Don’t celebrate yet, as it looks like the invites have nothing to do with Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat launch. According to geek.com who got word from a “reliable source,” the October 24 event will contain no hardware presentations. If their information is true, then we can rule out Android 4.4 launch as well, since Nexus 5 is supposed to debut synchronize with the latest Android version.
As about the invitation Google has just sent in, hear it is very shallow in details. The Mountain View-based giant is inviting us to join them for “a night out with Google Play” which means that the event might be centered on the Play Store. We’ve told you a couple of days ago that the Google Play Store with get updated soon, so this is what the event may be about. Oh, and if you’re a fan of indie band Capital Cities, you might want to hear that they will perform at the said event.
The Google Play event has been scheduled for October 24 at 7PM. It will be hosted in New York and it will most likely be livestreamend on YouTube, just like Google’s main events that took place in the past years.
So, when will Google announce the Nexus 5 and the Android 4.4 KitKat. Most of the reports are indicating that it will be on October 31st, so will still have about two weeks of waiting.
There’s no doubt that the Nexus 5 release date is near, given the latest leaks and the smartphone’s brief appearance in Google Play. As a reminder, the Nexus 5 is expected to pack a 5-inch full HD LCD screen, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of storage, all the connectivity features worthy of a modern smartphone and an 8 MP camera with OIS.
