Talking Google releases Android 4.4.3 factory images for Nexus devices

New Android version brings redesigned Phone app along with anticipated bug fixes

In an effort to create a balance in the force, Google has dropped the Android 4.4.3 image for the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 2013 (excluding the LTE version at present), Nexus 7 2012, Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 on their downloads page. It's a 440-465MB download, and you'll need fastboot set up to install it. We've not yet seen any OTA updates, but we imagine they are coming if you'd rather wait. More details and download links after the break.

So far the only major change we're seeing is a visual refresh to the Phone app, bringing a card-based view for "Speed Dial" contacts along with a new accent color. The update is also expected to fix bugs relating to CPU usage and the Nexus 5 camera that were acknowledged by Google a couple months back.

Since I don't want to install 4.4.3, can anyone post the new Nexus 4 phone.apk so I can install it?

Big Thanks to AndroidPolice

Note: If your Phone icon disappears, use this workaround or uninstall this update. We don't really know why this happens at the moment, but don't worry - you can always get your dialer back no matter what.

Forgot to tell that there is a "small" problem for some.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Really weird. From AP's article it seems to happen to a lot of Nexus users in general. For the meanwhile I reverted back to the old Phone version and everything is back to normal.
