Android 4.4 Kitkat Coming Soon To Nexus 4, 7, And 10

Samsung GALAXY Nexus owners won't be so lucky.


Google has announced the Nexus 5, which will run  a brand new version of Android called KitKat (4.4). But that won't be the only device to run the OS. Thankfully, you don't have to purchase a new phone to try your hands on the latest software. According to the search-giant, Android 4.4 will be rolled out to Nexus 4, 7, 10, Samsung GALAXY S4 and HTC One Google Play edition devices in coming weeks.

The Samsung GALAXY Nexus users on the other hand, will notbe as lucky — Google has officially announced that there will be no further updates for the phone. Many have found this move puzzling, since the search-giant has been touting about the latest Android’s smaller memory footprint, which should enable phones with 512 MB RAM to work with Kitkat without too many issues. So why is Google ending support for the GALAXY Nexus? Here's what Google has to say on its FAQ page: "Galaxy Nexus, which first launched two years ago, falls outside of the 18-month update window when Google and others traditionally update devices".

No point blaming Samsung for it's hardware, it's being pulled down further thanks to Google's unwillingness to use its manpower to work on older phones.
