  1. Motorola has become the first manufacturer to deliver an Android 4.4 KitKat update to a device that isn’t a Nexus and on Verizon no less. Understandably, Motorola is pretty happy with themselves but, it seems like they have bigger plans for Android 4.4 and a whole host of older devices. Those using a Motorola device before the Moto X and Google came along could very well have a reason to smile today, and it might make getting to upgrade time that little bit easier. Motorola’s support site has been updated with some info about upcoming software updates for a number of devices, as Android Police
  2. Capping off a busy day chock-full of KitKat news, Google has just released a new build of Android 4.4 to the AOSP servers and various recent Nexus devices. The new build comes in at version KRT16S, and it replaces the older KRT16O build. The KRT16S update is currently available for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012 – all variants), Nexus 7 (2013 – all variants), and Nexus 10. Curiously left out, however, is the Google Nexus 5, which features a different build altogether (KRT16M). Also of note, this new KRT16O build is unrelated to the mystery KOT31B build seen a week and a half ago on the C
  3. Android 4.4, also known as KitKat, is the most recent version of Google’s popular operating system, and it’s already shipping in several new devices around the world. But what about the 900 million or so Android devices that have been sold to date? How do you know if your phone or tablet will get a sweet KitKat upgrade? Here's a guide to the major manufacturers and their KitKat roadmaps so far. Google The Nexus 7 and Nexus 10, will all receive the KitKat upgrade. Motorola Motorola is primed to show off the latest and greatest facets of Android and the new KitKat operating system. I
  4. Motorola XT1032 has made its way on the internet through various leaks. Yesterday it popped up on GFX Benchmark's database. Its scorecard has revealed the device comes with a 720p display and is powered by a Snapdragon 400 chipset with a quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 processor and Adreno 305 GPU. The Android version in charge is 4.4 KitKat. Today Amazon UK has listed the XT1032, revealing its price. The smartphone is said to cost £160 with an expected release date of November 13. The description of the phone clearly states this is indeed the Motorola Moto G but sheds no light on the spec

