It came as a shock when Google announced Android 4.4 KitKat as the next update. That was followed up later in the day with the leak of the supposed Nexus 5. Recent FCC filings confirm some of the rumored specs and even some pictures of the device. Today we’re seeing a few different reports, but take them lightly as they are just from “tipsters”. The sources claim October 14th will be the release date of KitKat and the new Nexus phone.

They even mention some of the new features in KitKat.

 – A new color will replace the Cyan Blue accents in Android

 – The new version will support older/low end Android devices. 



 – New animations

 – Updated gallery

 – New notification bar widget

That last one seems interesting. I really hope they don’t change the cyan either! It looks great! But anyway, the sources for these details are said to come from a reliable source but I wouldn’t take it too seriously. Other dates have been mentioned and we really won’t know anymore until Google hosts an event. Are you looking forward to the Nexus 5 and KitKat? Let me know in the comments below!
