Earlier today, well-known tech leaker LlabTooFeR sent out a tweet claiming that Android 4.4.3 is currently under testing with a build number of KTU72B. In addition to the tweet from LlabTooFer, a Nexus 5 running the build has since been spotted in a log file (seen below).

Android 4.4.3 is under testing. Build number is KTU72B. Probably it will fix known camera bug.

Although we still can’t confirm the legitimacy of this reported sighting, we wouldn’t be too surprised if Android 4.4.3 was really in active testing. Of course, even if Google is trying out a new KitKat build, there’s no guarantees that we’ll see it anytime soon — though here’s to hoping we do.



So what would Android 4.4.3 bring to the table? We really don’t know much about the update, but LlabTooFeR’s tweet mentions it will likely fix a known camera bug, which falls in line with previous comments from the Google Team. For those unaware, many Nexus 5 users running Android 4.4.2 have reported an issue with abnormal CPU usage due to a problem with mm-qcamera-daemon. Beyond this, it’s unclear what other bug fixes and improvements Android 4.4.3 might offer.

So how about it, are currently having any problems with Android 4.4.2 on your device (Nexus 5 or otherwise) that you’d like to see Google address in a new update? Tell us about them in the comments below.
