We’ve been waiting for the Android 4.4.3 KitKat update for the Nexus devices for a while, as it’s been proved to exist, but we’ve had no clear date for it until now. Though this changes today, thanks to a source, who told us that Google is planning to roll it out starting on May 23 on the Google Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10.
This means that all the recent Nexus devices will be updated to Android 4.4.3 by the end of the month and we expect Google Play Edition ones to follow soon thereafter.
We’ve now asked our source when it will start rolling out on the GPE devices and we’re waiting for a reply, but we’re very sure that it won’t take more than a week until they will start receiving the update too.
If you want to find out what are the changes in Android 4.4.3, you can view the changelog here. That changelog has also brought us proof about a future Nexus 8 tablet that might be manufactured by HTC.
While we’re waiting for the Android 4.4.3 to roll out, it’s most likely that Google is working on an entirely new Android version which could be released at I/O, this year.
We keep trying to find out more information about the next Android version, but we didn’t manage to find out anything yet. Once we do, we will let you know.
Android 4.4.3 should also roll out on all smartphones running Android 4.4.2 KitKat right now and on those that are going to receive that update in the future. Samsung is rumored to skip the 4.4.2 update entirely and update some smartphones directly to 4.4.3.
That’s all we know about Android 4.4.3 until now, but we’ll let you know once we find out more information about it or when Google decides to send it to their smartphones. If our source is right, that should happen in about one week.
