Google is expected to release its latest Android 4.4.3 KitKat update in the near future, followed by Android 4.5 Lollipop later this year. From what we have just discovered, the new software Android 4.4.3 KitKat roll-out will begin with Google’s Nexus devices, the list including Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 2013, with other Moto X updates to follow, buy you shouldn’t put your hopes too high. We can already tell you that the update is primarily for bug fixes and security, with no new features to be found. But his doesn’t have to mean that it is not important!
Android 4.4.3 is in the Dogfooding Stage
Android 4.4.3, also known as KitKat MR2 as long as Android 4.4.1 and 4.4.2 are known as KitKat MR1 is in the dogfooding stage and has started rolling out to the supported Nexus line that we have told you about from the start. And we can tell you that for sure as long as the information has been confirmed by various reliable sources, just as we have all seen in the picture showing us the 4.4.3 version running on a Nexus 5.
Google’s Android 4.4.2 KitKat was rolled out to users beginning November 2013, so, given the circumstances, we can only imagine that this Android 4.4.3 KitKat should be out in coming weeks, but the exact schedule is still unknown for the moment. It is obviously that it has to do with these dogfooding tests, but one thing is for sure: we won’t have to wait that long until an OTA update will start spreading.
Android 4.4.3 KitKat Bug Fixes
As we have told you, the update comes just with stability issues and nothing more than that. From what it has just been revealed, one bug fix will be the ‘mm-qcamera-daemon’ crash, which caused the Google Nexus 5 battery drain problems that we all know about.
This time, Google has successfully identified the issue as stemming from the high CPU usage of the ‘mm-qcamera-daemon’ process, so it will soon be solved.
Moreover, are bug fixes are expected, unstable data connections, including improved camera focus, VPN fix, fix for LED problems and not only. So, don’t forget to check on us later; we’ll soon return with new Android 4.4.3 KitKat details.
