A Bombshell - Android 4.4 KitKat

Previously this month, Google dropped a bombshell on all of us, revealing that the next version of Android would not be 5.0 Key Lime Pie – but instead Android 4.4 KitKat. Since then, we have not only learned that the OS will likely turn up in October, but it is also promising that KitKat will support 64-bit processors.

Don’t get too excited about 64-bit processing just yet, no matter how interesting it may sound – and we’ll have to wait a while to see whether Android 4.4 KitKat will really offer such functionality. But it seems more than clear that 64-bit chips will be found in more and more mobile devices in the coming years, so it’s logical to contemplate that Google will be ready to hold them with future versions of its operating systems.

Another hint as to what the future holds with KitKat, as a screenshot of the next version of Android might have been inadvertently posted to the web by Google itself.

The image in question was first spotted by Android Police, in a screenshot posted on Google Play for the new version of the Korean Google Keyboard.

This is just the beginning, ladies and gents! We have no doubt that Google has plenty of other great changes and pleasant surprises in store for us with the impending KitKat release of Android.
