Android 4.4.1 Source Code Released to the AOSP

Earlier today, we saw the release of Android 4.4.1 for the Google Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and Nexus 7 (2013) LTE. Outside of a few significant Nexus 5-specific camera improvements covered earlier, not much is known yet about what exactly has been changed. But as indicated by its minor point revision status, not much is expected to be changed in this new version.

Now, Google has updated the AOSP servers with the source code to Android 4.4.1. This means that your favorite aftermarket developers can start merging the new commits over from Google’s repos into their own builds.

Curiously, the revised factory images still have not yet appeared on the Nexus Factory Images page. That said, we can’t imagine it will be too long before the complete set of images are available on Google’s servers.

Developers looking to start building with the new Android 4.4.1 code can do so by browsing the KitKat MR1 (KOT49E) source  directly on Google’s Git. And of course, end users of the aforementioned Nexus devices can download the OTAs directly from Google’s update servers by visiting the links below:

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5.
