Android 4.4.3 KitKat Update For Google Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 Might be Delayed Again

Last week we told you that Google is preparing to start rolling out the Android 4.4.3 KitKat update for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 on May 23 and our source was very sure about that. But we’ve struggled to find out more information about this and it seems like the update might be delayed once again, unfortunately.

We are very confident now that Google is working on the Android 4.4.3 KitKat update, which should come with a lot of bug fixes and minor improvement, being just an incremental update and not something major. It should first roll out on four Nexus devices, the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10. Soon thereafter the update should reach all Google Play Edition (GPE) devices and then those already running Android 4.4.2.

We already have a lot of information about Android 4.4.3, including a changelog which has brought us information about an upcoming Google Nexus 8 that may be built by HTC.

If you want to find out more about Android 4.4.3, then check out the changelog, which can offer you an insight.

Other information suggests that Samsung is planning to skip the Android 4.4.2 and jump directly to 4.4.3. We expect other manufacturers to do the same thing, as we’ve seen it in the past too.

In the meantime we are trying to find out more information about the rumored Nexus 8, which will most likely replace either the Nexus 7 or Nexus 10. Most rumors say that Google won’t be selling three tablets so they will have to ditch one of the two existing ones. We believe it will be the Nexus 10, which has never received an upgrade and is nearly two years old.

Once we find out any more information about Android 4.4.3 or the Nexus 8 tablet we will let you know. For the moment we’re still researching the subject and working close with our sources to bring you the best intel you can get.

Google Nexus 7 Articles

    Delayed huh?. Well I think I’ll have a heart attack from being not suprised.

  • Had Enough With the BS

    ongoing regurgitation !

  • Simon Belmont

    How convenient that your “source” now says it might be delayed. Now you can absolve yourself of any criticism of the May 23rd date that your “source” told you about last week because of the supposed delay, if May 23rd comes and goes and no update materializes.

    The update will get here when it gets here. Not a moment sooner. This is just stirring the pot. That’s the feeling that I get from this type of article and pretty much every article I see from page-click baiting websites.

    • ronald

      Agree 100%! Just a bunch of lames playing head games…nothing more nothing less! (yawn)


    If they don;t release it in the next couple of days, I guess Google I/O will be pretty boring (boring because we are talking about Google, the beta/alpha company) OS wise

  • Harold JP Castro

    I can’t believe Google now recommended this article, it’s so lame! Not actual facts, just some dude behind a desk playing head games like another guy posted before.

    • B

      That’s one of the reasons I’m not to thrilled about Google Now or that Android Wear will center around it. It recommends a lot of link bait articles like this one or from “International Business Times” or whatever it’s called.

      You should be able to blacklist sources in Google now. The “magic” is only magic if it works, otherwise it’s just annoying.

      • Daniel

        It appears they haven’t collected enough big data on us yet.

    • Eadgar Lopez

      Yeah, what’s wrong with this thing… only articles that are not well done, ANY final paper from school will be more detailed and have more information…????

    • kris mooney

      I totally agree with you. It’s starting to annoy me with all this hear say ….. Just wait for the official announcement or write about something else ffs.

      You have to understand that there is a community out there that does want to know 4.4.3 is probably delayed. Me for example. I had the 23rd marked in my calendar. I am hoping that the update fixes some major problems with my Nexus 5 and Straight Talk sending and receiving MMS (This information is useful because I might have to switch carriers to get MMS to work 100% and I would like to know how much time I’ll have to wait for the update and if its worth waiting). There is mention about MMS issues in the change log. So my opinion of Google Nows recommendation of this article was incredibly useful.

        You need to change your apn setting

  • Anthony Tremaine

    How about you stop wasting everyone’s time with these crap speculations.

  • Steph Horvath

    Says nexus 10 is getting update and then says Google might get rid of the 10 because it hasn’t had an upgrade in nearly 2 years.
    I have to stop clicking on these lame articles. They’re tiresome.

    • Jon Langevin

      Confused me as well. The author obviously doesn’t read what he writes, but it seems he intended to say that the 10 hasn’t had a *hardware refresh* in nearly 2 years, which is why he’s theorizing it will be dropped from the Nexus line.

      Personally, I think the 10 wasn’t refreshed as it is a high-performing tablet with an excellent display. Likely doesn’t sell as well as Nexus 7, but Nexus 7 also wasn’t as ahead of the curve as Nexus 10 was. Seems every 2 years would make sense for refreshing the 10, if they keep up with high-end specs.

  • BD

    It’s a bit lame as a Nexus 4 and now 5 owner to see that even the Samsung Galaxy S3 is running 4.4.2 software. Seems like android/Google developers are having more fun playing Warcraft than spending time making our phone’s run sweet. C’mon with the bug fixes!

    • Curm

      I hope in the update they fix Google Now! I don’t an informative service. Just want a way to block certain sources.

  • Teresa Michele

    Why can’t Google just tell us what to really expect?

  • Charles Quiros

    I don’t bother reading these articles anymore that are recommended by Google now regarding future tech/leaks or updates. I do however scroll down to the bottom to read how annoyed everyone is by the crap these sites put up. I guess you could say knowing everyone else is just as irritated makes it a little better. The tech industry’s becoming overly saturated with two bit “journalists” and articles and it’ll only hurt them in the long run. Keep it up!

    • Jon Langevin

      We need a way to weed out the BS news sites in Google Now, as the feature is great in theory, but is ruined by the spam…

  • Nexus 5

    stop false predictions

  • John Kirkland

    Not really a story. More of a hit catcher.

  • suwaid

    I don’t mind waiting….just make sure there are no problems…it hurts when an iOS user makes fun abt android os….

  • Nic Legaspi

    My Google Now is full of click-bait articles like this, with most coming from that IBT site. There should be a way to block stupid sites like these.

    • mcl630

      There is. Go to the Google News website, click the personalize your news button, and add the site you want to block to the “adjust sources” list, with the slider all the way to minus side. You won’t see articles from that source anymore in Google News or Google Now.

      It would be nice if this could be done directly from Google Now, but at least there is a way.

      • Nic Legaspi

        Done. Thanks! Will see how it goes. =)

  • BD

    Regarding the comment of Google now. It’s very low-tech with minimal customization. Like it better saying “Google” instead of having to say “okay Google”. Why can’t this be customized to whatever I want?? Why have work and home be the only two way points? I work from my home! For google to put their name on something… I’d expect more.

  • So-Then-I-Said

    With all the delays it’s really starting to feel like I’ve got a Blackberry again. Better bug free than too soon though.

    • Jeff

      4.4.2 is so crippled, I’d rather take my chances on a simple rearrangement of bugs, if that is the best they can manage. VPN, heck, who needs that?

  • this article sucks

    regurgitated old news .
