    Just yesterday we shared a story suggesting that a new version of KitKat (Android 4.4.1) might be coming soon. This intel has now been confirmed by Google themselves. Folks from The Verge held an interview with Dave Burke, Google's Director of Engineering for Android in which he shared the details of the soon to be released Android 4.4.1 KitKat. It turns out that it is actually coming to the Nexus 5 first and its primary focus is to improve the camera experience on the device.

    In the interview, Burke revealed that this new camera update will focus on five primary enhancements for the Nexus 5 camera. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    Based upon their experience with it, the editors at The Verge are much happier with the camera on the Nexus 5 after this update. They indicated there is still room for improvement, but the changes inspire greater confidence in the camera. The update should start rolling out within the next few days/weeks. The above shot was taken with the new Android 4.4.1 camera improvements on the Nexus 5. Hit up the source link below for several more comparison pics.

    It's so ironic that I own 3 Android devices and NONE of them are currently running KitKat :disappointed: I would at the very least expect my EVGA Tegra Note 7 to get the 4.4 update.
