Google could soon dish another minor update to the Android platform, according to a number of sources popping up in the last week. Expected to arrive as the 4.4.3 release of Android, the new version figures to be all about bug fixes and minor tweaks.

The first whispers of the update came via LlabTooFeR, a reputable and well-connected ROM developer. Suggesting the 4.4.3 build would address a known camera issue, he posited that it would debut within the next few weeks.

A source close to Android Police most recently said that there could be upward of two dozen fixes in the next OS release. As it stands today, many of these features may not be noticeable to the average user. With that in mind, we could look for fixes for features such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, the camera, data usage, and USB debugging.

The KitKat versions of Android were recently found to be the most stable of all mobile platforms. According to the first Mobile Experience Benchmark report from Crittercism, Android 4.4+ crashes roughly 0.7 percent of the time. Tossing in a few dozen bug fixes should see that number further dwindle.
