Sprint has updated its software update release notes page for the Nexus 5 to list a release date of December 15th (today) for the much-awaited 5.0.1 update to Android Lollipop. The build, version LRX22C, should be rolling out to devices starting today but–as usual–could take several days to arrive.

Since we’ve been waiting a while and this is one of the last devices to get the 5.0.1 update, this should be sign that the update will be rolling out to all devices regardless of carrier soon. The update doesn’t pack any known big features, but is rather an incremental under-the-hood update.

Google has yet to update its factory image download page on the Developers site with the image for this release, but we wouldn’t be surprised if that showed up very soon. Downloads are available, however, for the Nexus 4, 6, 7 (certain models), 9, and 10. We’ll update this post when you can grab the latest build for the Nexus 5.

Update: T-Mobile has also updated their support documentation.

Update 2: Image now available.
