Android 4.4 KitKat makes a new appearance in the new leaked images that show the Android 4.4 running on Nexus 7 2013. Couple of weeks ago, Android 4.4 KitKat was shown running on the Nexus 5.
It seems that the new Android 4.4 KitKat is going to be a reality soon and Google is preparing to launch it anytime this year and possibly with their new Nexus 5 device.
The images show different aspects of the new Android 4.4. Starting off with the loading screen. The screen features a red background with Android written instead of KitKat. That is the exact logo image that we have seen for the KitKat chocolate bar except for this time, it’s Android written over it. But one thing here does not sit well with this whole KitKat thing. The loading screen still show the Android Key Lime Pie written over it. It means that the device running the Android 4.4 predates the announcement made by the Google after its collaboration with Nestle and KitKat.
The images are taken alongside the previous Android 4.3 build and we can clearly see the difference in various UI components. The icons are changed a bit in the new Android 4.4. The QuickOffice app is also redesigned and now features more options which might eliminate the need for another Office app for your device if you are a light Office user.
Another noticeable thing is the top notification bar which is now white instead of the cyan blue color of the previous Android build. It is actually funny to see the iOS trying to copy some of the features of the Android and the Android trying to do the same in some areas.
Overall, it feels that Android 4.4 has evolved more and looks a more mature mobile OS just like the iOS. And with the release of the new Android 4.4, Google might fill in the gap that they had been missing from a very long time. The look and feel of the Android 4.4 plus the new features introduced in it might prove to be the best shot so far for Google to steal some loyal iPhone users.
