T-Mobile revealed information about the Android 4.4.3 KitKat update already but Google did not make it official yet, although factory images for Nexus devices are already available online at Google Developers.

Android 4.4.3 KitKat has been in the rumor mill for a few months already and it looks like this update is now very close to becoming official. Although Google mentioned it before without giving away any details, now T-Mobile has just announced the Android 4.4.3 KitKat update for Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 2013.

Back in April Sprint removed the info about Android 4.4.3 KitKat from its support pages shortly after it went online. Now T-Mobile will not have do that, since this update is already listed on Google's own "Factory Images for Nexus Devices" page. Android 4.4.3 code is now also available via the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).

The list of bugs that update 4.4.3 is expected to address includes the Nexus 5 camera issues, various battery draining problems, as well as Bluetooth and data connection issues. We will get back to this topic as soon as Google unveils the official change log, probably later this week.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
