While Samsung Galaxy S5 is around the corner, the owners of Galaxy S4 and Note 3 devices are going to receive Android KitKat 4.4.3 update in the coming few weeks. While there is no confirmation about when this update will roll out for regular customers, Google has already been testing builds for Android 4.4.3 KitKat.
A reliable twitter account, LlabTooFeR, tweeted, “Android 4.4.3 is under testing. Build number is KTU72B. Probably it will fix known camera bug.”
Although Google has always been silent about its upcoming devices and software updates, the latest update was carrying a build number KTU83 and is supposedly going to be the final build to land in the Smartphones. Samsung latest Smartphone Galaxy S5, which is yet to be released in U.S. and is already on sale in south east countries, including India, will also be shipped with Android 4.4.2, later the company may roll a out Kitkat 4.4.3 update for it. This new update will be a fix to the issues KitKat 4.4.2 have, mainly the camera bug. The background apps, including Skype, continuously try to access the camera from its background services resulting in low performance and battery drain.
Currently the update is only for Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3 and Google Nexus 5. Users with Samsung Galaxy S3 still have to wait for the update to roll out. The company may or may not release the update, but if reports are to believed, it is not going to happen at least for now.
Leaving Android, Apple recently launched iOS 7.1 and is rumored for rolling out iOS 8 soon. According to the screenshots leaked a few days ago, the new iOS 8 user interface is almost like the iOS 7.1. Without any confirmation the OS will come bundled with some apps that has only been seen in Mac OS X and will hold a new app called ‘Health Book’, which reflects Apple’s move to bring a smartphone with sensors to measure blood pressure, oxygen and sugar level in the body.
