Google will release Android 4.4.3 KitKat in mid-April for Nexus 5 and Nexus 7, according to certain reports. Once released, the firmware update will also be available for other devices like HTC One Google Play Edition, HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy S4, Moto G, Sony Xperia Z Ultra and a few others.

The upcoming KitKat OS is expected to fix several bugs that have been found in several devices. Nexus 5 running Android 4.4.2 KitKat experienced trouble in camera because of a bug called, ‘mm-qcamera-daemon’ which also drains the battery. Several issues like random reboot, DSP errors, regularise camera focus, app shortcuts, security issues, bluetooth problem and others will also be fixed with the latest update.

ROM developer and HTC insider, LlabTooFeR said that HTC One Google Play Edition would get Android 4.4.3 KitKat update soon without specifying the release date. It had tweeted in March that testing of the firmware was on.

Android 4.4 KitKat update was released in September last year before Android 4.4.1 took over to fix the bug that disrupts Nexus 5 camera. It was again replaced by Android 4.4.2, which is seen in most high-end devices that run on Android. No update has been announced off late, despite the problems reported in Google smartphones.

Users of Android smartphone will welcome new firmware update, as it will fix several bugs that have been troubling their devices all these months. The recently unveiled devices like Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 too will come with Android 4.4.2.
