After the Android 4.4 KitKat was announced last month, no further updates were shared by the company. Nobody is sure what the new version is going to look like with everyone suspecting that the release of the KitKat Android will be more of an advertising gig for the chocolate maker rather than being a game-changer OS update. The news was a bit of let down since a major Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie OS update was supposed to be here by now. Today though, a few leaked images of Android 4.4 KitKat‘s UI have been posted giving some idea about what to expect.
Since Apple’s major 7th update is still very new in our lives, somehow we get the feeling of the similar minimalistic designing in these leaked images. User interface looks a bit freshened and brighter. These leaked images also show redesigned dialer and messages app with lighter color than previously seen in Android. Status bar icons appear to be grey and the dialer app has a new keyboard design. These leaked images also show colored status bar which changes color according to the picked theme.
Though the images don’t show off any new functionality, we still can see some major redesigning which wasn’t being expected with the incremental update. Hopes are still low as FAndroiders were looking for something big like iOS 7 and have been handed with the news of an incremental update. We do hope though that Google will make up to the absence of Android 5.0.
The latest Android 4.4 KitKat is set to be revealed on October 14th this year alongside the muchly awaited Nexus 5 smart phone. An updated Nexus 10 released either by Samsung or Asus running the new OS is also expected. If rumors are right, it’s just a few weeks until we can see what Google is busy doing for us.
