Everybody is talking Android 4.4 and Nexus 5 launch lately, as we’ve heard a good number of dates already. I don’t even know why we are still reporting about these fake launch dates, because everybody seems to be getting them wrong.
Because claiming that you know when Google will unveil the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 will grab you some attention, GO Launcher team announced via Twitter and Facebook that the Mountain View-based giant will introduce the new Android iteration on October 25. Or October 26, depending on time-zone of reference, since GO Launcher is based in China.
When some of their followers asked where did they got the information from, the GO Launcher team has answered that Google just sent them an invitation to the Android 4.4 launch event. It’s a bit odd that the said invitation puts the launch this Friday and doesn’t mention anything about the Nexus 5.
Moreover, with GO Launcher being based in China why would Google send the day before the event, given that the event will most likely take place in California?
Well, both the Twitter and the Facebook posts are gone now, with GO Launcher team claiming that the Android 4.4 event has been postponed in the meantime. This means either that they were right and Google silenced them (highly unlikely) or they only wanted some attention and lied about the KitKat release date (very likely).
Since we’re talking about KitKat and release dates, I will remind you that the Nexus 5 is expected to debut synchronized with the new Android iteration. Manufactured by LG, the handset is could pack a 5-inch 1080p LCD screen, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of internal storage, and an 8 MP camera with optical image stabilization.
We’ve told you earlier today the Nexus 5 will reportedly become available for purchase via Google Play on October 31st. If this is true, this means that the official Android 4.4 and Nexus 5 announcement shouldn’t be far away. Maybe GO Launcher was right and they will be launched October 25/26. Naaaah!
