T-Mobile Posts Nexus 4 Update JWR66Y, Brings "Security Improvements," Probably Not Much Else

A small OTA update looks to be headed out to the Nexus 4 today, courtesy of an update document posted on T-Mobile's support page for the device. The build number is JWR66Y, which is obviously a very, very incremental bump from the previous build JWR66V. And the changelog matches up with such an assessment, as it includes but one item: "Security." That's nice and specific.

We have to assume this update will be headed to all Play Store Nexus 4 devices as well, not merely T-Mobile's, as the two are actually one and the same.

HTC's yet-unannounced Zara isn't exactly a stranger to the rumor circuit. We've heard all the important specs, but @evleaks has just given us a look at what appears to be a slightly censored press shot.

Breaking: Massive YouTube For Android v5.0 Update Brings Brand New UI, In-App Multitasking, And Much More [Updated]

Google has started rolling out a staged YouTube for Android update, and it's probably the biggest redesign the app has seen yet. We've gotten a hold of the APK with exact version 5.0.21 (the previous version is 4.5.17), and after playing with it for about 30 minutes so far, I can definitively say that it's hugely improved.

The biggest new features I've spotted so far are:

  • A brand new card-based UI - the app looks better than ever before.

AT&T Announces HTC One Mini – Available August 23rd For $99.99 On-Contract

Is the HTC One "classic" just a little too big and ungainly? Then perhaps the HTC One Mini is up your alley. It just so happens AT&T is looking to sell one to you.

While we haven't heard a peep about the Android 4.2 update rolling out to the HTC One in the US, it's old news in Europe. In fact, HTC is already rolling out the 4.2 update to last year's flagship, the HTC One X, on that side of the pond. European owners of the Tegra 3-powered handset will now get to taste Sense 5, including BlinkFeed, but they have the option to disable the latter if they're not interested.

Just how big is the HTC One Max (AKA T6), rumored to use a 5.9-inch screen? It's big. So big that it dwarfs the HTC One in a new photo from ePrice, the source that leaked the original photos of a purported Chinese model of the upcoming phone. The latest leak shows it next to the One and One Mini, making a family portrait for the One series.

[Update: AT&T Date] Samsung Announces The Galaxy Mega For The U.S. – Coming To AT&T, US Cellular, And Sprint

If the Galaxy Note II isn't what you'd call "big," and you'd feel much more comfortable using something like a Nexus 7 as your phone, then perhaps the Galaxy Mega may be just what the doctor ordered. While the Mega isn't a new phone in terms of international availability, Samsung has just announced that the massive 6.3-inch device will be making its way to the States eventually. This comes as no surprise, as we've already seen both AT&T and Sprint versions of the device.
