More Evidence Appears for Upcoming Android 4.4.3, Now Also Spotted on a Nexus 7 (2013)

Four days ago, we first caught a glimpse of Android 4.4.3 being tested on a Google Nexus 5. While very little is known about this incremental update and what it may bring, there have been a few hints here and there regarding what this maintenance release may address. Primarily, this update is thought to bring a fix for the Nexus 5 camera bug, as Google has publicly stated that a fix will be “included in the next maintenance update.”

Now, a newer Android 4.4.3 build is currently undergoing testing. And this time, it comes in at version KTU83, as compared to the previous KTU72B build. Google’s build number naming conventions are such that the first letter is the release family (e.g. KitKat), second letter is the branch code (Release or Testing), and the next three characters indicate date code (quarter beginning in Q1 2009, day number within quarter). So going by their naming conventions, this new build is just four days old, and is five days newer than the previous build.

KTU83 was first seen three days ago running on a Google Nexus 5. But it is more interesting to see that this latest update is also being tested on a device other than the Nexus 5. Another similar mystery build (KTU79) was then spotted running on a Nexus 7 (2013) by a member of the Chromium team, which may indicate that 4.4.3 could potentially bring more than just the Nexus 5 camera fix.

What are your thoughts on 4.4.3? Do you think that since it’s been spotted on another device that it will contain more than the N5 camera fix? What fixes are you hoping for most? Surely many app developers reading this are hoping for a fix for the 0byte running services restart bug. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
