Android 4.4.3 Details Emerge: Expect Lots Of Bug Fixes

Details related to Android 4.4.3 have emerged, which will be first released for Nexus devices and then for other devices, and from what it looks like, this new update will be focusing purely on fixing bugs that many Android 4.4 KitKat users were complaining about.

Rumors of Android 4.4.3 started from some weeks ago, as some new build numbers and server logs were spotted by some users. With so many users talking about a much needed update, it is highly likely that we’ll be able to get our hands on 4.4.3 prior to the next major release which could be Android 4.5 or 5.0.

According to the sources of Android Police, Android 4.4.3 will be a massive bug fix update which many Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Nexus 5, and Nexus 4 users have been demanding for a long time. With this update, one shouldn’t expect any cosmetic changes or any new features. Google might save new features and UI changes for the next major version of Android.

Android 4.4.3 will fix several issues such as:

  • Frequent data connection dropout fix
  • Camera focus fix
  • Power Manager display wakelock fix
  • Multiple Bluetooth fixes
  • Random reboot fix
  • USB debugging security fix
  • Wi-Fi auto-connect fix
  • Stuck in activation screen fix
  • Missed call LED fix
  • VPN Fix
  • Many other important bug fixes

Of all these fixes, Nexus 5 users are most eagerly awaiting the camera focus fix, which is a serious issue on the smartphone. LlabTooFeR, too, has reported that Android 4.4.3 is under testing and it will fix the known camera bug.

For now, nothing is set in stone, not until and unless Google officially says something, or launches the new Android update. If somehow Google improves the battery performance via the new update, then it would be great. We hope Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is listening to our prayers.
