Google is already testing its next Android KitKat update, according to a tweet posted by @LlabTooFeR,*who has accurately reported on the mobile industry in the past. The update, Android 4.4.3, allegedly carriers the build number KTU72B and may fix a number of things, but will reportedly also focus on a camera bug in the Nexus 5. That phone has been constantly knocked for having a mediocre camera, and earlier updates have tried to fix issues.

In fact, way back in December Google launched Android 4.4.1 which was supposed to clean up the Nexus 5 camera. It still isnít quite up to snuff, however, and earlier this month Google promised that an update*with a fix for the camera was on the way. We think itís also possible that Google could just issue an update for that specific phone, instead of dedicating an entire Android release for a single device, so itís possible there are other performance enhancements and tweaks under the hood that we just donít know about yet.

So far it sounds like Android 4.4.3 is relatively minor, which means you wonít have to fret if youíre picking up a new flagship that might not receive an update for many more months. The next major update probably wonít come until June, when Google may introduce it during its annual I/O developers conference.

Im thinking (hoping) we will get a new camera app, Google acknowledged the Nexus 5 camera bug and maybe it's just a conspiracy theory of mine, but the New HTC One (M8) has a lot of camera features in sense , not to mention the depth sensor and they said they were working with google to support it on the Google Play Edition of the M8 , and this version just happens to be released in 2-3 weeks, you can just preorder it, what do you guys think?

Ha. You never know. Hopefully, we will see some awesome spike in camera performance... Not on the HTC One M8 level, but certainly a boost...

Now if only they could fix the Moto G camera... Hahaha.

Hope that this update makes the camera better, that is the only thing I think anyone could complain.
