Galaxy S5 And Note 3 Almost Ready For Android 4.4.3 Updates

Samsung is apparently getting closer and closer to releasing its first software versions based on Android 4.4.3.

The first devices to acquire an Android 4.4.3 build from the Korean company are going to be the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 3, it seems. That would create perfect sense, given how these are correct now Samsung's flagships in their respective market segments.

According to a purportedly leaked internal document, the Android 4.4.3 updates for both Snapdragon and Exynos versions of the Galaxy S5 have been finalized and are due out before the discontinue of this month.

In the case of the Galaxy Note 3, development has reached the final testing stage. If all goes well, the recent bits should be ready to roll out to users sometime in July.

Previous such leaked documents surfaced last month, when the Galaxy S5's update was still being worked on. Now that it's finalized, the guessing game begins - which will be the first territory (or carrier) to acquire Android 4.4.3?

One thing to note is that the document pictured above has some odd font differences in it, which may indicate a poor Photoshop job. So do hold this with a pinch of salt.

Further complicating things is the fact that Google has just released Android 4.4.4 to its Nexus devices, a version that seems to contain a pretty vital security fix.

That leads us to wonder: will Samsung first release 4.4.3 for its devices only to then start working on what is now the latest version of the OS? Or will it choose to skip 4.4.3 altogether and simply come out with a 4.4.4 build, even if that means delaying the release for a short while?

Since the newest iteration of Android isn't bringing recent things to the table, just fixing bugs, the latter hypothesis isn't completely implausible.
