If you were to be an employee at the rumor mill on the Internet, then all you would be working on right now and talking about right now would be Google Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat. These are the two items that have been flooding the Internet, and we love it every time this happens.
We all know that the year 2013 had been a blast for the smartphone and tablet market. It all started with Blackberry who hosted the key event in the month of January itself. Soon after that, every major smartphone manufacturer came up with their flagship devices. These include Samsung and its Galaxy S4, HTC and its HTC One, Sony and its Sony Xperia Z and Apple and its Apple iPhone 5S.
But there is one company that has been missing out from the action, that’s Google. But very soon, the company will be back in action with its Google Nexus 5, and this new flagship device will run on the most innovative and advanced version of Android operating system till date – Android 4.4 KitKat.
If you are wondering why we are focusing so much on Android 4.4 KitKat, it’s because we have very high expectations from it. Google has come a long way with Android; the company has made a number of mistakes but at the same time has kept on improving. Android 4.4 KitKat is expected to be smooth, fast and light in weight (so to say).
Enough talk, now let’s check out Android 4.4 KitKat. We have the screenshots here for you, but surprising enough, they are not from the Google Nexus 5. These new screenshot images are actually from a Google Nexus 7, the new Android tablet that was recently unveiled by the company. So if you are a Nexus 7 owner, you have a good reason to be excited.
These new screenshots gave us a first look at a number of changes and improvements that are expected to come as a part of Android 4.4 KitKat. To start with, there are a number of UI changes and a number of stock applications and icons have been redesigned and improved. The design looks quite simple and straight forward, thus reducing the load on the GPU.
By the way, you must have also noticed the codename Key Lime Pie in one of the images. It is being said that these images were taken before the official announcement of Android 4.4 KitKat, hence the name Key Lime Pie. So check out the images and let us know what you think about the upcoming upgrade. Are you looking forward to updating your smartphone? Does Android KitKat grab your attention; are you looking for a feature in particular? Let us know in the comments below.
