Android 4.4.3 KitKat Update For Google Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, Nexus 10, and GPE Devices Coming Soon

android-4-4-3

Android 4.4.2 KitKat update has been expected for the Google Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and the Google Play Edition devices for a while, but it seems like now Google is almost ready to release it.

A new report shows that Google has almost finished the preparations for the Android 4.4.3 update, so users should receive it in the following weeks.

We first heart about the Android 4.4.3 update from Sprint, which announced that will be released in April, though the update was pulled back due to some issues with it. Soon thereafter we noticed a Sony Xperia Z Ultra Google Play Edition running Android 4.4.3, though no official update has been rolled out yet on that device either.

Initially it was though that Android 4.4.3 was only headed to the Nexus 5 to fix some camera bugs, along with some other small glitches, but it seems like Google intends to fix much more than that and it will probably reach all Android 4.4.2 KitKat running smartphones.

If you’re curious about the smartphones that will be updated to Android 4.4.3 KitKat, then you’re lucky, because we have a list of the smartphones that we believe will be updated very soon. The list includes Google Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 2012 and 2013, Nexus 10, Samsung Galaxy S4 GPE, HTC One GPE, HTC One M8 GPE, Sony Xperia Z GPE, Sony Xperia Z Ultra GPE. Along with these smartphones, the update should reach all the other smartphones that already run or will be updated to Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

We believe the update will roll out this month on Nexus and Google Play Edition devices, while the others should follow soon thereafter.

We’re still trying to find out more details about the Android 4.4.3 KitKat update and we will let you know once we find out more information. It doesn’t seem like there’s anything new coming with this update, but it should fix a lot of problems some users have been encountering.

    Thank you for that extreme waste of space article…don’t tell ANYTHING that hasn’t been speculated on already, no facts at all. FAIL.

    • Vinnie Vegas

      It could be worse. We could be reading the International Business Times.

      • Stephen Kucharski

        I think International Business Times is the worst waste of space on the internet. I’d rather watch someone taking a video of their boring cat cleaning themselves than read their stupidity.

        That said; this article isn’t much better. All these “news” organizations know how to do is rehash old information. There isn’t any “news” in this article whatsoever – and there won’t be until Google actually announces something.

        Click-bait to generate hits… and here I am posting a comment to help them out. Shame on me..

          Android Police is where it’s at.

            Well said my friend.

      • Jamie Andrews

        They’re (IBT) so full of crap it’s unbelievable… That and the awful amount of advertisements that smack you in the face, it’s just so bad it’s not even funny! Terrible website, terrible layout and awful, unhelpful, BS content.

  • João

    Honestly this guy’s get paid to sit on their assess and once a week write an article that took 30m to make that no one cares because every one knows that and is all speculated.

  • PJRISIN

    Get some facts. Actual release dates and actual reason behind the so called changes from 4.4.2 to 4.4.3 instead of a bunch of guess work. This article have no merit and isn’t even worth writing let alone reading.

    • michael

      Well said

  • Steph Horvath

    As usual …nothing but click bait

    • DrZoo

      At least it’s safer than jailbait.

      • makapav

        I call BS. Jailbait was way more entertaining.

  • kymm puckeridge

    Three guesses what websites are paying Google to have their really ‘current’ stories pushed through Google now

  • Bob Titchmarsh

    Not only nothing new but also poorly written. First line mentions 4.4.2 expected soon.

    • makapav

      They screwed up the find and replace on last year’s 4.4.2 article.

  • Shawntee

    Google Camera for all! Hopefully CM includes Google Camera support with 4.4.3 code.

  • aha

    boah man, click bait all over. You’re definitely a waste of time

  • Dholb

    Typos aside, this article was trash

  • seby kleefy

    Don’t you mean 4.4.3??? I mean its the first sentence. Did you even bother proof reading?

  • Gary

    I agree, it has already been said by so many others. We need more than frivolous hype. But I suppose this guy is just trying to not lose his position in all this. I won’t die because of this.

  • Denny Crane

    In other earth-shattering news, iOS should have an update sometime this year, Windows should release security updates for their PCs soon, and automotive manufacturers will begin rolling out their 2015 models in a few months.

  • marque2

    Eh for all you complainers down there – I found the article worthwhile.

  • DrZoo

    I can write an even better article, right here, right meow. The “leak” of Android 4.4.3 was a total fail by Sprint or whoever the culprit was. There is no solid news from Google about when it will be released. It’s going to fix some bugs, but no major UI updates. The update will be released when it has been adequately tested and Google feels that it is ready. (Of course they probably have some sort of goal date they are aiming for, but if they don’t think it’s ready by then they surely won’t release it.) So hold onto your pants before they get away from you! Those who own Nexus or Google Play Edition devices will be first in line when the update rolls out. DON’T WORRY WE WON’T BE FORGOTTEN!!!

    Sincerely,
    Smartest Journalist Ever

      Heck, I could write a better article with less typos with the windows virtual keyboard.

  • Stephen Kucharski

    “We first heart about the Android 4.4.3 update…” Not only is this crap – but it’s crap…

  • Nick Atkins

    I saw this article somewhere else word for word yesterday

    • Christopher Gordon

      Haven’t seen anything about the s5 yet. Probably be a few months later if at all.

  • Richard

    Does anyone know if the galaxy s5 will get the update?

  • Zachary Hawkins

    What a waste of time holy crap that’s badly written

  • The great blue whale

    Hahahah the comments on this article are are great I didn’t read the article just skipped down to the comments and oh man then I had to at least skim through it. Traaaaaaaash

  • Christopher Gordon

    Not only is it a waste of space article, but you may want to proof read from time to time. “We first heart about the” mayhaps you meant heard.

  • jeddo45

    You know I’m all for non-clickbait articles but jeez give these people a break!

  • beagsx2

    So what new information have we all learned from this article? Erm that android 4.4.3 is expected anytine soon and nexus devices take prioruty. Kinda knew that already, sorry. NEXT!!!

  • Furqan Ghori

    Every day same update being shared on these kind of websites. Such wastage of time and creating disturbance and anger for the user. It has already been delayed and still there is no sign of update :@

  • Tony Spencer

    I would love a way to keep these crap clickbait sites from showing up on devices!

  • GiSWiG

    Android 10.1 expected soon! Well, sooner than our Sun going supernova anyway.

  • Myself2014

    It’s stuff I didn’t know. Not everybody out there knows it all.
