Maybe LG paid Google not to release Android 4.4 KitKat on older Samsung Nexus devices...
i have Gnex and i will not get the update 4.4? :| f**k u google im done with android! the old iphone 4 gets ios 7 but gnex dont get the 4.4! goodbye google oodbye android! HI APPLE
What kind of phones will be able to update the OS?
The galaxy s3 maybe? :P
How about my htc desire that was a nexus clone, rubbish rubbish rubbish! Should have stuck with Apple least they update their old phones.
AnonD-202220, 01 Nov 2013I just hope the manufacturers go through with updating.
Like the Galaxy Nexus it just disappo... moreI think the main problem to that is the manufacturers of the SoC of those phones. TI is no more, the Hummingbird that equips Nexus S is long past any support from Samsung. No drivers, old kernel. Old kernel, old drivers and newest Android will not be exactly compatible without a lot of work.
At least the Nexus line has one of the biggest development communities. :)
I just hope the manufacturers go through with updating.
Like the Galaxy Nexus it just disappointing that Google is trying to encourage this and is not updating it. I feel to set an example they should update atleast the Nexus S and the Galaxy Nexus.
I have an samsung galaxy s3 at&T with 2 GB ram does kitkat will support my phone
cheebc, 01 Nov 2013well I dont think sony, or any mobile manufacturer want to put effort on some old model....
&... moreI doubt it to, just read about XU/Sola, which is far from being real.
If it comes, it will be welcome, if not oh well, there are quite a good JB ROMs out there.
As I said, only time will tell.

If my predictions are correct. By 2014 will only 4.4 be available to all manufacturers. And by that time. It will also take 2 months for a 64 bit apk game to be released on android platform. How will android cope up with ios in terms of app production rate if it has a 1000 app gap?
That picture of the KitKat Android... wish they sold them as an actual bar =P
jelly bean was the best android version eva..all this illusions from google of locking in android is not worth a name change..this is pathetic.
I think Samsung Galaxy S5 runs on the new Android 4.4 KitKat even the Galaxy Note 3 can be upgrade as well.
