Nexus 5 (front)

Carrier-specific software updates are typically boring, but when a Nexus device is involved, it’s definitely worth a quick look. Today, Sprint is rolling out a new software bump for its version of the Nexus 5 and along with its share of generic fixes, the update enables Sprint Spark support for Bands 26 and 41. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Spark, it’s the carrier’s latest take on mobile broadband and is capable of data speeds of 50-60Mbps.

So, if you’re rocking the Now Network’s Nexus 5, you’ll want to keep an eye out for software version KTU48F. If you’ve yet to see any software notifications, you can always try to manually start the update, by tapping Settings>About Phone>System Updates. If you’ve already pulled down the new software, be sure to let us know how it’s treating you and your Nexus 5.
