Google has not released any statement on when it plans on releasing the actual update. People can also stay on the lookout for test builds to check what the Android 4.4.3 has to offer. 

Google will also be having an I/O Conference this coming June. According to reports, the company plans on introducing the Android 4.5 update along with the Google Nexus 6. Unless Qualcomm comes up with another processor, Google will stick to the Snapdragon 805. The Nexus 6 may also feature a 5.5-inch Full HD display. Google Nexus 8 has also been making headlines but there are not enough details to go on with it.
