Android 4.4.3 KitKat Update: Motorola's Moto E VIDEO Reveals New Operating System Release Date Coming Soon
New reports indicate that the rumored Android 4.4.3 KitKat update is closing in on us for Google's Nexus line of phones, and that a version for the Samsung Galaxy S5 is in the works as well. What's more, Motorola's new Moto E has a launch trailer that reveals the new phone will upgrade to the latest operating system, giving us hope that the release is imminent.
The Moto E is a budget phone, just $129 with no contract, but is a solid little piece of tech. It's got Corning Gorilla Glass, water-repellent splash guard, and a 1980 mAh battery that's designed to last an entire day. While it comes with a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 processor and 1GB of RAM that won't let it play the fanciest games out there, it will come with an update to the latest version of Android installed, as shown in the video below. Check out the reveal at the :40 second mark.
Months ago, it was revealed that Google had an update to Android 4.4.2 KitKat on the way, and this "Android 4.4.3" version would contain massive bug fixes and tweaks to the OS.
