Android 4.4 KitKat Could Be Designed For Lower-End Android Devices And Wearables

Android 4.4 KitKat Could Be Designed For Lower End Android Devices And WearablesGoogle’s Android 4.4 KitKat was announced back in September and we expect the platform to see a release any day now. The latest version of Android is expected to be an upgrade over the previous builds of Android, naturally, but is that all there is to it? Well according to former Wall Street Journal report, Amir Efrati, it seems that apart from introducing various upgrades and improvements to the Android operating system, Android 4.4 KitKat could also be the version of Android that Google might use to target lower-end devices as well as wearable electronics, like a Google-made smartwatch for example.

    Google Rolls Out Invites For An Event On October 24th

    Google Rolls Out Invites For An Event On October 24th

    The world is anxiously waiting on Google to finally launch its next smartphone, the Nexus 5, alongside Android 4.4 KitKat. Given the nature of these announcements, it’s likely that Google will conduct a formal event to unveil them. The company has started sending out invites for an event on October 24th in New York City, but unfortunately, it seems that the event doesn’t have anything to do with these products.

    So what does Google plan on announcing at this event? Judging by the invite, it looks like the event will be focused on Google Play. The text on the invitation is certainly vague, it doesn’t offer any hint about what to expect. “Join us for a night out with Google Play. Music, movies, games, and a special performance by Capital Cities,” reads the invite. We’ll just have to wait until October 24th and see what Google has planned. Perhaps it might have something to do with the rumored Play Store refresh, its unlikely that the company will conduct an event just for that, but there’s a possibility that the refresh might be a small part of the festivities. As far as the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat event is concerned, we’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed and hope that the invites for that particular event are rolled out in the near future.
