Recently spotted Android builds, including builds KTU65 and KTU72B, have led to speculation that Google was getting ready to launch a new update to KitKat. Android Police today learned that Android 4.4.3 is indeed real and will be “a pure bug-fixer release.” As such, it will not include any new features or UI changes but will focus strictly on bug fixes.

While the exact changelog may still change, a source has provided the following list of bug fixes that will make their way into Android 4.4.3:

  • frequent data connection dropout fix
  • mm-qcamera-daemon crash and optimization fixes
  • camera focus in regular and HDR modes fixes
  • Power Manager display wakelock fix
  • multiple Bluetooth fixes
  • fix for a random reboot
  • app shortcuts sometimes got removed from launcher after update
  • USB debugging security fix
  • app shortcuts security fix
  • Wi-Fi auto-connect fix
  • other camera fixes
  • MMS, Email/Exchange, Calendar, People/Dialer/Contacts, DSP, IPv6, VPN fixes
  • stuck in activation screen fix
  • missed call LED fix
  • subtitle fixes
  • data usage graph fix
  • Internet telephony fix
  • FCC compliance fix
  • miscellaneous fixes

We’ll know exactly what this latest update contains when it is released and Google releases the details and code to the AOSP repositories.

In the meantime, it appears that Google has cranked out another build. This latest one, KTU83 and running on a Nexus 7 this time, was apparently compiled on March 24, 2014.
