The new versions of Android have been arriving thick and fast over the past year, and although Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is still only a couple of months old, Android 4.4 KitKat has already been confirmed by Google. Since it first came to light that Android 4.4 was incoming, the tech world has been diligent as ever in its search for details, and has just unearthed some screenshots of the upcoming release in action. As you'll spot below, those previously-visited UI tweaks are present for all to see, as well as larger home screen icons.
The rumor mill never ceases to be more and more interesting now, does it? According to the latest on the grapevine, Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat - the latest version of Android - running on the Google branded Nexus 5, might make an appearance as soon as Oct. 15, 2013. That puts the launch of the new device and the new Android version merely days away, not even a full week! Exciting, isn’t it?
For a large portion of this year, it was widely thought that Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie would be the next significant release from Google, so the impromptu announcement of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean a couple of months ago was certainly a bit of a shock. With the Big G having diverted attention from 5.0 momentarily, we were then almost certain that the search giant had no further tricks up its sleeve. How wrong we were; Android 4.4 KitKat was announced last month, and although we don't have much of an idea of what it will include as yet, a new leak purports to offer a sneak preview of the new user interface.
Whether it's going to be called the Nexus 5 or some other Nexus-related designation, at this point there is little doubt that LG is indeed going to be behind Google's next Nexus device. With Apple releasing its iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in a few short days, the latest Nexus leak comes at just the right time for Google, with the more cynical amongst us wondering whether it's one of those leaks that isn't entirely accidental.
Nokia is in between a big transition and in the process of being fully acquired by Microsoft over the coming days, but that isn't stopping its German arm from having a bit of run on the way down.
It's been a pretty big day for Google. It all kicked off when the Android maker announced via Google+ that the next version of Android would be called Android 4.4 KitKat. The first time that a brand name has been used for one of Google's famous sweet inspired version names, KitKat is more than just a title.
