Android 4.4.3 Reportedly Spotted On Various Google Employee Nexus Devices

Android version 4.4.2 (KitKat) has been available for a while now, but there may be yet another incremental KitKat bump coming. Version 4.4.3 has apparently been spotted on some Google employees’ devices.

Myce sussed out the version number based on Google’s typical naming scheme, and the version is running on both Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 devices. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your point of view), Android 4.4.3 is entirely a bug fix update. According to Android Police, there are plenty of fixes involved, which include:

-frequent data connection dropout fix
-mm-qcamera-daemon crash and optimization fixes
-camera focus in regular and HDR modes fixes
-Power Manager display wakelock fix
-multiple Bluetooth fixes
-fix for a random reboot
-app shortcuts sometimes got removed from launcher after update
-USB debugging security fix
-app shortcuts security fix
-Wi-Fi auto-connect fix
-other camera fixes
-MMS, Email/Exchange, Calendar, People/Dialer/Contacts, DSP, IPv6, VPN fixes
stuck in activation screen fix
-missed call LED fix
-subtitle fixes
-data usage graph fix
-Internet telephony fix
-FCC compliance fix
-miscellaneous fixes


It’s possible that a new generation of Android is coming soon, and there may well be another incremental bump or two for KitKat, but we’ll just have to wait and see.

Wasn't this version supposed to add driver support for HCE on NXP based NFC chips, so that Google Wallet continues to work on devices like the Galaxy Note III, Nexus 7 etc.? Any news about this?

They'll probably announce soon that the less than 2 year old nexus 4 will no longer be supported, my guess is this will occur during the summer.
