It isn’t the very latest version of Android – that’d be “Kit Kat” 4.4.4, released to everyone’s surprise yesterday – but Motorola Moto X users on Sprint are getting the next best thing. An OTA upgrade to 4.4.3 began rolling out today, with camera improvements, an updated phone dialer, and bug fixes in tow.
Most of Android 4.4.3’s changes aren’t user facing, but include “stability, framework and security fixes.” The OTA additionally introduces a few new camera tweaks that ostensibly improve image quality, like “more realistic flash coloring” and better settings for low light conditions. The redesigned 4.4.3 phone dialer is also present, as presumably is the new People app.
Here’s an unabridged list of changes:
- Android™ 4.4.3, KitKat® – Android 4.4.3, KitKat, is the latest release of the Android platform. This release includes several stability, framework and security fixes in addition to accuracy improvements to the power profile.
- Camera – Improved image quality – Improved camera image quality including better consistency of exposure, more realistic flash coloring, improved photos in low light conditions using front camera.
- Camera – Pause video recording – Added the ability to pause video recording with a convenient pause/resume button on the viewfinder.
- Updated Phone dialer – Updated Phone dialer with a new graphical layout and colors to improve consistency and usability.
The new software is KXA21.12-L1.22. It’s rolling out gradually, so if you own an applicable device, expect to receive a notification to download it soon.
