Android’s next version 4.4 KitKat was recently announced with the Nexus5 sporting android KitKat onboard. While Google has already updated the nexus4 and the Nexus7 to the latest version of android it looks like other manufacturers are also very keen to provide the update as soon as possible. Google says 4.4 KitKat was basically designed for devices with low specifications so that it can run the operating system smoothly also there are many improvements in this version of Android os.
Manufacturers have officially confirmed the update for some devices but some devices are still in the dim light. All new high end devices will be getting the 4.3 update for sure but there are some high end devices from last year which may or may not get update, it all depends on the manufacturers afterall.
For now, you will have to check whether you’re device will be getting the official 4.4 KitKat update or not and if you don’t then you can go for the 4.4 kitkat based custom rom available on the xda forums.
