1. Android KitKat will release sometime in October:

We have gotten confirmation from Nestle that KitKat will release in October. Rumors hint towards the 14th (just 3 days from now!. How much the Official PR of Nestle can be relied to accurately predict Android 4.4's Release Date is anybody's gues.

2. Android 4.4 Will be Optimized for "Old Hardware"

Google has promised an experience that no one will miss out on and that includes Legacy support for what tech enthusiasts would deem Old Hardware. That includes optimized support for relatively old or low end android devices ad also hints at a new Low Power Kernel and thus more battery life.

3. White Grey instead of Holo Theme

I must say that unlike some users who claim to be in love with the Holo theme of Android i dont feel any articular inclination towards it. Heck, i usually mod my gui anyways. Still if you are one of those guys obsessed with color this might be a bad surprise for you.

4. New Boot Animation for the Android 4.4 KitKat

Also we can clearly see from the leaked Android 4.4 video that KitKat will feature new boot animation. Yayy? Doesn't really make a difference i guess, still pretty cool.

5. Updated Download Manager

Well, we believe that the Download Manager will be revamped in the upcoming version of Android. From what we can see it will be visual only. Although we cold very easily be wrong seeing we only have a video to work with.
