Android 4.4 KitKat has been available for a little over a month now. Naturally, it was only a matter of time before minor upgrades would be tested internally by the company. Now, it appears that Google may be actively testing 4.4.1 on the Google Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and Nexus 7.
These test builds initially appeared on 9to5Google’s website analytics reports, with IP addresses originating from Google. Along the same lines, there’s also a rumor that the Google Play edition of the HTC One will also be receiving 4.4.1 (KOT49E) in the “near future.”
Unfortunately, nothing is known at this time regarding what 4.4.1 could possibly bring. Previously, Google mentioned that the Android camera app would see some significant upgrades such as RAW capture and burst mode in coming version. However, it may be too soon to expect such major changes in a consumer version of Android. That said, we wouldn’t be too surprised if Google finally decided to fix the Flash SMS DoS issue in 4.4.1.
