Nestle’s partnership with Google is a weird one, even though all of Android’s past iterations have been named after a certain type of food, there has never been one branded like Android KitKat 4.4.
The KitKat producer Nestle Germany has announced through their Facebook page that the new version will be coming in October. It is an odd and mistimed announcement, considering rumors have only started surrounding an October launch.
We are not sure if this was planned or a blunder of Nestle’s part, we guess Google will announce a firm date in the coming weeks and the reply to the Facebook comment was just confirmation of the OS update coming soon.
The event should be host to some exciting developments in Android and around other areas of Google, with the LG Nexus 5, Android KitKat 4.4 and ASUS Nexus 10 all set to be unveiled, the first smartphone and tablet running the latest version of Android.
With the Chromecast announcement at the previous Google event, we could see any new development come from Mountain View at this event and we may even see a new video game console, set-top box or some new software product for Android 4.4.
Even if it is just the LG Nexus 5 and Android KitKat 4.4, the stakes are high for Google to show a new top end smartphone with a low-cost price, following up from the very successful but always out of stock LG Nexus 4.
The new LG Nexus 5 should have better internals, with a 1080p display, Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16/32GB of internal storage, 2400mAh battery and 13MP camera with OIS and the possibility of a Xenon flash, although we aren’t holding out on the last bit.
As for the software, Android KitKat 4.4 should have new enhancements on battery life, screen-size and performance, allowing almost any smartphone to run the latest version of their OS.
