Google surprised the tech world by announcing the new Android update as Android 4.4 KitKat. Rumors have it that Android 4.4 KitKat is going to arrive in the month of October. However, this time around it seems the rumor will come true because it is the social media page of Android KitKat on Facebook that indicates October arrival.
At the beginning of the month, Google had announced that they would be releasing a new Android update to release Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The tech world felt that the next Android update would be called Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. However, Google completely astonished the Android fans by announcing Android 4.4 KitKat. But Google has not revealed any more information on the new Android release.
Since it is called Android KitKat, it is certain that there is some sort of partnership with Nestle’s KitKat bar. Even though Android has not released any information on Android KitKat but Nestle has spilled the beans on Android 4.4 KitKat release.
The KitKat Facebook of Germany clearly indicates that Android 4.4 KitKat update will arrive in October. The said Facebook page was under the observation of The Unwired which revealed that it is through the comment made by Kit Kat which reads ‘Hi Tim, Android 4.4 KIT KAT is tab Oktober verfugbar’. Kit Kat replied this when a Facebook use named Tim Gruchalski asked ‘Wann Kommt Android 4.4 kitkat?’ which means when will Android 4.4 KitKat arrive.
Another piece of news that is doing rounds in the tech community is that Nexus 5 would be an LG device and it is expected to arrive on Oct 14 with Android 4.4 KitKat onboard. Also, the Android 4.4 KitKat will arrive on Nexus 4 and Nexus 10. However, this is quite expected as Nexus devices are bound to receive the KitKat update.
It is a well-known fact that Android’s new version always arrive first on Nexus products. So, if the October 14 is the rumored date for the release of Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 update and official KitKat page of Germany also indicates October arrival, it may be certain that Android 4.4 will surely release next month.
Nothing much is known about the Android 4.4 KitKat update. However, rumors reveal that the new Android update will be available for older devices. Some of the other expected changes in the new update would include resizing of the screen, Miracast updates, new notification widgets and many more.
According to one of our previous posts on Android KitKat, one brand that is quite confident about offering the update is Pantech. Even though Google has not announced anything about its features and release date, Pantech has gone ahead and announced that the Android 4.4 KitKat will be available for its Vega Iron smartphone. As far as Nexus 5 is concerned, it is expected to arrive with a larger display, LTE connectivity, and Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor.
