Android 4.4.3 KitKat For Nexus 5, 7 Release Imminent

According to the recent report from Myce, the latest Android 4.4.3 version with build number KTU83 has been sighted running on Nexus 5, which is code-named Hammerhead.

The “K” on the build number refers to KitKat. The third letter, which in this case is “U,” is the quarter that the software was written. The last two numbers is a date-code. For example, “83” would be the 83rd day of the quarter which was March 24th. That means that the build seen on the Nexus 5 is just shy of a week old. The build for the Nexus 7 (2013) was created on March 21st.
