android-kitkatGoogle is expected to update the Android operating system a couple of times this year with at least one of them being more major than the other.  The first one is expected to be the Android 4.4.3 and that is going to be an incremental update before the major Android 4.5 or Android 5.0 update expected last this summer.  Last week, rumors were circulating about what the smaller update is going to bring to Nexus branded devices.  This week, a couple of those details have leaked online and by the looks of it, the update will be worth the download.

Those that have the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and HTC Google Play Edition will be keeping an eye out for this update.  The update is expected to fix a number of issues that Nexus users have been complaining about since Android 4.4 hit the market last November.  The update has been confirmed for the Nexus devices and it could arrive for users as soon as this week.  Google made an announcement some time ago that all Nexus branded devices will be getting Android updates faster than other Android devices.  This prompted users to think twice if they were considering whether or not to skip over a Nexus device.

Google Play Edition versions of the high end smartphones have also been moved to the top of the update list due to the fact that they come with a stock version of the software.  Last week, the rumors were surrounding the Nexus 5 camera issues being fixed, but this week a few other details have surfaced that talk more about stabilizing the Android 4.4 KitKat software as a whole.  Improved camera focus, better performance and battery life, data connection improvements and random reboot issues that users have been reported are all going to be targeted with this update.

Since the changelog is not official at this time, more could be added or taken away as the developers get a good look at the new build, but at least an update is coming.  Google is not likely to confirm the actual update until the day it starts to arrive on devices.  Leaked information, speculation and other rumors are the only source of information for the users that are waiting for the fixes they have been complaining about for the last 4 to 5 months or so.
