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

Android 4.4 KitKat are expected to be released on October 14th. It is certainly possible, especially since Nexus products are usually launched in the Google Play Store first, which means there would be no leaks based on inventory listings in various stores, or shipping records. If the recent FCC listings are actually the Nexus 5, it would seem to indicate the device is ready to go. And, there have been rumors going back to June that suggested Google was aiming for an October release of Android version K (then called Key Lime Pie).That said, there are rumors circulating that the LG Nexus 5 and
One of the rumors even goes so far as to claim some of the features that we may see in Android 4.4. The only thing that Google has said on the subject is that the update is aiming to offer an "amazing Android experience available for everybody." Previous rumors have suggested that may mean better compatibility with older devices, and possible optimizations for laptops. Ausdroid is saying the update will also offer changes to the Fragments system (responsive design), a new accent color scheme, Miracast updates, new Gallery visualizations, animation APIs, and a notification widget.
All of those sound reasonable enough, although none sound like updates big enough to warrant a full dessert jump from Jelly Bean to KitKat, even though the actual version number is an incremental move from Android 4.3 to 4.4. So, it's hard to say exactly what to expect.

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

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.

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.
