The rumors have been coming pretty fast regarding the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat. Since Google announced that the next version of Android would be known as KitKat, we’ve all been looking around for leaks that actually show KitKat. As most of you know, Google was using Key Lime Pie or KLP as their codename for the codename of Android 4.4. As we’ve reported already, Google and Nestle had their partnership all worked out and under wraps since Mobile World Congress in February. So they did a great job at keeping it a secret.
Just a few weeks ago we saw that a build of Android 4.4 spotted and that the build was KRS74D. Now there’s a new leak showing KRS74H as the current build. So it looks like Google has released some updates or new builds since the last leak.
This new leak comes from myce.com who have gotten their hands on some screenshots and log files. As always, we’ll be taking this with a grain of salt as some of these things can be very easy to fake, and it’s been done in the past. In the screenshot down below, you can see the new gray colored icons in the status bar, which we’ve seen in previous leaks. So at least it’s looking more and more likely that we won’t see the holo-blue icons in the status bar anymore. It’ll match the on-screen navigation, which is nice to see.
You’ll also notice in the screenshot that the debugging icon is still a piece of Key Lime Pie. Yes, we know it’s KitKat, but remember Google hasn’t changed out all the Key Lime Pie stuff yet, and I’m sure they’ll miss a thing or two even after it’s released. But that in of itself doesn’t mean that this leak is fake.
We should know more about KitKat very soon. As Google is expected to announce the Nexus 5 or the new Nexus 4 with KitKat in just a few weeks.
