Meet The New Android! Leaked Photos Showcase Early Android 4.4 Key Lime Pie Build

Here it is y’all, the clearest and most detailed look we’ve had at Android 4.4 so far! While the authenticity of these leaked photos is unconfirmed, they sure are convincing. The pictured build is obviously an early Android 4.4 release, back when Android 4.4 was tipped to be named Key Lime Pie, not the recently announced KitKat. Not surprisingly, Android 4.4 doesn’t look to be a groundbreaking update, with only minor upgrades appearing in the build.

Visually, the pictures show a new dialer, complete with a blue bottom bar and a grey top half. The app drawer remains unchanged, and the icons show no changes either.

The camera UI stays mostly the same, with the photo editor adding a few enhancements. Android 4.4 KitKat should bring camera improvements such as Tilt-Shift, Center Focus, Posterize and Negative effects, and adjustable image size.

A few new options have popped up in Settings, Payments and Printing. We’re not quite sure what the payments setting entails, but are pretty sure it has something to do with Google Wallet or other mobile payment systems. Printing will more than likely allow users to manage wireless printers, and possibly brings printing from anywhere in the OS to the table.

So that’s it for now! While Android 4.4 is expected to bring minimal changes to everyone’s favorite mobile OS, we may yet see some more substantial changes to the build before it is officially released.

Android 4.4 KitKat is expected to be launched alongside the Nexus 5, which could be happening as early as October 5th. We’ll keep you in the know. In the meantime, check out the gallery below!
