Google could be readying Android 4.4.3



Android 4.4.3, the next minor Kitkat update may be around the corner if current sources turn out to be true. Details about this upcoming release were made available earlier this week and all seems to indicate that Google will release this incremental upgrade before unveiling the next major flavour of the platform at I/O 2014

The update promises to address a broad list of issues plaguing current Nexus devices since 4.4.2. Issues, which for the most part range from mere bug fixes to significant camera fixes or Bluetooth issues. Two builds, KTU83 and KTU79 were spotted in the wild but it is currently unknown whether either is the final build.


With Google tinkering with several test builds we can only wonder if the giant will actually release the 4.4.3 upgrade or incorporate the current bug & feature fixes in the upcoming ‘L-named’ Android version. Nexus users should hopefully be thrilled with their camera focus issues finally ironed out.
