Another series of Android 4.4 Kit Kat screenshots have surfaced. This time around we are looking at what is said to be Kit Kat running on a Nexus 7 2013 model. These images appear to be following along with what we have been seeing in other leaks. Or in other words, we are still seeing features such as Tap & pay and Cloud Print. But that is not to say there isn’t anything new.
First things first though, as with any leaked screenshots, there is always reason to be skeptical. That warning out of the way, how about we get into some of the points mentioned this time around. The images are coming by way of ZDNet who note things such as the appearance of Quickoffice in the app drawer. Given the recent update for that app, we wouldn’t be surprised if it were to appear pre-installed, however that is an easy install at this point.
Diving in a bit deeper and we come to Key Lime Pie. It seems this build is still full of KLP references. That could simply mean this is an older build, or it could simply mean Google has yet to remove references to Key Lime Pie in an effort to keep these leaks from seeming fresh and new. After all, if something were to leak with full-on Kit Kat branding, that would most likely appear fresh and as a result, more exciting.
There are a few more interesting screenshots here though. Several of these are offering a side-by-side view of Jelly Bean 4.3.1 and Kit Kat 4.4. The differences here appear to be minimal, but there nonetheless. The Clock app is shown with some icons having been moved around, but perhaps the most notable difference between the two is the lack of bold font on the hour. As well, there appears to be some minor differences in the stopwatch and timer.
The Downloads section has also shown up again. This time around we have another Jelly Bean and Kit Kat side-by-side and we are seeing what looks familiar from the last set of leaked screenshots — a downloads section that is noticeably lighter. All said and done, while this seems to be backing up the earlier leaks, we cannot help but feel they are getting familiar. In other words, we are ready for Google to come forward with an official announcement so we can all see Android 4.4 for ourselves.