    HTC M8 specs leaked

    The device looks to be quite similar to the HTC One, but with a black case instead of the silver, but we didn't really know what to expect from the device specs until now. the potential leaked specs are pretty bare bones and don't really reveal anything we couldn't have guessed for ourselves. According to Evleaks, the HTC M8 will feature a 5-inch 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, and be running Android 4.4 KitKat. The only real surprise there is KitKat, but the additions of Android 4.4 will be hidden a bit given the device will be skinned with Sense, which is rumored to be vers
  6. Google has announced that the new Android KitKat operating system will begin rolling out to Google’s own tablets starting today. The rollout process will likely be completed over a period of time. Android 4.4 will be reaching the Nexus 7 (both last year’s model and this year’s new model) and the Nexus 10. KitKat brings several improvements to Android, including changes to Google Now, SMS integration with Hangouts, and general performance enhancements. Google says KitKat for the Nexus 4 and cellular-enabled Nexus 7 is coming soon. Original Article
  7. Early benchmark results are often a good way of discovering whether a new device is being tested out, and with talk currently rife regarding Samsung’s next batch of flagship smartphones, benchmarks found over at GFXBench could already show the full list of specs of the Galaxy S5. The S4 only arrived in the late spring, but with sales having not reached expectations, the Korean company is said to be working doubly hard on its eventual successor. According to the GFXBench results, the device will boast the latest and greatest Android 4.4 KitKat, a Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.5 GHz as w
  8. Google Now is a lot like Apple's Siri: it responds to voice commands and can perform lots of cool and practical functions. if you invoke the help command or look at Google's own support page, you'll get only an abbreviated list of the available voice actions. However, there's a new infographic listing around 60 new Google Now voice commands, everything from Communication to Notes & Reminders to Easter Eggs. Here's the full infographic. Chances are good you'll learn some new ways to get more from Google Now. And if you know of any other commands not listed here, by all means sha
  9. A company called OptoFidelity conducted some tests using its own OptoFidelity VideoMultimeter and various versions of the Nexus 7 tablet. The tests revealed that video playbacks look better on Android 4.3 than on Android 4.4. Even stranger, the best picture was seen on the older version of the Nexus 7 powered by Android 4.3. Three points were measured in the test. The first was deviation, which shows on the screen as a jerking motion. The second test was deviation from fps rate. The average frame rate was compared to the expected speed. Each percentage point off from the expected rate result
  10. There are a lot of new commands that connect directly to new cards that you would find, like asking "Where's my package?" to get tracking info, or "What's my schedule look like?" to get your Calendar events. Google Now has also added in new prompts when sending emails or texts to help get the message you want to the right place. And, of course there are all of the various new uses of pronouns so you can link together searches to get deeper or related information on a topic. The tests were done on a Nexus 5 running Android 4.4, but most of the commands are available to anyone on Android 4.1
  11. Google has announced Android 4.4 KitKat, and it is a fairly big update to the world’s most popular platform, but question remains: when will you be able to get it? It’s a tricky one as always with Android. Google claimed it has made huge optimizations to the platform and its core apps so even devices with 512MB of RAM (the overwhelming majority of Androids across the world are actually low-end devices with 512MB of RAM) can have a good, smooth Android experience. The new Android 4.4 KitKat however still seems to be coming first and only to the top-shelf devices. Here is the list of p
  12. A Samsung software engineer with knowledge on the subject claims that both devices (Galaxy S3 and Note 2) will be updated in late Q1 of this year, not long after the expected Galaxy S4 KitKat rollout. The update will include performance tweaks and updates, and a few new software features. The transparent status bar, new print feature from settings, and immersive full-screen mode will be included. The KitKat update for the S3 and Note 2 is expected to be outed in phases, which means that carrier branded variants will likely receive the update as much as a full month later. Source
  13. LG is planning to skip the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for some of its smartphones and move them straight to the latest Android 4.4 KitKat. According to the report, many of LG's devices will be going straight to Android 4.4, skipping right over Android 4.2 and Android 4.3 in most cases. Among the models cited by our source are the LG Optimus F3, LG Optimus F6, LG G Pad 8.3 (including Verizon model), LG G Pro Lite, LG Optimus F7, LG-D315 (unannounced), LG LS740 (LG Optimus F3 successor), LG Optimus L9 II, LG Optimus Vu II, LG Vu III, and LG G Flex. The LG Optimus 4X HD will be stic
  14. Not too long ago, we heard that Google had finished the Android 4.4.1 update for the Nexus 5 and that it would begin rolling out in the next "few days". As per usual, Google has an odd idea of time, because reports have it that the update has already begun rolling out. And, even better than that, the manual update file has shown up on Google servers, so you can install the update right now if you want. As was explained before, the major features of this update are all updates to improve the camera performance on the Nexus 5. The camera app will launch faster, autofocus is faster, colors a
  15. In time for Valentine’s Day, Google officially released a bright RED LG Nexus 5. The previously leaked Android smartphone is now available to order in the Google Play Store in 16GB and 32GB flavor, sporting the same price tag as its white and red sibling. The red Nexus 5 will be available in a number of markets this month. They include United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, India, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, and Korea. Wider availability across Europe will be announced later this month. Source

