Google's latest and greatest mobile platform build. Next up should be the Google Play Edition handsets and the older Nexus devices before true third party products get the roll out. However with the like of LG and NVIDIA promising Lollipop for some of their devices this month, Google will have to get a move on with the Nexus 4.

Are you rocking the older Nexus device, and if so are you stoked to be getting Android 5.0 Lollipop?
