Rumor claims Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat coming October 14th

Let's start this out properly by saying this: there is no actual evidence to support this claim. There is only a collection of suggestions by anonymous sources for various blogs. That means the information could very well all be coming from one person talking to a number of places and giving the same wrong (or right) information, and we have no way of knowing...

Looking forward to it as well. Does anyone know whether it will feature 64 bit?

Don't go there. Android will get 64 when it's ready, not just because someone else did it.

Samsung is creating an SOC with a 64 bit. Probably it would come.. :)

i had to make an accoount to tell you this
samsung doesnt create any arm chips
they make them following ARM's designes
every ARM chip they made was a stock ARM design unlike qualacom
the A57 chip's design (ARMv8 AKA 64bit) has been released by ARM since October 2012
and TSMC tapped out 16nm A57 socs since April
this 64bit revolution isnt a suprise like what websites show

Where do you have your information from? I guess then the reason for why Samsung hasn't implemented 64 bit yet is that Android doesn't support 64 bit so far?

You should expect 64bit on android about 3 months before iOS gets 1080p displays.

So basically next year in June---> 3 months before iPhone 6?
37. nnaatthhaannx2 (Posts: 820; Member since: 19 Oct 2011)
The Retina iPad has higher than a 1080p display.
Woah! What happened on Oct. 19, 2011 that made us both join on the same day?

Please release it in INDIA along with other countries! Such a powerful phone, with low price would definitely smash all records! I don't know why, every manufacturer should give priorities to countries like China and India for sales.

Can you tell me if I get an unlocked Nexus 5 from US/Canada, would it work in India?

I really hope LG doesn't screw it like last time I mean N4 was sold out in minutes. Really looking forward to this.

Actually Google was the one who suggested to LG the projected sales numbers and approximate capacity.
I like how everyone wants to give Google the pass and blame things on any other company. (hint: actually I don't)

That, and their website wasn't up to speed on the traffic. I was fortunate to get one the first wave, and it took me three tries because it kept failing on verifying my credit card.
New Nexus 7 went much smoother, so I'll take that as a promising step forward.

Super excited to see Kit Kat unveiled. Hopefully this has some fact to it.
5. GeekMovement (Posts: 2156; Member since: 09 Sep 2011)
Can't wait to see this. Kitkat is surely delicious. I want some now.

Looking forward to it too.
Recent handset parity would rock IMO.

Boring. I'm ready for Tizen or the windows 8.1
15. Googler (Posts: 813; Member since: 10 Jun 2013)
That's what is great, no on is forcing you to buy an Android phone. You can buy whatever you like.
23. Samir_Maric (Posts: 87; Member since: 28 Oct 2012)
I'm not forcing you but the truth is android is better then both Tizen or the windows 8.1
