Android 4.3.1 update surprises Nexus 7 2013 owners, rolling out now
It was not long ago when Google officially rolled out Android 4.3 to its Nexus line of devices, but it is already pushing a minor update. Yesterday, owners of the Nexus 7 2013 LTE edition were somewhat surprised to see an unannounced update for their device and after installing it, the software version changes to 4.3.1.

Android 4.3.1 Jelly Bean is likely a minor update with the usual stability fixes and bug patches. What’s interesting however is that Google has already launched a few of those update and fixes without incrementing the version number, so this likely has some deeper changes that we’re yet to explore.

The update has rolled out over the air and should arrive to your device soon, if it hasn’t yet. It weighs 9.42MB and keeps the radio version of the device the same.

With Kitkat 4.4 less than a month a way, this makes me wonder what was so important that they pushed this update? If it's such a minor update, why not just wait and push it with kitkat?

Screen flickers when brightness is turned down less than 40%, hopefully this fixes that problem. Mine was driving me crazy until I found that work around on the web.

May be they are trying to catchup apple as they have released 7.0.1, 7.0.2 (7.0.3 in queue) in record time.

Is this update also coming to the old Nexus 7 devices or just for the 2013 version?

I think this update for fixing some issues with Nexus 7 2013 only.
