Android 4.4.3 Kitkat Update Expected to Come to Nexus Next Month Before Google Play Edition Devices
The Android 4.4.3 Kitkat Update was rumored to hit this month but it's clearly not happening. One thing's for sure though- it's going to be hitting Google's Nexus devices first. Owners of the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 traditionally get the newest operating system updates first, and are usually the best indication that it's going to roll out to the other Google Play devices.
May 2014 seems like a likely release for Nexus devices, although Google Play phones from smartphone makers like Samsung, HTC, Sony, Motorola and LG may get it in June or even later. Is it fair? No, but when you make the operating system your devices get first dibs. This could be the last line of Nexus phones that ever exist, as Google is reportedly set to retire the name to focus on new handsets codenamed Android Silver.
4.4.3 Kitkat will mostly focus on bug fixes from the last version. There aren't any major features being included or UI changes involved, but that hasn't stopped people from trying to guess at what it could have.
Last month Android Police published a list of all of the bug fixes with the new version but there's a good chance that this list has been added to. What do you think- what would you like to see in the newest update?
