Android 4.4.3 Update for Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 Rumors and Expected Release


Is no longer a secret that the folks at Google are getting ready to release the Android 4.4.3 update for Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10. When will Google actually release the new firmware? No one knows for sure, but we can make an educated guess.
The first rumors about the Android 4.4.3 update surfaced online about two months ago. At that time it was believed that the new software version will be released exclusively for the Nexus 5 users and that is meant to fix the camera bug that is affecting certain terminals. Now all the reports and leaks indicate that the Android 4.4.3 update will be rolled out for the Nexus family of devices, as well as for the Google Play Edition terminals. In fact, a Sony Xperia Z Ultra Google Play Edition running Android 4.4.3 was spotted in Bluetooth SIG logs. Anyway, don’t be surprised to hear that terminals outside the Nexus family or GPE program will also receive the new update, as Samsung is reportedly testing Android 4.4.3 for Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S5 already.
After @googlenexus official Twitter account accidentally tweeted a screenshot of a redesigned Android phone dialer, an XDA Developers users provided a screenshot of the new Phone app, revealing that the interface will now be card-based. Later on, an alleged redesigned Android 4.4.3 navigation bar leaked online showing that the Mountain View-based company might not be satisfied with the level of Google Now integration, and that the new update might fix that.
But when will the Android 4.4.3 update for Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 will actually be released? More than a month ago, we’ve heard some rumors saying that Google has started the Android 4.4.3 dogfooding which means that the firmware has entered internal testing outside the core Android team. Furthermore, one of our source told us that the new update might be rolled out May 23, but then reached back to us saying that the update was delayed once again. Our guess is that Google planed to release the new firmware earlier, but because of the delays and because Google I/O is right around the corner, the search engine giant will launch the new update at their annual developers conference, June 26.
What are your expectations for the Android 4.4.3 update? When do you believe it will be released? Please let us know in comments.
