Android 4.4.3 tipped to bring major Dialer redesign

April 24th, 2014 at 8:30 PM
Android 4.4.3 KitKat Update Dialer App

Google has yet to roll out its Android 4.4.3 KitKat update, which is believed to bring various bug fixes and improvements, but a leaked screenshot seems to indicate that at least one major new feature may also be part of the upcoming software update. According to an image posted on the xda-developers forum, the Google Dialer is getting a completely new look.

The Android 4.4.3 Dialer app features a series of cards for each contact instead of a list. The cards have a colored background with the first initial of the name placed on them, but they can apparently also show a picture of the contact when one is assigned to it. Other elements in the screenshot include the top search bar and the bottom blue action bar.

The new Dialer app was apparently spotted on a Nexus 5 handset running Android 4.4.3 firmware version KTU84F. Android Police speculates that the Nexus 5 belongs to a Googler, considering the names of some of the contacts.

It’s not clear when Android 4.4.3 will launch, although a recent report revealed that Google may have expanded testing to other Google employees, in addition to members of the Android team. Recently, Sprint announced an Android 4.4.3 update for its Nexus 5 version, but Nexus devices are yet to receive the latest Android version available.

The leaked screenshot showing the Dialer app redesign follows below, alongside a second image that shows the Android version running on the phone.
