Android 4.4.3 Update for Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 7 2013, and Nexus 10 Could Arrive Soon

Android 4.4.3 update Neus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10

Even though there’s no official word on it, the Android 4.4.3 update for Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 7 2013, Nexus 10, and other supported devices could be made available for download in the next few days.

We told you yesterday that the folks at Sprint already announced they are rolling out the Android 4.4.3 update for their Nexus 5 variant and chances are that other members of the Nexus family will follow. I have to admit, it’s quite odd to see a carrier announcing the roll out of a new Android firmware before Google, but this might happen because we’re talking about a rather minor update.

Besides rolling out Android 4.4.3 for Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 7 2013, and Nexus 10, Google might also push the new update to the owners of the Google Play Edition smartphones and tablets, therefore if you happen to own a Samsung Galaxy S4 GPE, HTC One GPE, HTC One M8 GPE, Sony Xperia Z Ultra GP, Motorola Moto G GPE, or LG G Pad 8.3 GPE you should keep an eye on the notification area.

As usual, the new Android 4.4.3 KitKat OTA update will be pushed to users in stages, meaning that the time of arrival might be different depending on the device model and region. Anyway, when your device will be eligible to receive the new firmware you should receive a system update message in the notification area. Alternatively, you should also check for it in the Settings menu under About phone (tablet) > System updates > Check now.

As I was mentioning above, the Android 4.4.3 is a rather minor update, so I guess it’s save to assume that it will be sized under 100 MB so connecting to a WiFi network to avoid data charges won’t be mandatory.

Do you happen to own one of the aforementioned Nexus-experience devices? Any signs of the Android 4.4.3 update? Please let us know in comments.

    Well you didn’t mention Nexus 5 here. Is it mean that the
    update is only available for these specified Smartphones mentioned above? I eagerly wait for this update for my Nexus 5 device as I am facing quick battery drainage problem from almost 2 months. To rectify this problem from my end I recently purchased a wireless car charger from Amazon by CHOETECH at reasonable price to keep my phone fully charged. Earlier it was rumored that the updated 4.4.3 version would be available around second week of April but still waiting for it.
