Android 4.4.3 Spotted in Tech Document via Samsung's Developer Website

Rumours of the Android 4.4.3 development gains further momentum, as a new technical document featured on Samsung's developer website hints at Android 4.4.3 KitKat in the making.

According to the leaked screenshot (via SammyToday) showing the document, Samsung has apparently revealed a workaround to resolve issues with ConsumerIrManager on devices running Android versions lower than Android 4.4.3 KitKat.

Meanwhile, it is being speculated that Google's Nexus devices will receive an impending Android 4.4.3 update, while a Samsung handset bearing the model number SM-G906 recently appeared in AnTuTu benchmark which suggests the phone was running Android 4.4.3 out of the box.

Given the scarce details about the impending KitKat update, it is still uncertain if Samsung will actually roll out Android 4.4.3 to its flagship devices or consider skipping it altogether to embrace the widely speculated Android 4.5 update aka Lollipop.

As Android 4.4.3 is expected to feature minor bug-fix updates, it is unlikely to include any feature changes or improvements.

If there is any truth to the speculation, then Samsung could be the first Android handset maker to confirm Android 4.4.3 KitKat on its official documentation.

Nevertheless, a recent tweet via official Twitter handle @samsung_dev also supports this claim, suggesting that Android 4.4.3 could indeed be in the works.

Here is what the official tweet says:
