The first sightings of Android 4.4.3 has emerged. Being a point update, it looks like Google is not introducing anything major for this update, but rather Android 4.4.3 will purely be a “bug fix release”.
A tip sent to Android Police indicates that the update is already being tested on some developers’ Nexus 5 smartphones, indicated with the screenshot below. It is said that the update will address several dozen bugs on the system, which is at version 4.4.2 currently, including multiple Bluetooth fixes, camera fixes and plenty other miscellaneous fixes.
Here are just some of the bug fixes that will arrive in Android 4.4.3:
