Google Nexus 5 Screenshots Reveal Android 4.4 Kitkat

Google's smash-hit 4.7-incher, the Nexus 4, which it co-developed with LG, was the posterboy of Android 4.2 "Jelly Bean" for months, before the operating system spread to other manufacturers. It looks like the upcoming Nexus 5 will have a similar honor, with Android 4.4 "Kitkat."

Screenshots of certain settings pages of Nexus 5 were leaked to the web, revealing among other things, that the 5-incher runs Android 4.4 "KitKat." The operating system features a radically different UI than what we've been used to seeing, on versions of the operating system between Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich" and Android 4.3 "Jelly Bean."
