More Android 4.4 KitKat and Google Nexus 5 info seeps through the leaked log
posted by Daniel P. / Oct 02, 2013, 1:50 AM
First off, most default apps are listed with newer versions than the ones currently in play on your Android device, with the biggest jumps going to the email (4.1 to 6.0), authenticator and clock applications.
motion come Android 4.4 KitKat.The folks who are running through the thousands of code lines, also noticed that the stock app references have been reworded to indicate their separate publication on the Play Store, just like the browser and keyboard are now. Thus if you have a low-end Android that runs only the core well, you can pick and choose lighter satellite apps. In addition, there are notions of "Google Home" and "Theme" sprinkled throughout, which might indicate some sort of launcher management system will be set in
As for the Nexus 5 itself, besides the return to USB OTG, there are references to image stabilization. These, however, are for both the rear and front cams, so don't pop the champagne just yet, despite the speculation that Google's handset is heavily based on the LG G2, which does have an OIS system inside.

With the lens being a big as it is on the Nexus 5, I'm sure they're sporting some kind of awesome camera which is probably 13mp since it will be a flagship competitor

read somewhere that kitKat will only support 64 bit processor.. how valid is in relation to this Nexus 5? last time I checked, Nexus has never been about bleeding edge specs.

That would make no sense to leave hundreds of devices including the current flagships with no chance for updates past 4.3. I don't know who is dumber the person starting that rumor or the person believing it.

Bring it to Verizon and allow me to buy it off contract for the play store price and I'm sold.

Good luck doing that on Verizon. If you get it, expect to pay in excess of $600 off-contract. Verizon dictates what phones use its network. Once VoLTE comes out, it should work as long as you have an extra SIM.
