Nexus 5 may run KitKat

The upcoming Nexus handset, dubbed Nexus 5, appeared in leaked screenshot running Android 4.4 KitKat, the next version of Google’s mobile OS. With the expected October release date of the Nexus 5 fast approaching, a new report has reiterated earlier rumors that the device could be running on Google’s upcoming Android 4.4 KitKat mobile operating system with white status bar icons. According to the report, the Wi-Fi icon looked slightly tweaked, while an Android Debug icon was also displayed. The screenshot also showed a Bluetooth icon on top of the standard Google Authenticator icon, which according to Phandroid, could be interesting if it is interpreted to “indicate Google’s stance on replacing passwords with a more secure method or turn out to be something similar to Motorola’s Trusted Devices, which disables your lock screen if you’re connected to certain Bluetooth devices.”
