Screenshot of Google Korean keyboard app shows Android 4.4

0. phoneArena 20 Sep 2013, 22:30 posted on

The video of that alleged Nexus 5 found in a bar seemed to confirm the speculation that in Kit Kat, Google is eliminating the blue Holo theme, to be replaced with a white/gray color scheme; now, a picture from the Korean keyboard IME app offered by Google and sitting in the Google Play Store, reveals more information about Android 4.4 (Note: Google has since removed the picture)...

Yes. KLP was the internal name for it, but the KitKat deal was done unexpectedly. I wonder what the easter egg for KitKat will be though, I liked the floating Jelly Beans in 4.1+

Maybe it'll be raining KitKat bars from the sky onto a tabletop and your touches chomp bits off the bars?

Its android. You can change colors and icons to your liking. Much unlike other OS's

Uh, how? I've read those icons are hard encoded way into the OS.

Black and gray = battery life saver on AMOLED screens!

True, but I still think that the blue holo theme looks amazing, let's hope that they include both of them in the options menu for our selection.

Try Nova Launcher, it lets you pick whatever color you want.

That single feature is already much better than all iOS 7 features combined.

And no - I'm not joking. Yes - I'm serious.
