Nexus 4 and Nexus 5

A little over a month ago, just after announcing Android M at Google I/O, Google made the first Android M preview images available for Nexus devices. With releases for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, and Nexus 9, developers had the tools they needed to get started working with the new platform release – so long as they had some of this relatively modern Nexus hardware. But what about some of the more senior members of the Nexus family; would they ever get their own taste of Android M? With devices like the Nexus 4 and most recent Nexus 7 pushing two (if not closer to three) years old at this point, we haven’t been too confident about their chances of getting final Android M releases, let alone early previews, but some recent evidence suggests that Google may actually be preparing Android M previews for some of these Nexus models.

We’re looking at source code commits to the Android Open Source Project, where a number of entries for devices like the Nexus 4, Nexus 10, and even the original Nexus 7 make reference to Android M preview work.

But what does that actually mean? Well, that’s the problem, and even this evidence delivers little assurance that Google actually intends to follow through with a formal preview image for any of these devices. But it’s certainly got us thinking about the possibility, and we’ll be keeping an eye out over the next several weeks to see if there’s any further progress along this front.
