KitKat phone might sound tasty, and the latest Nexus line carrying the KitKat operating system by Google does indeed share a fresh design and some very real treats in the means of new features. Wired.com reveals this Thursday, Oct. 31, that Google recently displayed the latest Android phone, version 4.4 (also known as KitKat) on the Nexus 5.
The KitKat phone is the latest means through which Google is able to showcase its Nexus line with the latest operating systems, and how OS and the device itself are in fact “mirrored reflections” of one another.
This time around, KitKat will be focusing on three important themes, consisting of smarts, design, and growth, says a spokesman for Android and Google. The team is said to be working on a fresh operating system that simply “makes it work” for the new millions of people who will be buying Android devices. With this new experience, Google hopes users can make the most of all that Google has to offer, adds the report, with a pleasant appearance in the Nexus 5 line and purposeful, intuitive use.
The Nexus 5, or KitKat phone, has been developed with LG and is set to help unveil some of the most recent features the new operating system can perform. According to Wired’s review of the new phone, here’s what’s in store:
“Overall, the phone is nice and light at 4.59 ounces. The specs are also solid. It has a 4.95-inch 1920 x 1080 HD display that has a 445 ppi pixel density, made from Corning Gorilla Glass 3. For taking images rather than viewing them, it has a 1.3 MP front-facing cam and 8MP rear camera. There’s a 2.26 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2 GB RAM, dual band Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth 4. All the stuff you’d expect."
The introductory review goes on:
"There are also nice extra touches as well, like an optical image stabilization feature lets you take sharp photos even with a shaky hand — this worked very well when we tried it out. To reach those next billion users, it’s launching in 10 countries, designed to run globally on all manner of networks. There is one model designed for North America, and another for the rest of the world. The Nexus 5 goes on sale today. Without a contract, the 16 GB model costs $349, and the 32 GB model is $399.”
What do you think about the new Android? Will the KitKat 4.4 version hit its mark in having those three themes of smarts, design, and growth?
