While there have been some leaks of the Nexus 5 running Android 4.4 KitKat in the past, this one seems to be legit and quite revealing than the other leaks. Images of the Android 4.4 KitKat UI have been leaked on the web and quite a few features of the upcoming Android version have been leaked.
The images posted by Gadget Helpline do reveal some new features of Android 4.4, most of which are similar to earlier leaks, the white WiFi, battery and clock icons for instance are white in these leaked images. These images are of an earlier build of the Android 4.4 KitKat dated August 28th, and the build has Key Lime Pie written all over it. So you can be sure these images are of a fairly old build which might be tweaked by Google earlier before they release it to the public this month (probably) along with a Nexus 5. Also, this build is for Hammerhead – probably the codename for the new Nexus phone but the Model number still reads “Nexus 4”.
You can also see a printing option found in the settings menu and it’s good to know that native printing is coming to Android, probably it would be something like Google Cloud Print that you see on your Google Chrome. There is also an option for payments which brings wireless NFC payments into the Android system itself rather than via third party apps.
The option for managing mobile plan is not to manage it by restricting data transfer on your Android system but it redirects the user to the carrier’s plan management website.
The dialer has a much better look now but it is interesting to see that the leaked image does not match with the one we have seen earlier on a Nexus 5. Probably they tweaked the dialer later? There is no clue about that at the moment.
The photo editor also has some new options for you to play with and that would make Android 4.4 KitKat truly awesome, no wonder why I thought Google acquired Snapseed.
