Is Google preparing Android 4.4.1 KitKat?
We know that, thankfully, Google is doing a good job at continuously improving Android. The company announced the Nexus 5 together with the latest version of Android, dubbed KitKat and with version number 4.4, on October 31. Rumor has it that Mountain View is already working on a follow-up refresh, and there’s a lot of speculation that we’re likely seeing Android 4.4.1 KitKat.
The screenshot below was reportedly snapped off of the Chromium site depicting build KOT31B. Decoding the build number cypher has lead Myce.com to believe that we’re looking at a second version of a build which was baked on October 31. While there’s no guarantee to that — Google itself warns about the key used for builds, especially when it comes to the date — some believe that Android 4.4.1 might not be far out. Whether it will be a bugfix/performance update or bring some additional features is yet unconfirmed, and so is the very existence of the build.
