Google Reveals Android 4.4/KitKat, the Next Major Version of the Platform

Google has just announced its next major version of Android platform will be called KitKat. The announcement comes as surprise, even though previous rumors pointed to a major release of the next Android iteration for later this year.

There aren’t any details on Android KitKat for the moment, just the new logo and the option to sign up to learn more when Google launches the new release. The information has been confirmed by Google’s Sundar Pichai as well and the new KitKat release now appears listed besides the rest of the Android version on a dedicated website, along with the following description:

“Android is the operating system that powers over 1 billion smartphones and tablets. Since these devices make our lives so sweet, each Android version is named after a dessert: Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Jelly Bean. As everybody finds it difficult to stay away from chocolate we decided to name the next version of Android after one of our favorite chocolate treats, Kitkat!”

Google and Nestle announced a partnership to offer limited edition KitKat chocolate bars containing "winning tickets" for a new Nexus 7 or Play store credit. "KitKat has been a favorite candy on the team for some time, so for the K release, we asked if they’d be willing to lend their iconic candy bar to its name. Be on the lookout for limited edition Android KitKat bars coming soon to a candy aisle near you. For a lucky few, your KitKat bar might contain a winning ticket for a new Nexus 7 tablet or Google Play credits."
