The revelation comes just weeks after Android Team issued the statement regarding Nexus 5's fast draining battery bug. Google's developer team (Android Open Source Project) member had acknowledged the issue and promised to release the stability update soon.
The first leg of the software rollout process is expected to begin with Nexus series devices (smartphones and tablets)- Nexus 5, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (both 2012 and 2013) and the GPE (Google Play Editions) devices of Samsung, HTC, Sony and LG.
It has to be noted that the upcoming KitKat firmware is not a major software upgrade, as Google is reported to announce the new L series nomenclature (rumored as Lollipop v4.5/ 5.0) OS at the I/O 2104, which is scheduled on 25-26 June 2014.
