Android 4.4 KitKat: Release Date, Features and Performance

With Android 4.3 Jelly Bean now upon us, and the odd new name of Android 4.4 'KitKat' announced, thoughts turn to when Android 4.4 KitKat will arrive and what features it will bring. We've rounded up all the Android 4.4 KitKat release date, features and rumours.

Android 4.4 KitKat Release Date Features and Performance

Google recently launched the new Nexus 7 tablet running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. So, we expect the Nexus 5 and an updated Nexus 10 to introduce 4.4 KitKat soon.We know that the next version of Android will be called KitKat because of a Google+ posting from Sundar Pichai. But that's about all we know: as yet there are no details on when the new operating system will surface or what it will feature, but the KitKat announcement will likely kickstart another round of the rumour mill.

Android 4.4 KitKat: features & performance 

Google Babble (or Babel) is one forthcoming feature we expect to see in Android 4.4 KitKat, a messaging service that aims to unify the various Talk, Hangout, Voice, Messenger and Chat services. There have also been rumours of a Google Games hub. 
In February Android Central reported that Google is working on the Linux 3.8 kernel for Android (it currently uses 3.4). Should that make its debut it will offer a lower memory footprint (yet the Nexus 5 is rumoured to come with 3GB of RAM), with better multitasking support.

Android 4.4 KitKat: release date

With Google's I/O developer conference in May, many of us had hoped to finally see the much anticipated unveiling of what we then knew as Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. After all, during last year's I/O we were introduced to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean running on the Nexus 7 tablet. 
Unfortunately, no Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie or new Nexus hardware was announced. And we now know that the OS we were looking for was Android 4.4 KitKat.
Android Police has noted in its server logs a group of IP addresses belonging to known Google employees. All are running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, not Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie (or KitKat), on either the Google Nexus 4 smartphone or Google Nexus 7 tablet.
