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.
