Exclusive: Another screenshot of Android 4.4. Kitkat with proof it’s real

Posted at 30 September 2013 20:50 CET by Jan Willem Aldershoff

Today we post proof that the recent screenshot from Android Kitkat / KeyLimePie is real. In the Chrome bug tracker we found an image that has the same pie-like debug icon. Previously we posted a screenshot of the Nexus 5 together with screenshots from a 10 MB log we obtained. Several people were in doubt the screenshot was real and therefore we decided to look for a publicly available source.

Update:   Just In: Nexus 5 Camera contains novelty and all the other details you should know

The screenshot from today, taken from the Chrome bug tracker, shows that we shouldn’t expect a colorful design as was rumored. Unless colors can be adjusted with a theme,  we found references to theming in the log file but are unsure if it will really become a feature. Strangely enough the icons in the notifications area are now blue again instead of white like  in the previous screenshot.

In the Chrome bug tracker the developers talk about a  large memory consumption of the Chrome browser on Android 4.4. In the end the issue gets moved to the next milestone as non essential which indicates the issue is more about an optimization than an actual issue.

The screenshot from today has a resolution of 1280×768 which according to our co-reseacher Androidworld.it indicates it’s taken from a Nexus 4, in contrary to the screenshot we posted earlier coming from the unreleased Nexus 5.

Last but not least, here’s an overview of hardware we found so far, excluding the sensors we posted before:

    Meh, where's the on-screen multi-tasking and usb driver support?
    The win8 (tablet) OS will blow it away if it doesn't make inroads to fix these lack of support deficiencies
