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.

    These guys cant release the update quick enough. Kitkat sucks… I was running the 4.4.2 ota from Verizon. I flashed back to jb after two days. The battery drain was horrendous and I kept loosing my Bluetooth addresses, had to re sync each time I made a connection. I urge anyone running Kk on a galaxy device to do the same…

    The battery drain is awful, they can’t release this patch fast enough. SG4 is my favorite phone and 4.4.2 has completely ruined it.

    For the s4 they should include bug fixes like being able to write to your micro sd card and internal storage, Also be able to run ART instead of dalvik.

    It should also give us cool stuff like the S5 tiles, icons, settings, launcher, apps, and add the download booster in the settings lol.

      Google ART and Dalvik have there similuraties, however it’s not significant. Google ART is still at its experimental stages and sure is a little faster than Dalvik, it’s not much of use. In the coming years it probably will be.

    That’s good but I think a larger question is why are there so many apps that aren’t fully compatible with with kit kat yet? Its not like it just came out last week. Get it together

    Hope this 4.4.3 doesn’t kill phones like the 4.4.2 update did mine.

    That’s good new since I’m a Note 3 owner but I have a feeling that other phone owners may not too happy that the new update won’t we available for other devices.
