The Nexus 7 is Google’s middle-sized tablet in the Nexus range, and it seems as though Google has not only created the 4.3.1 JLS36I build, but brought it out for the Nexus 7 LTE 2013 model.

Up until now there was no rumbling through the paddock at all about such a build evening being of existence. It’s news that is sure to be music to the owners of this particular tablets ears because not only does it exists, but it is a polished enough of an upgrade for it to be officially pushed out of the Android team.

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean

The upgrade began rolling out over the air late last night and will be making its way around to device owners, as long as it’s the LTE version that they own.


Being so fresh off the shelf, there is no news of what is inside of this update. Being a build with the 1 at the end of a big release — the 4.3 — it most likely is just for improvements over existing features, as a pose for anything spectacular being added on that we haven’t yet seen.

More time will give us a better idea of what was inside of this one.

What we do know is that Android 4.3 did have its fair share of problems that needed fixing, and that is a similar story right across the board to all the devices that have already seen the upgrade, including both tablets and mobiles. This update seems to solely be for the Nexus 7 tablets so far, though.

This one comes in at 9.42 MB in size, so we know that is very small in comparison to larger installments that have new features on board.

In case you forgot, the Nexus 7 LTE comes with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean AOSP out the box. This is a small jump up from there. It has the Snapdragon processor with a S4 Pro CPU. There is two different storage options when shopping. The smaller 16GB internal storage and the bigger 32GB. Being called a Nexus 7 it has the 7-inch display made of WUZGA LED.

Android 4.4 has been available for installation since December 2013 if you would prefer running the new firmware instead.
