Android 4.4 KitKat has been officially revealed less exactly a week ago, but we’ve seen it ported to several devices already. Well, an alleged Android 4.4 KitKit update for T-Mobile Moto X has apparently hit the web.
It’s not surprising at all to see that the Moto X will be among the first handsets to get the Android 4.4 KiKat update, considering that Motorola is currently owned by Google. Even though the Mountain View-based giant said that Motorola’s Android smartphones will not be receiving special treatment, what appears to be the official Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Moto X already leaked.
We can’t tell you at the moment when the Android 4.4 KitKat update will be officially pushed to the Moto X, but, hopefully, it will happen pretty soon since the first leaks are already surfacing on the web. As I was mentioning above, we are now looking at Android 4.4 KitKat firmware for T-Mobile Moto X and we are curious to see whether TMo will be the first US carrier to roll out the update. According to this XDA-developers thread the leaked build is “fully functional,” packing some of the new KitKat interface elements.
It’s also worth mentioning that the Moto X is one of the few handsets that already runs KitKat-based unofficial ROMs, along with Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Galaxy Nexus, HTC One, and Xperia Z. If you are planning to flash the above build on your Moto X we advise you to proceed with caution, as it may damage your device.
As a refresher, the Moto X packs a 4.7-inch HD AMOLED screen, 2 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB storage, 10 MP rear-facing camera with ClearPixel technology, and Motorola’s custom-made X8 mobile computing chip, which is based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC.