    Moto G launched in India

    The Motorola Moto G has finally been launched in India. For the first time, the company has collaborated with an online retailer for a launch. Moto G will be available exclusively on Flipkart, India's largest e-commerce website, starting tomorrow, February 6. If you're curious about the pricing, you'll be happy to know that Motorola and Flipkart have done a brilliant job with it. The 8GB model is priced at just INR 12,499 ($200) and the 16GB model is priced at INR 13,999 ($225), unlocked without any contract and inclusive of all taxes and shipping charges. Considering the phone lacks
  17. Samsung announced the time and date of its next Unpacked event. The Korean giant’s next major mobile product announcement will take place this month, on February 24 in Barcelona, right at the MWC kickoff. The invitations contain more than a subtle hint that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will break cover during the event. They have the number 5 on display which is as clear a suggestion as it gets in our book. A potential appearance of the Samsung Galaxy S5 during the Mobile World Congress guarantees it a great deal of spotlight. Samsung was relatively quiet during last year’s MWC and did not anno
  18. Earlier today, we saw some pictures that seemed to be the fabled Android-powered Nokia Normandy (aka the Nokia A110) going through the hoops of the AnTuTu benchmarking suite. Now, prolific leaker Evleaks has released a few more pictures of the Normandy. The last set of pictures just looked like any other Nokia Lumia device, but these actually show screenshots of what Nokia's skinned Android might look like. Last month we learned the codenamed Normandy device is supposed to be an entry-level Android smartphone. The leaks suggested Normandy will be reusing the iconic Lumia design and will come
  19. There has been quite an uproar over HTC announcing that its One X and One X+ flagships from 2012 won’t be receiving any updates anymore, and for good reason. Its latest update was Android 4.2.2, which arrived more than a year ago. I find it unacceptable that we’re not getting updates at the very least for that 18 months period they promised us for flagship devices (which really should be applied to all devices, but that’s a discussion for another time). I’ve said it before, but that 18 months period of updates, should really refer to Google’s 18 months of updates after the OEM’s phones are la
  20. HTC has always been considered to be sloppy when it comes to updating their (almost) a year old devices to the latest Android iteration. This time around, they have been quick to update their current flagship – the HTC One – to Android 4.4 KitKat, and have been following suit with the HTC One Mini and the HTC One Max. However the older and somewhat lesser known sibling in the HTC One series – the HTC One X+ will not be getting a taste of Kit Kat. An enthusiastic owner of the HTC One X+ sought clarification from HTC Denmark in regards to this subject. That was when a gloomy tweet was sent out
  21. Just in case the various leaks of the Nokia Normandy Android device weren't enough, the latest has spurred a rumor for a potential announcement date for the device. We've been seeing quite a few official looking press render type shots of the device, which usually means that it is close to announcement, if not release. Now, a rumor is putting the announcement for the device on March 25th. As happens with many rumors, this one begins with someone looking closely at today's leaked pic of the Normandy UI. It looks quite a bit like Windows Phone the more we get into the meat of it, but the in
  22. Good news for Samsung Galaxy S4 owners - well, at least for those having the GT-i9500 model. It appears that Samsung has begun testing Android 4.4 KitKat for the i9500, so an official update might be released soon. That’s according to SamMobile, which is usually spot on with details regarding Samsung’s plans. However, it’s been noted that KitKat for the S4 GT-I9500 isn’t “stable enough” yet, so Samsung may still have some work to do. Back in December, we told you that French carrier SFR was expecting KitKat to hit the Galaxy S4 at the end of January (this month). The update for the Gal
  23. The Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 started rolling out in test batches for the SM-N9005 version in Europe, or you can sideload a certain leaked firmware if you are so inclined, too. In case you want to check out what's in store with the Android 4.4 KitKat update for your trusted phablet, take a peak at the video below, which walks you through the new features and alterations in the interface. The guy rightfully concludes that the new Magazine UX, as found on Samsung's PRO tablets of late, or whatever it equivalent will be for its phones, is not going to appear on you

  25. HTC Desire 8 has already been teased once on HTC's Weibo account. The first teaser picture confirmed the looks and the announcement day of the Desire 8. HTC has felt like doing some more teasing today posing even more photos of its upcoming smartphone. Now we got four pictures of the Desire 8 and another confirmation HTC will be announcing the mid-ranger on February 24 - the first day of the MWC in Barcelona. The HTC Desire 8 is rumored to pack a 5.5" 720p Super LCD2 display and run on the Snapdragon 400 chipset (quad-core 1.6GHz Cortex-A7, Adreno 305 GPU, 1.5GB RAM). The phablet is als
