With the launch of Nexus 5, Google also showcased Android 4.4 kitkat which was then released for the Nexus devices including the Nexus 4, 7, 10 and also the Play editions of flagships from both Samsung and HTC i.e. Galaxy S4 and the One, last month . Now It seems that Google has started testing Android 4.4.1 the next minor version of Android 4.4 Kitkat on Nexus 4, 5, and 7. The news became evident from the fact that these test builds appeared on 9to5Google’s website analytics reports, with IP addresses originating from Google. Along the same lines, there’s also a rumour that the Google Play edition of the HTC One will also be receiving 4.4.1 (KOT49E) in the “near future.”
Unfortunately, As of now its not really clear what Google has in store for us with this release. Previously, Google mentioned that the Android camera app would see some significant upgrades such as RAW capture and burst mode in coming version. However from past experience it is very unlikely that Google will make such a revolutionary update in a minor release as these releases generally tend to include more of bug fixes then features.
